At present, a majority of the small businesses have initiated a switch over to Voice over IP phone systems made exclusively for business professionals. There are many benefits of using this service, but many of the small business owners are failing to realize the value of the features of this phone. It has options such as voicemail, call waiting, toll-free numbers, call forwarding, and remote operation, and a plethora of many other features that can assist the small business in a big way.
1. The Phone can be Integrated with Entry Door Buzzer
By using this feature, you can integrate the analog door phone with the Ip phone for making two-way calls with the person at the door. Also, when you have given access to the visitor into the house or simply when you want to unlock the door, you can perform this action with your phone. This can enhance the security system of your home and office and at the same time increase the comfort quotient.
2. Find Me and Follow Me
We are sure that this feature will impress those who work on the go. Find me/follow me call routing enables you to maintain a list of a list of numbers where people can contact you call before the unanswered call gets pushed to your voicemail. For instance, you can have your office phone ring two times, but when it rings the third time, your mobile phone starts to ring. Further, when the phone rings for the fifth time, the phone at your home begins to ring. If all the contact numbers in the list do not answer the call, only then the call will be diverted to your voicemail.
3. Voicemail to Email Transcription
There is no need to explain this feature as the name of the feature says it all about itself. It transcribes the messages of your voicemail to text. This text is sent to the email address that you have assigned while setting up the phone. So you need not worry about noting down the details in the message like the contact numbers, addresses, and names. You can easily carry out your tasks in a more organized manner. This helps you to organize, remove, and search your voicemails, in a comparatively effective manner.
4. Auto Attendant
The auto attendant is one of the least talked about feature of the premium VoIP business phones. By using this feature enable callers to interact with a menu to reach the appropriate option. This can instantly increase the reputation of your business. The person calling you picture you as professionally capable. Many experts refer to this as an electronic receptionist.
