What is “call forwarding?” You may have heard of the term from your phone carrier, telemarketers, or on television. It may sound like a difficult, fancy term that only technologically-savvy people would understand, but call forwarding is actually a very simple concept. Let’s take a look at the following example:
- Sarah is a mother who runs a floral business from her home. Though her young son, Luke, is at school during the week, she also works on Saturdays, as her floral shop is open six days a week. However, Luke plays soccer in the local recreation league, and Sarah has promised her son she will go to every game. What can Sarah do to make sure she can run her business while watching her son?
- Sarah can activate call forwarding to her cell phone. If Sarah is using iTeleCenter’s virtual phone system, she can very easily forward her business calls to her cell phone number just like that! Calls will ring right to her cell phone.
Call forwarding allows you to be away from your business and living your life without entirely being disconnected from your business. If you’re waiting on an important call or a large order, then you should activate call forwarding to ensure that you won’t be missing anything important while you’re supporting your child or spending quality time with your friends. Call forwarding is simple to activate and can make your life incredibly convenient.
While it is important to spend time with the ones you love, you also have a responsibility to stay in touch with potential business contacts. After all, if someone calls your business and does not receive a timely response, then that person may lose interest in your business and decide to use another service instead of yours. So, call forwarding is an essential tool that you can use to make sure that you stay on top of your business while staying on top of your life!
