If the only thing you’re using your 1300 number or 1800 number for is to answer incoming calls, you’re missing out!
One of the major benefits of 1300 numbers and 1800 numbers is their powerful in-built reporting options. Call details such as who is calling, when they’re calling, where they’re calling from, and the length of each call can help you to measure the success of your different marketing campaigns and channels.
They ruled supreme in the 1960s and 70s, but these days, businesses tend to use fax machines less and less. They still come in useful at times, like when you need someone to send you a signed document. But the rest of the time they just take up office space, need their own landline, and use up your paper, toner and electricity (and sometimes, your patience).
Fax machines are so 20th century. What the modern office needs is a 21st century solution that allows you to send and receive faxes without the need for the physical machine and its associated running and maintenance costs.
That’s what Fax to Email (Fax2Email) services are all about.
Alltel has become an active supporter of ACCAN’s Fair Calls for All campaign. This campaign is aimed at getting the big three mobile carriers to provide calls to 1300 numbers, 13 numbers, 1800 numbers at the same rate as landlines.
ACCAN is the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network, so not surprisingly the initial focus of this campaign has been on the high cost paid by consumers to dial these numbers from mobiles.
More recently, they’ve also been looking into the impact that high mobile rates are having on the businesses that use 1300 numbers, 13 numbers and 1800 numbers.
