From Telephone to Telephony, a Hello is a Constant!
How rarely do you come across a conversation that doesn’t start with hello?
‘Hey’, ‘hello’, ‘hi’, ‘hola’, ‘ciao’, ‘salut!’
Same words, same emotions, just different languages.
Be it an interview, a romantic date or a business conversation between a client and a company – no interaction can begin without this word.
This World Hello Day, let’s dive deep into the history of this word.
‘Hello’ as a peace symbol
A word as small as ‘Hello’ was considered a great tool to bring world peace during wars. It was believed that a simple message if conveyed right, holds a lot of power.
This belief gave birth to World Hello Day.
Hello is just a start to a conversation. But what really helps the conversation flow?
The Rise of Smart Communication Channels
As witnessed in Game of Thrones, ravens were used to send across messages in the past. Soon, mankind was introduced to a device called telephone, because of which people would eventually stand in long queues to make a single (and very expensive) STD calls. Not much after that, mobile phones came into existence and initiated the evolution of different ‘smart’ channels of communication like Cloud Telephony.
However, all these devices served the same purpose – ensure a smooth, barrier-free communication. What is the first thing you look for when you want to talk to a business? A business phone number. (Because let’s face it, we all hate email as much as White Walkers)
Why is Cloud telephony required by Businesses?
