Most businesses will invest a good deal of money into their marketing plans and efforts. In order to accommodate those incoming calls, companies will be paying for a high quality phone service to make sure every call that comes in as a result of their marketing gets through. Toll-free numbers certainly help your business’ promotional efforts because they, especially vanity numbers, make it easy for the caller to reach you by phone.
With the toll free phone number, business can also get additional features that allow their phone to function more efficiently due to the virtual PBX phone technology. For example, there is the auto attendant features that answer each and every incoming call so callers never receive a busy signal. There is also call forwarding options that will ring incoming office calls to any other phone number you port into the system. Calls can be taken by your cell phone or any other land line phone. All of these features come with the valuable toll-free number and requires no additional equipment or contracts. It is a great, all-inclusive opportunity to improve the quality and functionality of your business.
When each call comes in, your company needs to make sure that call is considered the most important duty of the moment. Each incoming call is a potential customer, a potential money-maker for your business. To make sure your business is handling these calls effectively, extensions can be set up for each staff member and the auto attendant will automatically forward all callers to the right person based on the caller’s selection.
When callers contact your company needing customer service or support, a call center can be easily established using the virtual PBX features. New calls can be rotated among staff so everyone can receive the care they deserve as a valued customer or potential customer. Callers wanting new sales information are just as important and should be handled immediately and appropriate because it is these leads that can ultimately lead to higher profits. For every new caller, a call center representative should be trained to make the most of each and every call. It is also important that any questions that can not be answered by a particular staff member, still get answered. The virtual PBX features allow staff to interact with each other and inter-department assistance can be a crucial part of client retention.
