Using Grasshopper to Stay Connected During the Holidaysby Grasshopper Team Published in Tips & Tricks on
The holiday season is in full swing and we know this time of year is hectic for everyone, especially for business owners! Between shopping for gifts, end of year orders, school vacations and holiday travel, your time in the office can be limited.
The Grasshopper virtual phone system was designed with entrepreneurs on the go in mind, that’s why Grasshopper is perfect for your hectic life during the holiday season and throughout the year!
How can Grasshopper help you during the holidays?
We know the holiday season can involve a great deal of travel, that’s why with Grasshopper you won’t have to worry about missing that important call just because you’re not in the office.
With call forwarding, you can work from anywhere. Simply set your Grasshopper local number or 800 number to be forwarded to your cell phone (or any other phone for that matter!).
Keep your customers in the know with a custom away greeting
With Grasshopper, you can also set up a custom away greeting letting customers know the office is closed for the holidays. The great thing about the custom away greeting is that you can schedule it to automatically change at a specific time and for a specific duration. Set this up before you take off for the holidays, just select the duration and time for it to go live and you are good to go!
Example away greeting: Thank you for calling Grasshopper, we are currently closed for the holidays. We will be back in the office on December 27th. If you need immediate assistance, please select option 3.
Stay connected with voice mail and fax delivery to your mobile phone
The holidays are a time to spend with family and friends, but for most business owners, their business doesn’t stop for anything! With the Grasshopper voicemail and fax delivery feature, you can stay connected to your business even when you can’t take a call!
During the holidays, you can set your calls to go directly to voice mail, Grasshopper will then transcribe it and send you the transcription along with the audio to your email. Grasshopper will even convert your faxes to PDFs and send them as an attachment to you, thus enabling you to get your important faxes wherever you are!
Grasshopper makes it easy for you to take your business with you, no matter what your plans are, but just because we make it easy for you to work from anywhere, doesn’t mean you have to!
Happy holidays to you and your family from all of us here at Grasshopper!
