Business Phone System Messaging for Covid-19

June 01st, 2020

In this post, we’ll look at business phone system messaging for Covid-19. Your business phone systems have never been more important as more customers call with questions. Many times, these questions are unfamiliar and may not have been asked before. So, having the right message can make a big impact to assure and inform customers, clients, and other contacts.

Today, changes are happening rapidly as the country slowly reopens. Thus, we have to be flexible and responsive to minimize any negative effects on operations. First, it’s imperative to reassure all callers that you are taking the right steps to keep them safe. Now, we’ll look at some other things to mention on your business phone systems.

Let Callers Know You’re Working Hard from Home

Thanks to cloud technology and business phone systems, the transition to teleworking has been relatively smooth. In fact, productivity for those working from home can be even better than in the office in many cases. For example, a recent Business News Daily report found that working from home can increase productivity and even leads to a healthier lifestyle.

However, the transition to remote work is something you may want to share with your callers. Let them know you are out of the office but remain working more than ever. Then, give them the best way to reach your staff.
