Technology is making it easier than ever to operate a virtual office. No matter the size of the company, the capability to have access outside the traditional office setting is becoming a must. From managing one office and a few employees to multiple locations with thousands of employees, virtual office software solutions are possible.
According to this Phone (News - Alert).com blog, mobile phones have allowed people to take calls anytime and anywhere and laptops are helping offices go mobile. This virtual office concept can also be done with Phone.com’s (News - Alert) Home Phone Plus option, too. Once free of the current landline phone company, businesses can switch to this viable solution. Home Phone Plus allows users to forward their incoming calls to their cell phones.
How many times have you missed calls from an important client or supplier who always seems to call the main line? What about the customers in different time zones? With Phone.com’s Home Phone Plus there wouldn’t be the common mistake of calling before or after regular business hours.
This virtual office solution allows businesses to catch every call, and provides international callers the ability to save on the cost of traditional international calls. Those living outside the United States may be using a phone provider that gives discounts for landline calls instead of cell phones. With the switch to Home Phone Plus, those callers can still take advantage of calling the land line and businesses can take advantage of always receiving the call.
Spam calls can also be a problem and the majority of businesses can get two, sometimes three a day. Taking the time to block every one of those calls may become fruitless because of different numbers but blocking them as they come in will be well worth it.
No one wants to get a ridiculous cold sales call when they’re trying to get work done. Plus, these spam calls can take up valuable time companies could be handling important jobs for customers. So, having the ability to block unwanted calls is just another added benefit to becoming a virtual office.
The list of benefits goes on and on but virtual office solutions are highly efficient and cost effective. Home Phone Plus costs less than $10 a month instead of the current $40 a month many companies are paying. When you make the switch to Phone.com’s Home Phone Plus today and reap the rewards of becoming a new-age virtual office, you’ll wonder why you waited so long.
