You are guaranteed not to find a working landline when you visit a home in Nigeria. The only place where you will see one are the offices of a handful of companies. Hence, it is no gainsaying that landlines have been replaced by mobile phones.
This said and unknown to many, the tariffs for landlines are quite affordable and it is even more beneficial for businesses. Then you wonder why Nigerians do not use these them.
Well, a new platform is planning to bring back landline in a creative way. It is BusinessPhone.
BusinessPhone is a startup that allows you to pick your business phone number for free and then setup mobile destinations (smartphone) to receive calls. In other words, you can pick your landline calls with your mobile phone notwithstanding where you are.
In addition, you can configure BusinessPhone landline numbers to first ring at the front desk phone, if the front-desk staff does not answer, then ring the manager’s phone and if he/she doesn’t answer because she is out on an errand, then the CEO’s phone rings. This way, you never miss out on that business opportunity.
BusinessPhone is great for your support, sales and marketing teams no matter how small!
Henceforth, you do not need to miss calls from your customers. You can simply activate BusinessPhone which is very affordable.
