Things to do BEFORE Half Term

Unlike schools that close for half term week, you can't afford for your business to just stop!

But running a business shouldn’t leave you choosing between waving goodbye to holidays with one hand or commercial opportunities with the other.

Before you switch off, switch on our 30-day free trial: a virtual business number loaded with tech features and first-class customer service as standard. (Don't just take our word for it – check out our independent reviews).

Here are just a few call-handling features you might like the sound of:

Meet & Greet: A customised greeting is a great alternative to an endlessly ringing phone, and always leaves a good impression. Intro Message is easy to record and upload. Why not add details of your holiday opening times?

Tour Operator: Spread the workload with Multiple Diverts and set incoming calls to try up to three locations in turn. If unanswered or engaged, the call moves on to the next number until answered, or goes to voicemail.

Something to Declare: A quick Audio Whisper before a call connects tells you it’s a business call, giving you time to answer appropriately.

Hit Not Miss: Never miss a call again. Missed Call Alerts emails caller details when someone can’t get through or doesn’t leave a message.

Turn your half term from a holiday to a heyday. Pick up the phone and book your free trial today 0800 160 1111 (or 0333 123 1010 from a mobile).

Then pack your bag and head for a well-earned break safe in the knowledge that your business is at work’€¦while you rest and play.
