Your Gen Y employees will love this–and so will the rest of us. Gen Y has a notorious aversion to face-to-face interaction. I suppose it’s natural, given the role that Instant Messaging and E-mail have played. And from what I can tell, the phone is the worst. Don’t get me wrong, they’ll call their friends and talk for days. In the workplace, e-mail is the preferred choice and telephone correspondence seems to be a real inconvenience. Especially if, and I shudder to say it, someone actually picked up when you called. Horror! Well now there’s a solution for this serious problem.
SlyDial lets you call a mobile phone and go directly to voicemail. You’ll never again have to worry that a voice on the other end of the line might pick up and expect you to talk. It’s a remarkably easy tool to use. The only down side is the long-distance call you’re required to make.
Your stealth voicemail is just two steps away:
1. Call Slydial (267-Sly-Dial or 267-759-3425).
2. When prompted, enter the phone number where you want to leave your message. Remember, it works for mobile lines only.
