SwitchboardFREE launches FollowME
Today we are pleased to announce that SwtichboardFREE has announced its revolutionary new product FollowMe.
Follow-Me tracks your location in real-time via your iPhone and instructs the SwitchboardFREE service to forward your calls to the most appropriate phone number based on your geographical location.
How does Follow-Me work?
You designate a phone number you wish your calls to be diverted to when you’re within one of your pre-assigned locations (or Geo-fence). When you’re not within any of your locations the service will simply divert your calls to your mobile phone or default number.
Who can this help?
Follow-Me can help an individual or team that spends their time on the move or who work in more than one location. You can also have multiple users under one account which is perfect for on-call or shift workers.
Does FollowMe differ from my normal account?
Follow-Me only differs from the standard SwitchboardFREE service in the way it redirects your calls. The service still adheres to your introductions, open and close times, whisper and all the usual features you’re accustomed to.
How do I start using FollowMe?
Follow-Me is an enhancement to the Switchboardfree iPhone application. Once you’ve downloaded the application on to your handset and you’re physically within a location you’d like Follow-Me to remember, you just open the application and click “Add current location”. You then give that location a descriptive name and a redirect number to transfer to.
How to enable this feature
Just log in to your account, click on your 084 number and you’ll find the Follow-Me control panel just below your redirect numbers.
This simple yet powerful service enables you to answer your business calls on the most appropriate phone every time and ensures you never miss a call no matter where you are.
Unfortunately at the moment FollowME only works with the iPhone but our App Development team are working hard to ensure that it will be available on more devices soon.
