The Phone Solution for Service Businesses

Any business in the service industry understands the necessity of an efficient communications system. Successfully providing services requires exceptional customer service.

A cloud-based phone system is the solution for any business in the service industry. Here’s why:

Answer Every Call, Every Time

Several features of a hosted phone solution allow your customers’ calls to be answered every time. Eliminating wait times on hold significantly improves customer experience. Immediately having calls directed to the appropriate service person simplifies the customer’s call by connecting them with the right person right away.

Some of these helpful features include:

  • Find Me, Follow Me: Route calls to mobile phones, landlines, or even a computer. It’s a seamless and speedy process that allows your entire service team to stay connected even when working remotely.
  • Auto-Attendant: A virtual receptionist that can direct callers to the next available representative, or to a specific line.
  • Call-Back: An automated service that gives customers an option to receive a return call instead of waiting on hold. When a live agent becomes available, the next caller in the call-back queue can receive their call-back. It is sometimes called “virtual hold”.

Save Costs

Every dollar you save increases the profitability of your business. A cloud phone solution saves your business a lot of money in multiple ways.

  • No extra long distance calling fees
  • No maintenance fees
  • No extra hardware to maintain or set up
  • Automatic redundancy, securing service no matter what (Even a power outage won’t shut off your phone system.)

Along with these affordable features, a UnitedCloud solution offers many other enterprise-grade calling features at no additional cost. These include integration with CRM (customer relationship management) software, voicemail-to-text, conference calling, call forwarding/screening/recording, call logs, and many more.
