Although faxing is mostly a relic of the past, it still finds use in some situations through eFax.

Although faxing is thought to be a concept of the past, it actually is rather useful in certain situations. For instance, many companies that deal with high-security documents that need to be communicated to another location may not want to risk putting those documents out as an email in fear of hackers or unwanted privacy risks. Sometimes documents are not to be archived in a digital data library and need to remain physical only as well, which gives good reason to fax. This is a common situation in which faxing is still needed. One way faxing is still used is via eFax, a secure, fast style of faxing via a secure Internet connection on a single server. But many people using eFax service may have forgotten how to write a cover sheet for their faxed documents, which is used to identify incoming documents from a fax machine.

More and more people are using e-commerce solutions nowadays, so having good business telecommunications is key to success.

We’ve learned a lot of things over the course of the last year when it comes to sales.

Having happy call center employees is one way to make your evaluation results more favorable.

There’s the age-old saying that businesses tend to oblige to in most situations: “The customer is always right.” While every business owner strives to make the customer as satisfied as possible, there will always be problems that arise with any transaction. A call center is a great solution when it comes to maintaining a positive customer-business relationship and is one of the better ways of obtaining repeat, loyal customers. However, even a call center is not a foolproof way of maintaining customer satisfaction. After all, all customer service employees are only human and can make mistakes. But sometimes, it is the call center itself that can cause its own problems if not properly evaluated every so often. Evaluation of a call center can help to identify problems before they happen again. Here are some ways you can take action to evaluate the performance of your call center to alleviate any potential issues before they happen. Read the rest of this entry »
