Flexible Call Forwarding - An office that has little to no barriers in its communication is able to accomplish more, and efficiently process and act on information in less time. Blockages to information are often unseen, but exist in confusing routing instructions or unclear passageways for clients to navigate through when calling an office looking for specific information. However, a virtual PBX eliminates issues in the information flow through features such as call-forwarding preferences and direct dial extensions. With solutions that address real problems, a virtual PBX allows for seamless connectivity and a more accurate contact approach. An added benefit to call-forwarding is the ability to enhance mobility away from the office, thus making the lines of communication value-driven with constant access to information and resources. Customers can reach the people they need to whether or not the people they are contacting are physically in the office. The connectivity a virtual PBX provides allows for greater productivity and efficiency.
Virtual Attendant - A virtual PBX supplies a dedicated virtual attendant which provides peace of mind and reassurance to clients and customers knowing that they can be connected to the people they need to reach. Clients in different time zones and business hours feel more confident about getting the service and support they need with a dedicated virtual assistant that can securely and instantly record messages. No call is ever lost due to human error or voice mail overflows. Clients expect better communication knowing that a dedicated virtual assistant is there to take their call, instead of dealing with confusing layers of options and circular routing. With a virtual PBX, clients are directed to whom they need to speak with and the channels of communication are clearer and more accurate.
Some business owners may have a need for the automation of certain processes. When businesses have multiple employees with various schedules, the virtual phone system can help properly allocate the necessary resources. The scheduling functions help a business manage the availability of different team members. The automation functionalities also allow the business to set Q&A mailboxes. On occasion, a business may be limited in resources and the ability to set up a section for frequently asked questions can be beneficial. The most common questions for any particular business can be handled in an automated manner with a virtual phone system. This increases productivity and also provides an opportunity for a business to be more low-touch in its approach to fielding customer inquiries. By using the automation functions, a business owner carefully organizes the way it communicates with customers; making for a better customer experience. A virtual phone system offers many benefits in the area of automation for certain processes.
