Call Forwarding

Look more professional with a virtual business number

Use your existing landline or mobile to answer your business calls
Answer business calls anywhere with flexible call forwarding options

We include Call Forwarding with any Zintel virtual number.

What is Call Forwarding?

Forward your incoming 0800/0508 calls to any device

Our Call Forwarding gives you the flexibility to choose how and where to direct your incoming calls. When your customers call your business number, their call is automatically directed to your chosen answer point. You can choose from a range of numbers and locations, whether mobile or landline.

This means you never have to miss another call, whether you’re working from home, your office, or on the road. Call Forwarding means better service for your customers and more convenient call pickups for you and your team. We include Call Forwarding as a standard feature with all our phone plans.

Why use Call Forwarding?

and level up your customer service

Use your existing landline or mobile

As a part of the standard service we provide, Call Forwarding allows Zintel to send all the calls made to your Virtual Number to the device you choose. Browse our features pages to learn more about how call features can boost your business number.

Get creative with inbound calls

Answer business calls anywhere

With flexible Call Forwarding options, you can pick up enquiries from the office, at home, or on the road. Delight your customers by answering more calls faster.

Look like a respectful business

When you promote your 0800/0508 business number instead of your personal one, it gives your customers the right impression. You’re a professional business, and now you look like one.

Who uses Call Forwarding?

Everyone who has an Inbound Virtual Number

When I need to travel, Zintel sends all calls to my mobile instead of the office. That way, I don’t miss a single opportunity.

Ray Zintel Customer

Zintel Customer Case Study

Ray runs an IT company, and spends a lot of time travelling around New Zealand for business and leisure. But he missed a lot of calls, and sometimes his customers couldn’t reach him. He felt like he was always apologising to customers for the delay.

Now with an Zintel Virtual Number and Call Forwarding, all of Ray’s 0800 number calls come through to his mobile, which means he can take calls and service his clients from virtually anywhere. When Ray’s not available to take the calls, they automatically go to a Virtual Receptionist Service. This has transformed his company and the way he does business.
