Fuel growth with tailored business communication solutions designed for Road Warriors & Mobile Workers
Increasingly, work is something people do rather than somewhere they go. Whatever kind of “road warrior” you are, you’ll be familiar with the following challenges to doing business
Are you looking for ways to market your brand as a reliable and stable business?
Without a physical office, it’s hard for businesses like yours to establish yourself as more than just a freelancer working on a side-gig. You need to constantly prove your professionalism despite not to having a bricks and mortar office.
Do you have everything you need to run your business from anywhere you are?
Having flexible work arrangements doesn’t mean you work less than a regular nine to fiver. In fact, you don’t have the luxury of coming into an office with complete equipment ready and raring to go. If any of your tools fail, you don’t have an IT team on beck and call to fix your issues.
How do you find a balance between work and professional life?
When the difference between work and home means simply turning off your computer, switching off at the end of the day gets extremely harder. However, it’s important that you make those areas of your life distinct to avoid feeling isolated or burnt out.
Is staying on top of your voicemail, faxes, messages, and other documents becoming a struggle?
Working on the road requires you to be extremely organised. Without the option of lugging around a giant file cabinet, this task feels infinitely greater. It’s necessary to have a system in place that will make it easy for you to track, archive, and retrieve these information as the need arises.
The phone is the most important part of any tradie’s toolkit. Select and combine from the following services to make the most your most valuable tool.
Have a ‘local’ presence in each city you do business in with your Alltel Local Connect number. These virtual numbers redirect calls to your existing phone, and can be called at local rates, regardless of your location.
Have a professional operator who answers calls in your business name, takes your messages & forwards it to you via email or SMS. Alltel Reception Connect is a virtual reception service that handles calls for individuals, provides support for teams, and can even transfer calls to you. Get an office operator for a fraction of the cost.
Make more room on your desk by getting rid of your bulky fax machine and opting for a virtual fax service. Alltel Fax2Email lets you send and receive faxes through email, making it convenient to organise and retrieve your documents.
