6) Why it is important to summarize the outcomes of a telephone conversation before ending a call. * Because if you have been talking to someone for a while and especially if you are discussing various options or topics. It is very possible that you could lose track of what was decided or agreed. Summarizing the outcome of the telephone call helps overcome this. Also if you are taking down a list of items or a name, address and telephone number. Summarizing this helps reduce the possibility of mistakes, i.e. wrong address or telephone number. 7) How to follow your organization's procedures when making a receiving calls. Making phone calls * To make an internal call, press the button that corresponds to the office you wish to call. These buttons are the 12 rectangular buttons at the top of the phone. They are labelled with the place they will call. You will probably only ever need to call Rosemary (in her office) or Suzanne (in the training office). * To make external calls, lift the receiver then press "Line 3" or "9" to phone out on the secondary line (the one used for sending faxes). Then dial the phone number you want to call like you would on a normal telephone. * If the secondary line is busy and you can press "Line 1" to phone out on the main phone line. ...read more.


Voicemail: This enables a person to leave a message for a caller whom can listen to this and then if need be, leave his or her own message. ii. Answering machines: This also enables a person to leave a message for a caller whom can listen to this and then if need be, leave his or her own message, except that the message is more generalised. iii. 1571: This is an answering service which for a small amount of money can be customised with a personal message by the account holder. This can be useful for small business which can quickly check messages that have been left, as well as the number of callers who rung but did not leave a message. iv. Answering Services: These are organisations that will receive calls and take messages and then provide a daily summary. Which they will either fax or e-mail to their clients. v. Paper Messages: These are the traditional method of recording and delivering messages, left by a caller. When the person for whom the person is meant is away, or otherwise engaged. They may be written on onto a printed form and covers the relevant facts that need to be included. Or they can be put on a form on your computer and printed out. 15). Why it is important to keep your message system up to date. * Because there is no point in having a message system unless the messages are checked and dealt with regularly, otherwise you might miss something urgent or important. ?? ?? ?? ??
