But, when you hand those cards over to the people across from you in a meeting, what really happens when they try calling you? For most of us, it’s right there on our business cards: our office phone number. No guessing games or special tricks as to how to contact us are included. But, when you hand those cards over to the people across from you in a meeting, what really happens when they try calling you? In the old world of 9-to-5 office schedules, the answer was simple: you picked up. But, in today’s fast-paced, globally-connected market, the standard “9-to-5, always in the office” environment is virtually extinct. So how do you help keep your company ahead of today’s always on-the-go competition and deliver that immediate response customers, prospects and business partners want without living next to your office phone or having staff use an endless number of cellular minutes? The answer: Dynamic Mobility. Dynamic Mobility is an exciting new communications technology that gives each user a single number and single source for voice mail, thereby eliminating the expense and time spent tending to multiple phones and multiple voice mails. Incoming calls to this number automatically and simultaneously ring at up to four devices you choose, so you can effortlessly communicate wherever you are – Whether it’s on the road, roaming your company’s hallways or sitting at your desk. Seamlessly Transition Calls Between Up to Four Phones With Dynamic Mobility, incoming calls to your number can automatically and simultaneously ring at up to four devices of your choosing — a cell phone, desk phone, soft phone, or even a phone in your customer’s office. You can even transfer a call from one of your devices to another during the same phone call. If you answer your mobile phone on the way to work, you can simply transfer the call to your office phone when you get to your desk. The best part: there is no setup required or software to download on the phones you choose to use. Make Any Phone Function as Though it’s Your Work Phone Each phone you choose to use with Dynamic Mobility has the same capabilities as your work phone: the functionalities transfer over. So, if you answer a work call on your cell phone and need to transfer the call to a coworker, just key in the appropriate numbers and you’ve done it. Keep Company Voice Mail in the Company If you do miss a call, the message is automatically stored in your company voice mail, not on the phone to which the call was forwarded. That way, there’s no mix up between professional and personal messages and no confusion as to where your voice mails reside. This single personal inbox on your corporate mail system can be accessed from anywhere and easily shared with the rest of the organization via traditional voice mail and email. Save Money By Utilizing Your Existing Communications Resources Unlike other mobility solutions, Dynamic Mobility works as a “gateway” service by integrating with your existing phone system. This means you don’t need to invest large sums of cash and man-hours to “rip and replace” your current communications infrastructure. On top of that, Dynamic Mobility helps to further reduce costs by allowing employees to switch calls away from wireless devices by seamlessly switching to “land line” phones when they enter a building, and even enables Smartphone users to make calls over WiFi. This can help drastically reduce the money you spend on cellular usage. Dynamic Mobility makes such an impact on efficiency and productivity that PACT (formerly the Eastern Technology Council) featured it in the August edition of the imPACT Times, its eNewsletter. PACT, an association representing more than 700 technology and life sciences companies, supports the growth and success of start-ups, emerging and established companies by promoting, supporting, expanding, funding, and rewarding entrepreneurial activities in the region.
