Your voicemail service may make or break your businesses. Find out if you have the right one, or if you should switch to another.
A business voicemail service is not to be taken lightly – the quality of this communication service may make or break the organization’s relationship with its customers and clients. Having good voicemail functions means that you can receive important call messages, giving you the opportunity to prioritize and return calls accordingly. Having bad service for your voicemail means that you will either have trouble accessing and addressing business phone calls or you lose opportunities to handle messages from important clients. But there are so many companies offering their voicemail services – how do you know you’re choosing the right one? You may want to ask these questions:
You don’t always have free time, and it’s likely that when you do have free time, you wouldn’t physically be at the office where the messages are received. Thankfully, PBX service providers offer digital voicemail which can be forwarded to your email, accessed via your mobile phone or smart phone, or stored in your account with your service provider online. Companies such as award-winning office communications provider RingCentral offers high-quality voicemail services for affordable prices.
There are some voicemail providers that tend to drop the ball by dropping voicemail messages – their system may be incapable of storing or retaining large numbers of voicemail recordings for your company and for their other clients. Research your prospective voicemail service by reading reviews on the internet, speaking to current and previous clients, and requesting for a free or money-back trial of the service.
Not all communication providers offer this feature, but it’s important for competitive businesses – if you receive a voicemail from an important caller, you’d probably want to call him back as soon as possible. Find a service that makes it easy for you – preferably one that provides you with a caller ID function and a simple button-pressing system that lets you return calls almost immediately, the way RingCentral does.
Your voicemail service keeps you in all the right loops. Remember to choose wisely.
