Custom branded conference calls for the ultimate first impression

Personalisation is the word of the moment. In all things, we are leaning into individualism. People are increasingly comfortable with, even encouraged to embrace, the things that make them unique. And in turn, they want the things they have to be unique. Likewise, as markets become saturated and competitive, protecting and promoting your company’s brand is imperative.

Do first impressions matter?

It might be somewhat of a tired truism to say that you don’t get a second chance at a first impression. But that doesn’t make it any less vital – particularly for businesses.

The past couple of decades have seen more inventions than any age. Speed of development is constantly accelerating, as innovations and ideas build on each other. But this also means we abandon more technology more quickly. As the newest thing is unveiled, it often replaces what came before. Devices and techniques fall to the wayside. With the plethora of communication technology available, will voice calls become obsolete?

Is there cause for concern that voice calls will become obsolete?

Communications technology and fashion – more connected than you think

We all remember the tremendous boom of the Blackberry. In the noughties, it followed flip phones and spy-esque miniature laptops like the LG Vx9900 which fuelled the trend for QWERTY keyboards and helped secure Blackberry’s place as the *it* phone. Celebrities were constantly spotted with them. Even the President of the most powerful country in the world, Barack Obama, publically pledged his allegiance to Blackberry.
