What do franchises need from a business phone system?

When operating a franchise, you need to support the parent franchise company’s brand standards and image while also driving growth and revenue at your franchise location. Constant communication with employees at both your franchise and the corporate office is key to your success, so you’ll need a robust business phone service to help you at every step of the way.

No matter what your franchise’s speciality, keeping your customers happy is essential. You’ll need a business phone system that can effectively greet customers, route calls to the proper destination, and provide basic information like location and business hours. You’ll also need to be able to easily communicate with other franchises in your company.

Finding a powerful and flexible business phone service that juggles all of those requirements is essential to your success as a franchise.

Ooma Business testimonials.

U.S. Retail

U.S. Retail is a franchisee of Pet Supplies Plus with 41 stores across 6 states. We are moving up to about 200 Ooma lines. We need to be able to take calls from customers, vendors, partners, suppliers and want everyone on one platform even when geographically diverse. The value of Ooma is the cost savings, and also time as well; no managing multiple carriers and providers.
