2-Way Pager : Business Communications Solution

By: Anna Woodward

Communication services are the hub of any business. You and your business partners, and co-workers, need to be able to stay in touch with each other. One of the best, and most cost-effective options, can be to lease two-way alpha-numeric pagers. Two way alpha numeric pagers have the availability of nationwide paging and the bonus of lower costs to your business than a cell phone plan.

By leasing your pagers you are able to have 24/7 support and replacement options. This allows you to be rest assured that even though your employees may not take the best care of your pagers, the pagers are covered and can be replaced in the event of unintentional damage. Also, by choosing to lease your pagers rather than buy them outright, you are able to upgrade when new models come onto the marketplace.

One of the best two way pagers on the market today is a two way alphanumeric pager with nationwide two way paging and internet capabilities. It is small and easy to use with its full QWERTY keyboard.

With these types of two-way pagers, you can send and receive internet e-mail virtually anytime, anywhere. With nationwide coverage, a local telephone number (or an 800 number), and an internet e-mail address, the two way pager provides a low-cost framework for creating a dynamic, online community that goes where you go. You will be able to connect to the internet to check weather, sports scores and news from anywhere in the United States.

If you own a small business and would like the option of having your own secretary without the hassle of hiring one, you can use an operator dispatch service to handle your calls. It is a cheaper option than a traditional answering service. It allows your customers to call your dispatcher, and they will page you with the message your caller gives to them. This service generally runs below $20.00 a month and can be a much more cost effective option than hiring your own staff or using a traditional answering service which will easily cost your business twice that amount per month.

Another option available with many two way pagers is voice mail. This gives your callers the option of either paging you or leaving you a voice mail message you can call in and listen to.

This advanced two-way pager is available for about $200 new or under $60 for a refurbished model. They can be leased for an even better price and with less risk to your business if they are damaged by your employees. Nationwide two way paging plans generally start at about $15 per month and go up from there depending on how many messages you require per month.

Two way alpha numeric pagers can be a perfect alternative to a cell phone when you need to keep in touch but do not need the abilities afforded to you by a cell phone. By leasing your two way pagers you can help to save your business money and also insure you can upgrade to the latest models when they are released into the marketplace.
