Your Telephone Answering Service Can Send Your Messages to Your Pager

Pagers are used by a wide range of businesses for many reasons:  emergency notifications, messaging on call personnel, communicating among internal employees.  Having your telephone answering service dispatch your messages to your pager rather than, or in addition to, your cell phone or office phone is a great idea.

Pager networks tend to be more reliable for receiving messages.  Often their networks do not become as congested as cell phone networks.  This is of particular interest when planning communications in a weather event or other situation when can disable cell phone networks or bog them down with traffic.

Pagers services can be used in hospitals and other places where other mobile devices are prohibited.

Pagers can provide a low cost solution to receiving messages from your telephone answering service.  Pagers can also be a helpful tool for controlling large groups needing the same message.  Your telephone answering service can dispatch the message to what is called a group pager number, and that group pager number can in turn forward the message to any number of pagers within that same group.

Pagers are an ideal back up plan too.  Imagine you are in a cell phone “dead” spot.  Your answering service is trying to dispatch a message to you.  You’re going to miss out on it.  But, having the message sent to your pager gives you a better chance that you won’t miss out.

The major types of pagers are numeric only where you receive numbers only;  one-way alpha-numeric pagers allow you to receive text messages of limited length;  and two-way alpha-numeric pagers allow you to receive and send text messages.

Be sure to check the coverage areas when selecting a pager to be sure you are getting the coverage you need.

So, next time you are wondering where to have your telephone answering service dispatch your messages to, think about adding a pager to that message dispatch strategy, just to be sure you don’t miss those important calls.
