Find Me/Follow Me Phone Services
Whether it’s a call from a client, a new sales opportunity, or just managing the general operations of your company, it’s important to make sure you have an easy and convenient way to stay connected when you can’t be in the office.
Most of today’s unified communications systems and cloud phone systems offer find-me/follow me services that can ensure callers will always be able to contact you wherever you are, on any device you choose. And they can do so without requiring you to purchase specialized equipment or devices.
WHAT IS A FIND-ME/FOLLOW-ME SERVICE?
Find-me and follow-me are two closely related business phone services that are often sold and installed together.
Find-me services automatically route incoming calls to a given location. Assuming you know where you’ll be at any given time, find-me makes it easier for your clients or business associates to get in touch with you wherever you are – all from a single virtual number that connects to all your phones.
Follow-me service is the opposite of find-me. It allows multiple phone numbers to be routed to a single phone or answering service. Follow-me is especially useful when you’re never quite sure where you’ll be at any given time.
Most find-me and follow-me phone services are customizable and can be configured in a variety ways. For example, incoming calls can be routed to all your devices at once. Or, if you know where you’re going to be and when, to different locations based on a preset schedule.
