Your phone line can do more than you think
When you’re facing a deadline the last thing you want is to be interrupted by unsolicited calls from people you don’t know. Equally you don’t want to lose business because your customers or new prospects cannot contact you when you are away from the office. Fortunately there are features available to your phone line which can solve these and many more common problems. Check out the list below for a selection of the great features you can unlock.
