(PRWEB UK) 6 August 2013
Moneypenny, the world’s largest telephone answering service company, is today announcing the launch of Penelope, the UK’s first complete call handling solution that transforms the way small businesses handle their calls.
Penelope gives businesses an unprecedented level of control over how they handle their office calls. Using an app, users decide where and how their calls ring. The result is, in the same way as your emails arrive on whichever devices suit you, your office calls do exactly the same. Instead of just ringing your office phone, they ring the handsets that suit you best; mobile, home phone, a colleague etc.
Penelope includes far more than just clever ways of routing your calls to you. In fact, it’s an entire phone system, a receptionist and a whole raft of other features that will dramatically change how small and medium business will handle their calls in the future. It even includes a Moneypenny PA, a real person to take calls if you can’t.
Amidst all the features is a surprisingly brilliant digital receptionist. 85% of business callers know the names of the people they wanted to speak to - why do we put receptionists in their way? Penelope uses Voice Recognition to listen to the caller request, matches it against the employees available, and directs the call to the correct person. It’s a process that puts Siri and the like to shame as it’s genuinely 100% accurate (courtesy of some covert human back up which the caller’s unaware of). Suffice to say, it’s patented.
Any business can use Penelope either by keeping their existing number, or choosing a new one from any UK region.
Ed Reeves, co-founder and director of Moneypenny and Penelope comments: “The stellar growth that Moneypenny has experienced is down to us listening to our customers and exceeding their expectations. Penelope is the direct result of customer feedback and we have worked tirelessly on its development.
“There are more than 3.6 million micro businesses in the UK who are struggling to stay in control of their calls, but feel that they cannot afford a good quality receptionist or answering service. Penelope meets this need, with an easy to use app that provides on-the-go support, when and where they need it the most.”
“All the effort involved in getting this product live has been totally eclipsed by its success, its popularity and the feedback from customers. We’ve combined great tech, people and a complete phone system and put it into the hands of small and medium businesses. Now they can work smarter, gain business and reduce costs.”
“We know from Moneypenny that professional and well managed call management is critical for business success. That is why we have built a bespoke solution for growing businesses. Every missed call means missed business; so with Penelope they can fast-track their success.”
Priced between £21 and £39, Penelope places advanced call routing functions, previously the sole preserve of large corporates, into the pockets of small and micro businesses. To find out more about Penelope, please call 0333 20 21 020 or visit http://www.penelope.co.uk.
