Emerging technology over the past decade has vastly improved all types of phone service and communications. When using a 1-800 number to enhance the marketing of your business, there are several technologies that are indispensable.
The trick is to make sure that you are dealing with a service provider that keeps up with expanding technologies and offers you all the state-of-the-art advances. Tollfreenumber.ORG offers its customers each of the following options.
Fiber optics. Fiber optics used for telecommunications is considered far more reliable than VoIP because it allows for longer intervals of signal transmission without interruptions. With this technology, lost connections and static from electromagnetic interference are eliminated and calls are consistently clearer. Some companies such as Tollfreenumber.ORG use exclusively fiber optic technology. Other toll free number service providers still use the less reliable VoIP.
Call-Capture. For every type of business, the Call-Capture feature is an essential marketing tool that can be used in a variety of ways. Using Real-Time Automatic Number Identification (ANI) every single call to your 1-800 number can be identified. This technology provides the caller’s ten-digit phone number, even if the call came from a blocked number. With this tracking feature these blocked calls can be unblocked and made available to you. With every call to your number accounted for, you can track new leads, contact people directly as a follow up strategy, and you can develop sales plans based on where calls are coming from. (This comes standard with all Tollfreenumber.ORG services.)
International Toll Free Service. International toll free service allows U.S. clients to place toll free calls even if the business owner or sales representative is traveling, or living, outside the United States. If a business is set up outside of the U.S. borders, the owner can set up a special international toll free number to attract new American customers and to retain relationships with their existing U.S. customers. With specialized international service, you won’t lose any business. An increasing number of American companies are setting up shop in other countries so international service is vital.
Cellular Toll Free. Cellular toll free service is perfect for the type of businessperson who is frequently away from their desks. Cell phones are within reach no matter where you are. Having toll free calls routed directly to your cell is one of the best ways to make sure you never miss a call. This option has countless advantages for salespeople, realtors, and professionals with businesses in different locales.
Make sure that your carrier offers the most updated technological advances available for your toll free phone service.
