Spending time away from the office will provide a refreshing break, but it should not negatively impact your ability to handle important business calls. Virtual numbers can help.
Advanced Call Forwarding
One way to avoid missing a crucial call is to set up advanced call forwarding. Advanced call forwarding provides forwarding options that are just not possible with landline phone numbers. Options include forwarding calls to mobile devices, Auto Attendant, Virtual Attendant, Conference Hubs, time frames, voice mailbox, ring groups, extensions, company directory and more. Once established, you can rest easy knowing that your calls will be handled properly.
Call Screening Technology
Call screening technology is relatively straightforward. Through its use, you can see the phone call come into your business number; however, you will be able to use your work-issued or personal-use smartphone to answer the call. This method will mask your cell phone number by only displaying your virtual number on outbound calls. Unanswered calls will forward to your business voicemail with the option to send that voicemail to email or as a text transcription.
Your cell signal might be clear when you are in the office, but when you are working remotely – particularly somewhere on vacation – strong cell signal may be at a premium. Luckily, voicemail transcriptions can help clear up the parts of the voicemail message you have trouble understanding. Many professionals find it easier to read written text than to decipher audio through static, background noise, and in some cases, VoIP jitter. Use emails and text messaging to your advantage and you will be able to continue to keep up a solid pace even while you are relaxing.
