Ah, summer. A time for relaxation and release from the clutches of winter. Whether you’re embracing the warm weather or taking a vacation, summer is the perfect time to step out of the office.
Disconnecting entirely while on vacation is easier said than done – if you have a crucial role within an organization, it may be difficult to remove yourself. However, it is essential for any busy bee like yourself to take a break.
NEWT offers over 70 unique and convenient features to simplify your telecom needs, making it easier to go on vacation with peace of mind. Here are 5 NEWT Business features you can use to maximize your vacation and stay connected.
Top 5 Vacation Features
1. Find Me Follow Me
Are you ever concerned about missing a call while you’re sipping a cold beverage at the cottage? As we all know, a missed opportunity can be lost dollars, and a voicemail may not suffice depending on the caller. With the Find Me Follow Me feature, never miss an urgent call. Find Me Follow Me will ensure that no matter where you are, customers can contact you seamlessly. This feature enables incoming calls to “find me” and deliver them to any location, while “follow me” provides the ability to receive calls at any assigned number. Forward your calls to multiple numbers simultaneously, including office extensions, home phones and cell phones.
2. Holiday/Alternate Auto Attendant Message
If you’re heading out of the office for a trip to the Bahamas or a soul-searching journey through the mountains, Holiday/Alternate Auto Attendant Message will allow you to pre-record alternate greetings and office closures. This feature also gives you the ability to toggle between the Holiday/Alternate Recording and the Normal Day-to-Day Auto Attendants recording.
3. Enhanced Conference Bridge
Listen in or participate in important calls while you’re away on vacation with the Enhanced Conference Bridge feature. NEWT Managed PBX provides a free hosted cloud-based conference bridge service with an extensive moderator set including, listen only, leadership role, participant status view, mute/unmute of participants and disconnect participants. Whether you’re in a car, a plane, or paragliding in the Caribbean, you can still check into your company’s weekly meetings without missing a beat.
4. Call Detailed Records (CDR)
From catching up on paperwork, emails, and putting out office fires, getting back from a vacation can be pretty hectic. NEWT can help solve a few of those issues. Call Detailed Records gives you the ability to view inbound and outbound calls per extension (or all expansions), for a specified time frame. This feature is available on the PBX interface in near-real time for local and long-distance calls.
It may seem like a typical feature, but voicemail is essential to any phone system especially when you are away from the office. Each PBX Extension can be assigned a dedicated voicemail box. Messages are stored in the NEWT Cloud with no limits regarding the number of messages that can be saved. Also, they can be saved as MP3s! When desired, each voicemail can be saved as an audio file and sent straight to your email, removing the hassle of remembering that pesky voicemail password. Standard Voicemail Features include saving messages, forwarding messages, temporary greetings and message folders.
With NEWT, you’ll no longer have to worry about missing anything crucial while away from the office. So, sit back, relax and enjoy your summer vacation.
