Provide a cohesive phone experience for customers
In a distributed business model, it’s essential that as a franchised brand, you manage your customer’s call experience – whether they are existing customers contacting the specific business with questions or potential customers who would like to engage your services or purchase your products. With Delacon’s call tracking and management solution you can automatically route calls around your network and collect data on the calls to further optimize marketing campaigns.
Using Delacon’s call routing you can send incoming calls to the specific franchise nearest to your customer. When your customer rings a toll free number, international number or local landline, they can be greeted with a custom message asking them to enter their postcode. Our system will then transfer the incoming call to the closest business.
And with our call tracking solution, you can attribute inbound call inquiries to specific marketing initiatives to more accurately optimize your advertising spend. The call recording and call feedback functionality let’s you monitor all leads generated for the business.
Apart from franchise businesses, our solutions would suit retail chains with more than one location, manufacturing companies who want to boost sales by having one simple number that directs consumers to their closest stockist, after care service organizations who want to connect consumers to their local registered technical support agent.
Zip Code Routing
Delacon’s franchise solutions uses a state of the art proprietary zip code routing platform to ensure calls to toll free or local numbers are directed to your nearest outlet. There are two zip code routing options available.
1. Delacon’s store locator prompts callers to enter their zip code and be routed to their nearest franchise.
2. Delacon’s store locator automatically picks up the state, city and exchange, or cell tower that the caller is calling from. Calls are then automatically transferred through to the franchise closest to the caller.
If a particular franchise is closed or busy on another call, the call can be automatically forwarded to a central call centre or the next closest franchise. This means all callers get to speak to a sales representative.
Cell Tower Routing
Delacon’s call tracking technology can route cell phone callers based on the cell tower handling the call and divert them to the closest store. This is ideal for franchises and geographically dispersed businesses with multiple branches.
The data from the call can also be used to divert the caller based on for example the ISP, phone type (Android or iPhone) and more. For example, incoming calls from Telephone Provider A can be routed to call center X, calls from Telephone Provider B can be routed to call center Y and calls from Telephone Provider C can be routed to call center Z. Each call center will have staff trained specifically to deal with the types of inquiries from users of each provider.
By using dynamic call tracking numbers, franchises can track incoming calls, analyze the data and optimize campaigns to ensure maximum return on investment. Through Delacon’s reporting system, you can identify the:
- Caller’s phone number (where available)
- Time and date of the call
- The call outcome (answered/busy/not answered)
- Whether a voicemail was left by the caller and if so, the voicemail will be attached as a .wav file
- The full referrer URL related to that call.
All calls can be recorded and saved in .wav format and stored on a secure, user-friendly web interface making them accessible at any time. Alternatively they can be emailed directly to a team member for review.
