Enjoy the Holidays without Worrying about Work with the Cloud
December is a big month for travelling, whether you’re spending your holiday somewhere tropical as a gift to your family or visiting relatives in other states. The last thing you want is for the most cheerful time of the year to be soured by the constant worry that something important is happening at work while you’re away. You don’t want a disaster on your hands when you return, and you definitely don’t want to miss any important opportunities. Cloud services can help to ensure that that doesn’t happen and you can enjoy the holiday season.
Get Away…but Still Be There
Of course, you don’t want to be answering the phone while you’re skiing down a mountain or gathered around the fire with your kids. But it’s nice to know that if there is a dire emergency, you’re reachable. Cloud services allow you to forward your office phone to your mobile and check your e-mail from anywhere in the world. You can check your messages and do any necessary damage control in your down-time so you can enjoy gift-opening and family meals uninterrupted.
International Travel? No Problem.
Lots of professionals fear leaving the country for leisure, because the ability to reach you immediately becomes much more difficult (and expensive). With a cloud phone system, you can make calls when you’re connected to WiFi through a mobile app or cloud calling system – you can receive them, too. You’ll still be on your office’s phone number so you won’t miss a beat. Join in on conference calls, check your voicemail, and collaborate on documents from your hotel without worrying about running up a bill. When you’re not available, forward your number to someone who is.
Customer Service will Never Suffer Again
With cloud phone systems and virtual contact centers, you can make sure that your calls are getting into the right hands when you’re not available. This way, customers aren’t frustrated by phone numbers that go straight to voicemail or ring and ring without being answered. Just set a holiday greeting on your virtual call center and allow the auto attendant to re-direct the call. If you need to close a deal or talk to a client, you can set up a time to chat when you know you’ll have WiFi and still call them on-time. You can even video conference in HD from anywhere in the world! Maintain your company’s reputation of timely responses and helpful employees, no matter what.
It’s time to set your worries aside and look forward to some holiday cheer. With the cloud, you never have to worry about what’s happening when you’re not at your desk, because your desk goes where you go.
