The holidays are meant to be celebrated with family and friends. It is a time when everyone gets together, catch up on life, and enjoy all the festivities. But sometimes it is hard to focus on all the fun, especially if you are a self-confessed workaholic who can't completely leave work behind.
Some business and company owners are also facing the same dilemma. It is difficult to keep your mind off work, particularly in the season where sales skyrocket. Missing out on this opportunity is a big blow financially, and it can knock your brand out of the competition. Luckily, there are various communication systems and products that can help you and your business out during the hectic holidays.
If you are too busy to take a call, phone forwarding will bring the caller to another source – be it to an automated voicemail or your trusty assistant. This is not the same as ignoring the person on the other line because you are sending her/him to someone who is readily available. This will allow you to keep a steady business flow and keep a professional face in front of your clients. What’s more, you can check the call when your hands aren’t tied, giving you the opportunity to call them back when ready.
Don’t like it when you’re not in control? Then, having remote access will allow you to access your business computer or network from a remote distance. It gives you the ability to stay up-to-date with your products and still be in contact with your branch offices. It’s like you’ve never left the office at all. This system is not only great for the holidays but also for bosses and managers who are traveling.
Your handheld device is also an important asset in keeping track of your business. There are a lot of apps available for download (free or for purchase) that store and send information to your employees. Some even allow you to manage your expenses and remember important meetings and events. Plus, they are easy to use and find, and are compatible with all types of users. Examples of these apps include Google Drive, Evernote, and Expensify.
Unlike downloadable apps, remote access and phone forwarding must be from the same hardware provider on both ends to work smoothly. Though using different brands only marginally affects the experience, sticking with one service provider will save you a lot of trouble.
