Differentiate between business and personal calls with Call Whisper

We have a lot of customers who use their personal phones for business as well as personal use. Something we get asked a lot is how to tell if an incoming call is from your business number or not. We understand for startups and small businesses keeping up a professional image is essential for building those customer relationships, which is why we offer our Call Whisper feature for businesses in this situation.

Definitely needs Call Whisper

Call Whisper is an add on feature to your virtual number, playing a short message letting you know the call is for your business. The message is personalized to you, for example, “Incoming call for Jakes Plumbing”. Only you will hear the message, the caller will just hear the standard ring tone. This gives you the opportunity to answer the phone professionally and set the right impression for your business from the off.

You can have Call Whisper set up so you have the option to either accept the call or forward it to your business voicemail. This is ideal if you aren’t in a suitable environment to take a business call and sound professional. For example, if you work around loud machinery or are simply just too busy to take the call right there, you can forward to voicemail and return the call at your earliest convenience. Alternatively, you could forward the call to another member of staff on duty.

There you have a simple way to differentiate between business and personal calls with Call Whisper without having multiple phones or expensive setups. Just £3pm+VAT, no hidden costs or long contracts.
