You are in the zone, ideas are flowing, work is getting done and the phone rings. You don't want to miss an important call but you also don't want to interrupt your work flow. With the Grasshopper virtual phone system you can see who is calling and send the caller to voice mail without worrying you are going to miss important information.
Why? Because with Grasshopper you will immediately be emailed the MP3 and the voice mail transcription (if you subscribe to the 'Read Your Voicemail' feature). Voice mail is a great asset for your business and we have included some of the best ways to get the most out of it below.
Voice mail when you need it:
Out of the office?
The great thing about having Grasshopper is that you can choose when you want calls to be forwarded or when you want them to be sent to voice mail. When you are out of the office, you can have calls forwarded to your cell or home phone. Don't want to get calls after 8 pm? Set up an after-hours greeting and send calls directly to voice mail.
The other great thing is that even if you are out of the office, your voice mail will be emailed to you (in MP3 form), giving you the ability to listen to it on your Smartphone. You will know right away if it is an urgent call.
Don't want to talk?
We have all been there. The phone rings and you really don't want to talk to anyone. With Call Screening & Announce, you can simply listen to the number and decide if you want to talk or send them to voice mail.
Don't want to listen?
To summarize, there is a Facebook group called 'I Only Check My Voicemail To Get Rid Of The Little Icon On The Screen'. Yes, we can all be lazy and sometimes we just don't feel like listening to our voice mail. The great thing about Grasshopper is that you don't have to!
With the 'Read Your Voicemail' feature, your voice mail will be transcribed and emailed to you. You can get the contents of your voice mail without having to listen to it.
Want to go above and beyond?
In a recent post on the Grasshopper blog, we show-cased how the extensions feature can help you go above and beyond for clients. By creating personalized greetings & voicemail messages for individual clients using separate extensions, you can create strong relationships and make your business stand out.
Grasshopper voice mail makes life easier for small businesses, is there when you need it and can help keep you and your business organized. Find out more about all the great features of the Grasshopper virtual phone system.
