many people there is no difference between
checking voicemail messages or answering machine
messages. They think that the only difference
is that to check voicemail messages, they dial
a number, whereas with an answering machine
they click .
But there is a LOT more
to it than that.
If you are in business,
voice mail systems offer many advantages over
traditional answering machine systems including
human attendants. Once you look at the advantages
of checking and receiving voicemail messages
over other systems, you will wonder how you
ever functioned without getting voicemail messages.
Let’s compare voice
mail to 2 traditional alternatives—answering
machines and human attendants.
vs. Answering machine messages.
The biggest advantage that
voicemail messages have over answering machine
messages is their ability to be accessed from anywhere. All you have to do is to dial up your
voice mail system, and you can retrieve all
your voicemail messages at once, wherever
I know some of you are
thinking that answering machines let you do
that too. But the big difference is that voice
mail systems can be integrated with your computer
as well. So, with a voice mail system, you
are able to receive and check your voicemail messages right on your computer.
Better yet, unlike answering
machines, there is virtually no limit to the
amount of voicemail messages that you can
store. So, a customer never has to hear that
there is no room to leave a message. Your
customers can leave as many voicemail messages
as they want.
vs a human attendant
Having a human attendant
to give you messages is one way of getting
messages. But people are fallible (don’t
we all know that). But when you are using
voice mail, you can always be sure to get
your voicemail messages. With a human attendant,
however, you can’t be so certain. Reliability is one great advantage
of voice mail.
