What are call notifications?

Call notifications use caller ID to alert you when an important contact calls your company’s phone system. This feature emails you whenever selected phone numbers call your business lines.

These alerts contain information about a caller and a timestamp. Receive notifications based on the phone number of the caller ID, not the name.

For instance, you might want to add a person’s home phone, cell phone, and office phone numbers separately. The next time they call, you’ll know.

Call notification benefits

Knowing when incoming calls reach your business line can be critical to your operations. Notifications allow you to follow up on inbound calls when you are available.

Popular uses of Call Notify include:

  • VIP notifications — Be notified whenever a high-value customer or prospect calls your company. It’s a great way to provide white-glove care without any extra effort.

  • Dedicated callback line — If someone is too busy for a live call, can they dial a specific number enabled with Call Notify, and you can have your staff reach them after they call.

  • Holiday schedule on-call notifications — After hours or on holidays, incoming calls alert your team and can be reviewed later.

Pros and cons of call notifications

Advantages

Receive an email notification with all the information about a caller such as their phone number, name, time and date of when they called, and the phone number they dialed.
