Escape a business disaster with an 0845 number

19th March 2010

Your business is probably one of the most important things to you. If it succeeds, you succeed. If it struggles, you struggle. That’s why it’s vital that every part of the business mechanism works all the time. Each cog needs turn perfectly.

We all know that things can’t run smoothly all the time, sometimes one of the cogs gets stuck and it seems the entire mechanism is stalling. This could be as simple as a computer crashing or as devastating as a full blown power cut. Neither is pleasant.

One of the most (if not THE most) important part of your business is how your customers contact you. You’ve invested in a stunningly memorable 0845 number so your customers can contact you easily and calls are flooding in. One after another the customers enquire about your services or products, seek customer help or they buy from you. “What could go wrong?” You think, as business is better than ever.

Then, BANG, the calls stop… You’ve not received a call in over an hour and news is leaking in that the phone lines are down in your area. Thousands of pounds are being lost as each hour passes by. Your potential customers seek their product else where, somewhere they can talk to a person.

This seems like a business nightmare but take it from me, it can happen. The question is, what do you do when disaster strikes?

When you take an 0845 number out with Planet Numbers, no matter what range, you will be guaranteed free number redirections as many times as you want. This means that if there’s a power-cut in your area, the phonelines go down or you just can’t make it into your office, you can redirect your number, instantly, to another destination be it landline or mobile.

Give us a call on 08450 777 777 to talk about your call redirections.
