It’s a hectic time of year and as thoughts turn to the long awaited Christmas break, it’s important to take five minutes to make sure you’ve done all those last minute jobs before closing for the festive break. We’ve put together a handy guide of everything you need to get in place.
Change your email footer
Our email signatures make any business stand out with professional, branded email signatures on all devices. Add a festive twist to your signatures and add crucial information your customers will need over the break, such as your opening times.
Pre-record a “welcome back” message”
New year is a great marketing opportunity, and so it’s a good idea to record a fresh welcome back music and info on hold message.
Check your service and maintenance
What happens if your IT or telecoms go down over the holidays? Digicomm customers know that they have total cover, even on Christmas Day with our fantastic service and maintenance Maintenance and Support – Digicomm 360. You never know when you might need back up, but with Digicomm on your side it doesn’t have to be a headache.
Don’t forget your customers!
Once you have your own business covered, make sure your customers know how they can get hold of your team should they need them over the break – you can include this in your recorded message Information on Hold – Digicomm 360 and your email footer Email Footers – Digicomm 360. You could also divert your phones to ensure someone always picks up.
Take Christmas decorations down for a fresh start in January
It might seem odd, but it means that you’ll return to the office without the distraction of a dusty Christmas tree and prevent those back to work blues!
Empty the office fridge
You don’t want to come back to moldy turkey butties! While you are at it, you might want to look at a local office fruit delivery service for a healthy start to 2022.
Plan work for the first week back
Make sure you and the team have work scheduled for the first few days back so you can hit the ground running . If you’re not already using Microsoft teams, now is a great time to start.
