Get your phone system ready for home working

Firstly to all our current and prospective clients I hope you’re safe and well.

With lots of companies deciding to implement home working to avoid infection, and with the government likely to take similar measures to other countries, now is the time to check and test your Business Continuity Plan (BCP).

An important part of your BCP is, of course, your phone system, take a look at the messages below…

Keep Customers Informed

Chances are you’re taking more calls than normal at the moment, one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to keep your customers up to date is with professional voice messages on your phone system.

Here’s how professional voice messaging can help:

  • Update your welcome message to keep callers informed…
  • Enable the Auto Attendant (for sales press 1, for accounts press 2 etc) so callers can select the department they need to speak to…
  • If you have to close your phone lines then update your Out of Hours Voicemail message to inform callers of other contact methods – such as email, live chat.

Take a look at the examples below:
