Never miss a call

Using cloud phone systems gives you the option of making and receiving calls not only from a landline but a mobile phone and from your computer too so you can manage your business whether you’re in the office or not. You’ll appear more professional to your clients - while you may be using a mobile, but your callers will see your landline number on their caller display.

All voicemail messages left on your business number can be sent directly to your smartphone as an email, so you can be sure you’ll never miss an important message even when you can’t take a call.
