Portland, Maine (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
With 80% of people that are sent to voice mail hanging up (Fortune 2006) and the number of freelancers in the US now totaling 45 million, Main Virtual Office has introduced the lowest priced telephone answering service in the market, specifically targeted to freelancers and solopreneurs. One man companies that continue to rely on voice mail are committing suicide says Jim Plunkett of Main Virtual Office. We have designed our small business answering service so that it is not only affordable for solopreneurs but also has the functionality they need.
The face of the nations work force is changing dramatically with many predicting that freelancers and independent workers will comprise 50% of the US work force by 2020. Increasingly, these new independent contractors and freelancers are mobile and require mobile functionality. Main Virtual Office's answering service and mobile app allows these solopreneurs to acces and view their messages from their mobile devices, much like they do their email. It also allows them to update their availability to receive a transferred call, in real time.
With end of the 134 year old public telephone network approaching, the new voice over internet (VOIP) telephone network has spawned a new generation of telephone answering services. Voice over internet protocol or VOIP combines voice, Internet and mobile all on the same network allowing these new answering service companies to provide functionality not before possible with systems built on top of the 134 year old legacy public telephone network.
Plunkett says Main Virtual Office took advantage of this to also develop and introduce a new business model that allows them to use the new technology platform to optimize "efficient call handling" and offer the lowest priced service in the industry.
