Telephone Answering systems
After a stupid couple of hours fielding calls asking if we are open, I'm going to request we get an answering system. We have only one incoming line on our main number, so calling in absent can be a problem as well. So what I want is an answer machine connected to a spare direct line so we can give out that number for people to call regarding such matters.
We could get a cheap one that would probably do the job but I'm wondering if there are any low-cost systems that can be recommended. We have around 600 kids.
If I can program it as follows it would be great:
Press 1 if your wimpy little brat has the sniffles
Press 2 if you want to report your child ill but in reality you are taking a long weekend in your villa in Spain
Press 3 if your child refuses to get out of bed.
