This time of year, there is a distinct possibility that you’ll wake up in the morning, see a perfectly sunny forecast, and have a Ferris Bueller moment. If you’d rather spend the day driving around in your best friend’s dad’s Ferrari, you’ll be glad to know that UCx gives you the ability to carry on with business anyway.
You may find these features of UCx to be particularly helpful on your Day Off:
Calling on Mobile App
When you’ve got the UCx mobile app running on your iPhone or Android phone, you can use your smart phone to place and receive calls on your business phone number. Your callers will have no idea that you aren’t in the office… that is, unless they can hear the baseball game in the background.
Chat on Mobile App
You can also use the UCx mobile app to send instant messages to your colleagues back at the office while you’re on the road. For example, while you’re visiting downtown, you could ask your coworker from the city: “Where’s a good place to park the car?” (Just don’t do it while you’re driving!)
Call Forwarding Selective
If you don’t want your cell phone to ring off the hook all day, but you definitely want to be able to answer when your dad calls to check in on you, you can use Call Forwarding Selective to only forward those calls that matter most.
With the Voicemail Transcription add-on for UCx, you can receive your voicemail messages as transcribed emails. In other words, if you find yourself somewhere that’s too noisy for you to listen to your voicemail – such as a parade that spontaneously breaks out into a synchronized dance routine – you won’t miss a beat, because you can read your voicemail instead.
Remember that life moves pretty fast… if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. And when you’re not tied down to your desk phone, it’s so much easier to live!
