Whether your retail store is a small local shop or a huge commercial chain, routing calls quickly and efficiently is vital.

The ability to serve customers and communicate with suppliers quickly from every location – even on the go – requires a flexible, reliable system.
Here are 7 ways a cloud phone system can meet the demands of a retail business.
Whether you’re busy helping customers or it’s after hours, Auto-Attendant serves as a virtual receptionist. Callers are greeted with a customizable message and can be directed to where they need to go.
You and your associates are free to help customers without being tethered to a desk phone. With a mobile app, your mobile phone becomes an extension of your business phone. Make and receive calls and messages from anywhere at any time.

Simultaneous Ring directs the call to a group of numbers you set – either in cascading or simultaneous order. This way, calls will always be answered, even if the initial contact is busy.
