What is “Find Me Follow Me” Calling?
If you’re looking into business phone systems and the features they offer, on-the-go availability is probably one of your biggest concerns. It’s often difficult to accurately guess when and where you’ll be available to communicate. How do you make sure you’re never far from the next important call? Fortunately, this is where Find Me Follow Me calling comes in handy.
Find Me Follow Me is a call forwarding system that allows for increased availability in and out of the workplace. Incoming calls are routed to a virtual phone number and then redirected to one or more targets. These targets can include office landlines, home landlines, and even your personal mobile phone.
Benefits of Find Me Follow Me
One of the best things about Find Me Follow Me is that it allows for highly customized sequences. Let’s say you get a call to the virtual number you’ve set up. Do you want your office landline and your cell phone to ring simultaneously? Or, would you rather have a sequence in place?
If you don’t answer your office line, the call can then go to your cell phone. If you don’t answer that, the call can be sent to a coworker’s line or your personal voicemail. These sequences can be tailored exactly to your liking if your business phone systems include Find Me Follow Me forwarding.
Naturally, this increase in mobility and availability offers big opportunities to increase productivity. Find Me Follow Me calls can be taken through personal mobile devices, and research shows that BYOD (bring your own device) workers save considerable time – up to 81 minutes per week, according to 2013 analytic data from Cisco.
Additionally, you’ll be able to enjoy the ease of only having to hand out one business phone number, not to mention the privacy of never giving out your personal number again.
