Your time is valuable. Because of this, there are going to be times when you simply don’t have the time to talk to someone on the phone, or you may just cringe at the thought of talking to some people. By using call screen, you will be able to speak with the people you want to speak with, and politely avoid those you do not. Call screen announces who is calling without you having to speak to anyone. It is a simple tool that will not only free up more of your time, but also help you avoid those pesky calls you dread.
Call screen can be more beneficial than even a secretary. Your secretary won’t always know that you really don’t want to talk to the person on the other end of the line. Most likely, she will just transfer the call and you will be stuck talking. If you have call screen, you will actually hear the name of the caller so that you can avoid those awkward excuses you are scrambling to come up with in order to get off the phone. If call screen announces a name that you don’t want to hear, simply forward the call to voicemail. You get out of the conversation, and the caller isn’t insulted.
Instead of allowing others to waste your time on unwanted phone calls, use call screen to free up your time for those people you actually want to communicate with. Once you use call screen, you will never want to stop.
