What is Simultaneous Ring ?

Work as a team to capture every opportunity

Simultaneous Ring routes your calls to several different phones at the same time. If someone picks up, all phones stop ringing. This feature is a special type of call forwarding that connects all your phones. Our clients love using Simultaneous Ring for the convenience.

Even if you’re not at your desk, you can pick up the call from another location. Or a team member can take the call from their desk. It’s a flexible tool that helps you answer more calls faster.

Why use Simultaneous Ring?

Serve your customers better by improving response times

Answer all customer calls faster

Choose up to ten phones that ring simultaneously. Send calls to your landline, mobile or colleagues. Every call gets answered faster, whether you’re at your desk or not.

Provide your best customer service

Reduce wait times for customers. Simultaneous Ring usually results in a pickup within seconds. This shows customers they’re a priority to your business.

Work as a cohesive team

Make more sales and capture each opportunity by streamlining how your phones ring. And because the first to pick up gets the call, this can motivate sales teams to answer faster.

How does it work?

Get more out of your virtual number with up to ten answering points

Who uses Simultaneous Ring?

Businesses that aren’t tied to their desks

Zintel allows me to better manage my team, evenly distribute calls amongst the sales reps, and streamline our call handling process. Very happy with the service.

Jon Sales Manager

Zintel Customer Case Study

Jon is an operations manager in the FMCG industry. He has eight salespeople in his team in Auckland and all enquiries come through to a 0800 number. These calls are usually about product restocking and need a quick response.

Jon uses our Simultaneous Ring feature to divert 0800 calls to all eight of his salespeople’s phones at the same time. Whoever picks up the call first makes the sale. This motivates Jon’s team to answer calls quickly, so his customers get great service. And if one or two salespeople are unavailable to take a call, someone else on the team can step in. This means fewer missed calls and happier customers.
