The importance of appropriate notification during a holiday

During holidays, it is important to have an absence notification on the telephone system so that your customers are aware of your absence and know when to expect a response. This notification ensures clear communication and shows respect for their expectations even when you are not available.

3 benefits for your business

  • Customers are aware of your opening hours
  • Callers appreciate clear communication
  • Go on vacation with peace of mind

Tips for good party day notification

We create professional audio files for your business telephone system. This will improve your image and increase customer satisfaction. Because both you and your customers deserve it.

A generic message remains usable for a longer period of time.

Closed over the Easter vacations? Set up an out-of-office.

Closed during the Easter vacations?

The webshop came up with the idea of ordering a voicemail messagefor the Easter break from us, and in this way can make customers aware of the modified opening hours.

Closed due to corona crisis?

Because of the corona crisis, everyone has to telecommute to the extent possible. If your office is closed as a result, you can let people know very easily by means of a custom voicemail message on your telephone system. That is exactly what Megamobile had us record a voicemail message for. 

Also for vaccination centers.

But vaccination centers also want to convey clear information to callers. Guide callers with clear information through an automated voicemail message.
