Advanced call routing is one of the most useful technological innovations that your small business can take advantage of in today’s busy world. Most businesses are familiar with routing calls to Auto Attendants, voicemail, outside numbers, or an after-hours call center, but now with cloud phone system technology, companies can get even more familiar with routing options. Below are some examples of advanced call routing options.
There is no reason one person has to field all of your business calls. With group routing, multiple individuals can answer incoming calls on their extensions, direct dial numbers, or even their cell phones. Incoming calls can ring all phones simultaneously or in a sequential order, so none of your important calls are missed.
Caller ID Routing
Caller ID Routing allows you to route inbound calls to a particular destination based on Caller ID name or phone number. Here are some examples of how businesses use Caller ID Routing:
- Important Clients – Route your most important clients to top C-level personnel or your best representatives. This will ensure your most valuable customers receive prompt, all-star service by routing them to the right person or department the first time.
- Telemarketers/Out-of-state Calls – Some local companies choose to route out-of-state area codes directly to voice mailboxes or to a fast busy signal. This helps local businesses increase productivity because employees are free to assist customers rather than talking to telemarketers.
- Vendors – Route vendor calls directly to production, purchasing, sales, source management or Accounting departments to help reduce unnecessary transfers and hold times.
Do you make frequent conference calls? Route one of your phone numbers to your Conference Hub for always-on conferencing. Conference moderators and participants will appreciate a fixed phone number for recurring meetings.
