A cost-effective solution to ensure customer calls are directed to the right destination based on the caller’s postcode.
Speed plus accuracy equals great customer service
With more and more inbound calls coming from mobile phones, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact location of a call. Postcode prompting provides the perfect solution. By getting the caller to enter their postcode, you can give them the local service they’re after. This is especially useful if that location is somewhere different to where the caller is currently located.
How it works
When a consumer calls your inbound number, they’ll hear a voice prompt asking them to enter their four-digit postcode. If they’re unable to enter their postcode the call will be routed to an operator of your choosing – so you never miss a call. Upon entering their postcode or speaking with an operator, the caller is connected straight to your designated business premises for that postcode.
Ideal for multi-location franchises
Our postcode prompting solution is perfectly suited to large franchises who can’t afford to miss a call, but who may have other regional challenges such as a large number of stores in a small footprint.
Postcode prompting simplifies the customer journey, builds brand integrity and delivers immediate accurate results at a low cost.
Fonebox can also incorporate postcode prompting into a custom routing solution, ensuring callers are sent to the correct endpoint in your network every time.
Postcode prompting in action
No more lost leadsLiz was finding that she was getting more and more calls from her franchisees, complaining they weren’t getting leads. That changed when she started using Fonebox’s postcode prompting system. Many of her outlets share the same region, but Fonebox’s nation-wide auto mapping system ensures callers go through to the store nearest them, or undesignated postcodes are shared equally. Either way, franchisees are happy, and customers are getting what they want sooner.
Give customers the freedom to chooseFrustration is the last thing you want your customers to experience when they call your business, but that’s what was happening to Gareth’s customers. When they entered their postcode, they were randomly assigned to one of the roadside assistance teams in the area – but not necessarily the one they wanted. So Gareth gave callers the ability to choose which outlet they wanted to speak to. With Fonebox he can assign three different locations to each postcode. Now callers get straight through to the branch they want, without the run-around.
