Because the trades tend to work from temporary sites rather than fixed offices they have telephony problems that traditional phone companies can't fully fix.
Everyone has a mobile now, but many customers don't like calling them. Sometimes you work out of range of a signal and more often than not you can't answer it safely or conveniently anyway.
How many times have you answered a call but were unable to take down details because you're half-way up a ladder? That's a lost customer. How many times has the customer not left a message? That's another one.
Voipfone has developed systems and tools that solve all of these problems and more, whether you are an electrician, plumber, heating engineer, carpenter, plasterer or any other trade. And most importantly, they're very inexpensive.
Many tradesmen and women are self-employed, and use their mobile number on their van, website, stationary and so on. But this tells people that you are a 'one-man-band' with no back-up.
With Voipfone you can get a landline number for any area code, so you look like a business that has a real base. We simply forward your calls to your mobile or to our Voipfone PA answering service - you don't need any other equipment.
You lose business if you can't answer your phone. Our pay-per-call answering service uses our own award-winning customer service team to take your calls when you can't.
Our team of assistants will never be late, at lunch, off sick or on holiday - there will always be someone available to answer your calls.
This free app knows when you leave your office or home and knows when you return. It can automatically send your calls to your mobile when you leave and then back to your desk phone when you return.
