The idea of handling business from a smartphone isn’t new to anyone at this point. Emails, finances, note-taking, payroll, and more can all be managed from the pocket-sized device.
In fact, a Forbes survey found that 9 out of 10 executives use smartphones for business, and 10 percent of those surveyed said smartphones were their exclusive device for day-to-day decisions.
Everyone and their mother has one in their pocket these days, and it’s difficult to dispute the unparalleled convenience they offer. Your phone is always there, regardless of where your day takes you.
If you depend on a smartphone for even part of your business operations, it’s worth it to optimize what’s possible from your phone.
With a virtual phone system like Tresta, your phone becomes a bona-fide mobile office, putting your business communications entirely in the palm of your hand. Read on to find out just how easy it is to turn your smartphone into a mobile office.
All your business communications in one sleek app.
There’s an app for just about everything. What about business communication?
Most virtual phone systems like Tresta feature a mobile app that translates the desktop experience seamlessly into your smartphone.
Download the app, enter your login information, and that’s it–all of the communication potential of a cutting-edge phone system is ready to follow you anywhere.
So, what exactly does a mobile virtual phone system provide you? The short answer: a lot.
Switch between phone numbers with the touch of a button.
Keeping your personal phone number separate from your business number is beneficial, both for your own privacy and to give your business a more professional appearance. If you’re using a virtual phone system that gives users the ability to add as many phone numbers as they like, it would be remiss not to take advantage of that. Not to mention, the ability to add unlimited local or toll-free numbers can help you reach a broader client base.
Tresta’s mobile app, available for iOS and Android allows you to switch between your different phone numbers instantly. This means your phone receives calls from all your numbers, and you decide which number is seen by those you call.
Voicemails, call recordings and more.
It goes without saying that voicemail is an essential component of business communications, but they’re not doing you much good if you can only access them from your office.
A key feature of virtual phone systems is making voicemails and call recordings downloadable from your email on any device, which allows you to easily share them with your team members.
This feature is further simplified on a virtual phone system mobile app: listen to voicemails from all of your numbers, download them, and share them with the touch of a button.
We told you it was easy.
The technology to turn your smartphone into an extension of your office is already at your disposal. It’s likely you depend on it for at least a portion of your work during your day. And it’s just as easy to incorporate business communications into your mobile workforce.
You should pride yourself in delivering a customer experience that’s simple and stress-free. You’ll see that mentioned frequently on this blog, because it matters–most businesses compete almost entirely on that basis. Utilizing a virtual phone system for your business makes working from your smartphone a little bit easier. Your clients, team members and future self will thank you.
