No one can object if I mention in the discussion that a business should shift to the cloud telephony system from the isolated telephone system as soon as possible. Benefits stuck to cloud telephony are countless such as it needs no hardware cost, a cheap service than the traditional costly system. Well! There are a number of worth-noticing points that will your business cost more than you save on hardware cost.
Cloud telephony can be integrated with other tools
Flexibility in technology is very important. Now, when I talk about the traditional phone system, the isolated feature was troubling the industry at a good scale. It couldn’t be integrated with other tools or applications.
Using telephony system only to make communication easier is neither good for business purpose nor a cost-effective decision. Integrating the system with tools like CRM or customer satisfaction tool can benefit the business and boost productivity.
Now, what when phone system is not connected to CRM? The sales executive will have to maintain all call records in the CRM manually. Now you decide! Isn’t doing this data entry task a clear time-waste? I mean this precious time can be used in talking with more customers.
The cloud phone system integrates with CRM and enables to keep the record the details and the history of call at any point of need.
Another great advantage of saving caller’s history that you don’t need to ask them the same questions again which have been asked in last conversations. It saves the time of sales executive and doesn’t create irritation to you customers and make them inclined to your services.
A Proficient Team
Indeed companies invest big amount on training their sales staff but unluckily productivity stats often don’t show any significant increase. Actually, the training program is still following the same old concept. The employees are being trained for products and services means no practical situation is discussed during the session. Will it work long? Of course, no!
With the help of call recording feature the caller’s recording is heard carefully then an insight is drawn about where executives are doing mistakes and how it can be resolved. Thereby, the efficiency of employees gets uplifted and it helps companies to gain more ROI.
No Office Rent
Gone are the days, when you were needed a magnificent building to give a start to your business. Now almost companies are saying bye bye to the physical structure and running behind the virtual one. It could be possible because of the invent of cloud telephony. The main reason behind this switch is it allows competent people to work from home.
Another considerable perk of using this system is that the deferred customer service can be revamped to a great extent as your customers don’t need to wait longer rather their calls are being responded promptly. Your employees remain busy at the workplace and don’t goof-up during productive hours.
Get More Opportunities
The e-commerce websites are seen dealing with more customers during special sale time like festive season etc. with traditional phone technology it was pretty challenging and expensive to handle such crowd and you needed to hire more employees to overcome the work pressure. But with IVR feature of cloud telephony, multiple customers can be served at the same time that too with making them fully satisfied.
Hence cloud telephony saves business cost in ways one can never have thought about before.
