Make a Statement with a 1800 Number
1800 numbers are an excellent way to make a great impression and fully engage your customers. Being a toll free number, they're free to call from any Australian phone line. A 1800 number is an excellent addition to most business marketing campaigns and ongoing promotional activities, ensuring maximum response rates and generating more inbound calls.
Remove Barriers and Create an Outstanding Customer Experience
Unlike a standard landline, 1800 numbers aren't restricted to a local phone exchange and can be used Australia-wide. That means you only need one number for your business, regardless of the number of locations you have. They're also fully portable, so there's no need to change numbers if you move premises or expand your business.
Being completely free for customers to call, 1800 numbers can help create an exceptional caller experience. You can use a toll free number to provide free over-the-phone consultations or customer assistance. They're a cost effective way to provide seamless communication between you and the caller.

Auto Attendant (IVR)
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 unable to take the call.
Voice 2 Email
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.
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.
Business Intro Greeting
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 messaged 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.
