1300 and 1800 numbers are fast becoming a 'must have' for businesses of all sizes. Apart from delivering a vast range of business benefits, they come with features and functions that other phone numbers simply can't match. We are the experts and one of Australia's leading providers of inbound numbers. Let us show you what a local call 13/1300 number or a toll free 1800 number can do for your business.
Inbound numbers come with many features and functions, all designed to help you manage your calls and create an outstanding caller experience. Use a combination of functions to make the number work for your business and stand out from your competitors.
Auto Attendant (also known as IVR) allows callers to select an option from the numeric keypad, which transfers the call directly to the option they have selected. It's a great solution for businesses with multiple departments. By skipping reception in the call transfer process, the feature can help relieve your reception staff and provide callers with quicker call wait times.
Call overflow is a feature that allows the call to be diverted to a different phone number if it's taking too long to be answered. The feature is a great way to ensure that every call gets attended to. It can also be paired with a Live Answering Service, where our call centre staff can answer on your behalf if you're unavailable to take the call.
A Voice2Email service is a feature that can be added to your inbound number, where calls are diverted to a message bank if you're not available to take the call. Unlike a standard message bank, the caller's message is sent to a designated email address as an mp3 file. It can then be easily forwarded to another recipient, or stored in the email inbox.
Time-based routing involves diverting calls to a designated phone number based on the time of day. It's the ideal solution for automatically routing after-hour calls and can be combined with either a Voice2Email or a Live Answering Service.
A business intro greeting is a recording that can be programmed to play at the start of every call. It can either be a stand-alone promotional message or combined with IVR prompts. The greeting can be recorded in-house or by a professional voice artist. It's a fantastic way to introduce your business to the caller and create a positive customer experience before the call has even started.
Geo-Routing enables calls to be diverted to a given number, depending on what location the call is coming from. This feature is a fantastic solution for businesses with multiple locations. The calls will be directed to the most relevant location, without the need for a receptionist to transfer.
Also known as Call Whisper, this function warns the recipient of the call that it's coming from the inbound number. A subtle voice message is played at the beginning of the call and can't be heard by the caller. Perfect for businesses that have multiple numbers or users that accept the 13-1300-1800 calls on the mobile and would like to differentiate between incoming calls.
This option distributes the inbound calls to a number of different answering points, depending on the pre-set ratio of available resources at different sites e.g. 60% of calls to be routed to one answering point, 40% of calls to be routed to another answering point.
Our range of inbound services are used by businesses and organisations of all sizes. From SOHO and small business operators to large enterprises and public organisations.
