But answering machines are all too common along with cell phones you can have those that you want to call you directly could do that.
If there is no timeclock, then why have one now?
I'm editor of a small newspaper/print shop but I work from college and am not ever in the office. Currently I'm using logmein to access my computers on an on demand basis which is fine for what I have to get done.
My problems are:
We don't have somebody in the office full time to answer calls
Theres no timeclock
We have no way to track inventory
We use quickbooks and I believe there is a way to add inventory to that.
I'm really concerned about what I could do to get phone calls at my desk that don't get answered in the office. Is there a way to forward a call that comes over our landline to a voip phone that I'd have at my desk? I'm trying to not have to go through the hassle of changing our phone number.
The other two things I'm just looking for advice. My boss passed away in April and I've sort of taken over just to make sure things keep running but these are kind of making it tricky for me to stay on top of customer service.
