Cell phones, office lines, home phones and voicemail. How simple would life be if you could integrate all of these into just one phone? Well, with GrandCentral.com you can…almost.
Understanding that today’s consumer is a person contstantly on the go and that, more often than not, is in possession of several different modes of contact by the rest of the world, GrandCentral is offering workable solutions to your communication needs. Their new service is making it easier than ever for all of your phones to work for you all at once. With no equipment to assemble and nothing to download, at www.GrandCentral.com, you can easily sign up for a web-based telephone number which can be programmed to ring up to 6 separate lines in an attempt to locate you. Once your phones begin to ring, you further have the option of answering the call or sending it directly to voicemail (yes, it includes voicemail) and your caller is none the wiser. Your voicemail can be accessed by web, email or by telephone. As if this isn’t all enough already, GrandCentral also offers you a very neat option of listening in on your voicemail, just like an old fashioned answering machine, and picking up the call at any time.
Should you choose to answer your calls directly, you will also have the advantage of changing phones in the middle of a call without skipping a beat. A great feature to have for those days when you’re on your office phone with a client, but realize you only have 20 minutes to make your way across town to another appointment. No need to rush the call, with the push of a button GrandCentral will switch that call from your office phone to your cellphone and you’re off and running without interruption.
All of your calls can also easily be recorded with GrandCentral, but bear in mind that most states require you to notify the party on the other end of the phone line that they are being recorded before proceeding to do so.
You also have the option of personalizing the rings that your caller will hear when they phone you. So, your mother in law may hear a classic Mozart tune while she waits for you to answer, your boss may hear a regular ring, but your buddies might hear your latest favorite top 40 tune. With GrandCentral, you choose whichever song or sound you’d like from any MP3 file.
By now, you’re probably wondering what the cost of such an awesome service is. Well, hold on to your wallets, because there’s no need for them just yet!
