Call Forwarding

Call forwarding is essentially necessary for any type of communication for your customers.  Without a doubt, your customer will be unhappy with the service if they have to dial several numbers before getting through to a person or getting their question answered.  With the call forwarding feature of VoIP, the customer will instantly be redirected to the person who can answer their question without keeping the customer waiting for long periods of time.

Auto Attendant

Another great feature of VoIP is auto attendant.  Auto attendant allows the customer to get in contact with the correct person or information at the correct time.  With auto attendant, your customer is sure to experience an easier and quicker transition to the person they need to speak to.


Voicemail is also another essential feature of telephone communication.  This allows your customer to leave a voicemail regarding their inquiry or issue.  If your customer calls after regular business hours, you want to be sure he/she can leave a voicemail and that you are aware of their call and are able to return that call.  With voicemail, the employees can call the customer back as quickly as possible without leaving the customer feeling neglected.

High Quality Calls   

Another important feature of VoIP is that it leads to high quality calls.   VoIP provides much faster and higher quality calling experiences due to the ability to transmit voice and data through the internet connection and directly to someone.  Therefore, there is a lower rate of disruptions to the calls, which is critical for customer satisfaction.

As you can see, customer satisfaction through telephone communication is essential in keeping your business running as successful as possible.  VoIP allows your customers to experience the highest quality when it comes to telephone communication and also allows for flexible communication solutions.  The more satisfied the customers are with all features and aspects of your business, the more likely they are to return and to also tell their friends and family about your business as well.
