Kall8 Additional Features
As well as toll free numbers and the features mentioned above, there is more to Kall8. Here is some more information on their additional features:
Information emails: Each time someone calls your Kall8 number, you will receive an email notification. The email will include the caller’s ID, the number the call was rerouted to, the date and time the call was made, and the length of the call. You can receive all of this information even if you don’t record your calls.
Voicemail: Each time you send a call to voicemail, you can receive the recorded message in your email as a .wav file. As well as regular calls, you can also send blocked calls to voicemail. You can easily set the number of rings before a call is sent to voicemail and calls will be sent there without your phone ringing first so that you won’t be disturbed.
Conference calls: Kall8 voice conferencing allows you to communicate with up to ten people at any time, for any call duration. You can set up a conference call whenever you like, without having to schedule it in advance.
Follow me service: This service enables you to instantly redirect your calls, wherever you are. Whether you want calls directed to specific personnel or your office, car, cell phone or hotel room, you won’t miss a call.
Vanity numbers: A vanity number is a toll free number which incorporates an easy-to-remember sequence of numbers, which will help your customers to recall your business number. For example, you’ve probably heard of 1-800-FLOWERS or 1-800-TAXICAB, which are two of the most famous examples.
