“Tous pour un, un pour tous”, “All for one, one for all”
This french saying from The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas was the motto of a group of French musketeers named Athos, Porthos, Aramis and d’Artagnan who used the phrase to signify their individual devotion to the group, as well as the groups devotion to them all. In modern-day we may not find ourselves in epic sword duels, but the motto “all for one, one for all” can most definitely be applied to many different situations in our lives. One application in particular being communication. Businesses often use strategies in telecommunications like directing all customer calls to one master phone number, and using that one number for all of their employees to work off of. The number is essentially a channel that the business’ telecommunications run through.
Managing the Flow of French Communication
As successful businesses expand operations into French markets, it becomes increasingly difficult to coordinate incoming and outgoing communication. Undoubtedly, the business will start to receive calls from different area codes, countries, etc. When this happens, managing the business’ communications across borders, languages, and cultures can quickly become a problem. One of the most efficient solutions to handling the volume and staying organized is: Call Forwarding. This service allows calls made to one number to be forwarded to another specified number.
For example: Your business in the UK needs to communicate with customers in France. To make it convenient for both the customer and the business, you decide to purchase a France toll free number or a local number in France. The business then utilizes call forwarding to create a connection between its phone numbers in the UK and France. The French customer calls the business’ telephone number in that country and the call is instantly forwarded to the number in the UK you choose. Your UK service, sales, help agents etc. are now speaking to and assisting a customer in France. Becoming an international business has never been so simple and inexpensive.
The Three Musketeers of Call Forwarding
Global Call Forwarding’s service allows you to forward all of your calls to any three types of lines: mobile phone, land based, or VOIP. There are a number of ways you can set up your business’ system of communication. For example, forwarding calls to the office land-line during business hours and automatically switching calls over to a mobile line during other hours. Global Call Forwarding has the tools you need to make your business’ communication run smoothly and efficiently. These are a few of the advanced features that make call forwarding an invaluable asset to your business.
• Simultaneous Ringing: Forward calls from your Local or Toll Free number to two or more phone numbers. These numbers will ring at the
same time and the system will automatically connect the call to the first number that takes the call.
• Interactive Voice Response: Customized greeting system that directs customers to the appropriate extension within your business. Provides better organization to improve customer service and lower costs.
• Select Country Forwarding: Route calls from a predefined country code to a specific phone number. For example: forward calls from France to a call center with French speaking agents.
