I’m coming to you live from my local coffee shop where I’m getting work done from my laptop and my iPhone. A few months ago, we launched our FREE iPhone and Android applications for Vocalocity customers and so far it has helped me stay connected even more than I ever anticipated. Since I downloaded our VoIP iPhone app, I’ve always had the Never Miss a Call settings enabled to “Follow Me.” I’ve customized my “Follow Me” settings to ring my desk phone for 15 seconds, and then activate my cell phone to ring for 30 seconds. If I don’t answer, the call goes straight to voicemail. I love this setting because if I’m at my desk, I’m quickly able to grab the phone and have a conversation. But if I’m in a meeting, at lunch, or on the other side of the building, I can still stay connected through my cell phone. And if I’m nowhere near the office, I can always check my voicemails directly through the mobile app. For example, as I was walking to the coffee shop from my house this morning, I got a business call on my phone and was able to answer immediately. Some other scenarios I’ve encountered where this has been useful are: Sitting in traffic and worried that I’d be late to call in for a conference call Waiting for my flight at the airport and killing time by tying up some loose ends on a project Coordinating with a professional contact located in California – they’re three hours behind us here in Atlanta, and I could still take the call from my home, while looking as though I was calling from my desk phone (even though it was 7:30 PM). Vocalocity Mobile is great for times when you know you’ll be away from your desk and for unexpected events when you just need to stay connected. And best of all? It’s FREE. I don’t use it all the time as my primary method of staying connected over the phone, but when I consider the amount of work I’ve been able to accomplish by never missing calls or having to play phone tag, the productivity adds up to a real value.
