A virtual phone system lets you separate your personal and professional calls, but still gives you the flexibility and cost savings of operating your small business using your cell phone if you want. Handing out your personal cellphone number to random clients you meet or potential business partners means you are giving out your personal contact information to potential strangers – and no one should have to sacrifice security for business communications.
1. Mobile App
With a mobile app, you will be able to use a tablet or smartphone to access business contacts, make calls, check voicemail and in some cases start video meetings. Basically everything you need to conduct business regardless of where you are or where you are going – giving you the power to operate without being tied to a desk.
2. No Contracts
What business owner wants their hands tied? You have enough binding contracts in your small business, you don’t need a phone service that is going to tell you how long you have to use them, and when you can leave if you aren’t happy with their service. VoiceMailTel doesn’t constrict their customers with long term contracts or harsh early termination fees.
3. Call Forwarding
Call forwarding will transfer your calls from your home office to your mobile phone, but never let customers or vendors know the number they are being transferred to – or even the fact that they were transferred to another number.
You can further use features like find-me/follow me in conjunction with Call Forwarding to route calls. “Find me” forwards calls either in sequence or at the same time to a list of numbers that you designate. “Follow me” forwards calls to numbers based on a time schedule – so you can adjust where calls go based on your day-to-day activities.
4. Additional Free Expanded Features for Small Business
From faxing to call waiting to auto attendant, if you are going to pay for a phone service, shouldn’t you get certain features for free? Believe it or not, there are plenty of phone services out there that don’t offer you any features for free. If you are going to pay for a professional service, do not settle for subpar features. Instead, look for a company that offers you things like:
