Today, it is not unheard of to have a home phone, an office phone, a mobile phone, sometimes two of each. Now that is a lot of phones! Each phones leaves you with another location in which you have to check messages and respond to calls. By narrowing down it will save you time and allow you to be more productive. Many people today have disconnected their home phones completely, everyone just calls their mobile phone and besides the additional line at home is just an added expense. Others I know who travel for business have also opted for their mobile phone only, eliminating the office line as an added distraction.

If you are not able to delete a line explore the option of using call forwarding service like RingCentral or Google Voice which you can program to forward your calls all to one number. These services eliminate the need to check multiple lines for voicemail and allow you to get all your calls in one location. Both have plenty of additional useful features like online voicemail, message transcription, call recording and custom call routing. Although Google Voice is free and geared more toward personal use, RingCentral offers an extensive list of additional features and a big business feel, even if you’re not.

    With RINGCENTRAL you can be on the beach and still do business. With call forwarding you can be vacationing and have all your calls forwarded to your cell phone so you stay in the loop of things.
