An easy and affordable solution that helps you – and your customers – connect when you set up temporary locations.
Communication may have moved firmly into the digital age – with emails, text messages and social-media updates now the norm – but, when it comes to the ways in which customers connect with businesses and business owners (and vice versa), a phone call remains the simplest and most immediate way to ask a question, book an appointment or provide feedback.
Having a way for your customers to reach you by phone can sometimes be challenging, though – especially if you typically set up temporary locations and you’d rather not have your cell phone ringing non-stop while you’re on the job.
If you operate an on-the-move business and are looking for an affordable solution, Rogers Wireless Business Phone is ideal for you.
Rogers Wireless Business Phone is a portable, plug-and-go, fully featured communication solution that lets you make and take calls on a standard (analogue corded or cordless) telephone wherever there’s an available electrical outlet or power source, and a cellular signal on the Rogers wireless network.
No need to have a technician set it up – you can easily do it yourself (see below for instructions). And with Wireless Business Phone, you’ll get all the features you need, including unlimited Canada-wide calling1, enhanced voicemail, call waiting, call forwarding2, caller ID and conference calling.
Perfect If You Have An Office, But You Work Remotely
Let’s say you’re a contractor, landscaper, tradesperson, caterer or run any kind of business that finds you working remotely instead of in your company’s office, at your desk, each day. By taking Rogers Wireless Business Phone with you, you can stay in touch with your suppliers, clients and colleagues without having calls directed to your cell phone, potentially interrupting your workflow.
When your Wireless Business Phone rings, you’ll know instantly that it’s a business-related call – which means you (or someone on your team) can answer professionally, your cell phone can remain on “silent,” and you don’t ever need to provide your personal number to customers. You can take your Wireless Business Phone with you, then just unplug it at the end of the day and take it with you when you leave.
Ideal If You Operate Your Business Out Of A Temporary Location
Maybe you spend your days running a food truck, a pop-up specialty store or a kiosk in a shopping mall, or perhaps you’re a business owner who’ll be spending some time travelling to trade shows and conferences where you’ll need to set up a temporary “office.” With Rogers Wireless Business Phone, you’ve got a cost-effective and easy-to-use phone solution that goes where you go.
No need to set up costly land lines each time you relocate, to use your cell phone for business calls, or to be stuck renting equipment and using whatever carrier a shopping-mall landlord might require in a leased space. With Wireless Business Phone, you’re always connected, and you can rest easy knowing you’re doing so via the reliable Rogers wireless network.
How does it all work? Rogers Wireless Business Phone couldn’t be simpler to use:
1. Purchase a portable Rogers Wireless Business Phone device for $39.99, and select a monthly, no-term, no-contract plan.
2. Put a SIM card into the Wireless Business Phone device, and then attach a phone (e.g., a cordless analogue telephone).
3. Plug the Wireless Business Phone device into an electrical outlet or power source. No phone jack is required.
4. Turn the device on. You’re done!
In just four easy steps, you’re ready to start making and taking calls using your Rogers Wireless Business Phone. And you – and your location-based business – are then always reachable by anyone who needs to connect with you.
