One of our most popular extra features is the “call whisper” feature. We believe it is such a great feature that we offer our customers a free 30 day trial when they order an 0800, 0845, 0844 or local number with us. Why do we like it so much?
Well, all of our numbers are pointed to an existing landline or mobile phone number. So, when somebody calls you, you don’t know if they are phoning your existing landline or mobile number as a personal call, or if they are phoning your local or non-geographic number as a business call. The type of call you are receiving can obviously change the way in which you answer the call.
Some people may have more than one company, and may want to point different numbers for different companies to the same phone for convenience. The problem with doing that is that they don’t know which company the person on the end of the phone is calling, and so don’t know how to answer it.
A third problem can be having multiple local numbers pointed to the same phone, and then not knowing which area you are meant to be in because you don’t know which local number has been called.
Call Whisper is the solution to all of these problems. When you receive a call to your 0800, 0844, local or 0845 number, you will hear a short recorded message when you answer the call to let you know which number is being called. The caller just hears the continuing ringing tone. You then know how to answer the phone call.
You can add a whisper for each number, and the whisper can be customised to say whatever you would like it to say.
