Why use Play Announcements?

Automate your initial greeting
and give your customers faster results

Friendly and professional

Our welcome greetings act a bit like a receptionist. They help your customers get where they want to be faster. In fact, if your regular receptionist needs to go on leave you can activate a recorded greeting and routing menu while they’re gone.

Get creative with inbound calls

Several customisable options

Your greetings might include welcome messages, routing menus, service outage information or special campaigns. Help educate customers on your products, services, available times, departments and more – all before you answer the phone.

Streamline your processes

Make it easier for your customers to connect with the help they need. It’s more efficient for your customers and your staff. And everyone gets the same consistent brand message every time they call.

Suzy S Zintel Customer

Zintel Customer Case Study

Suzy runs a florist store. She gets a lot of enquiries over the phone, but some of them are for a completely unrelated service. She realised that another company had a similar 0508/0800 number and their customers were misdialling.

So Suzy set up our Welcome Message feature. She uses it to announce her business name to callers. Since getting set up, Suzy receives almost no enquiries for the other business. Nearly all callers are potential customers asking about floristry. Her productivity has increased, and she can focus more on growing her business and serving her customers.
