What is Call Screening?

Phone communication is a crucial part of running a business, and being available to help legitimate callers is a huge component of that. However, when your phone lines are constantly ringing with spam calls, it takes away time from your valued callers.

Untimely calls can also cost your business in terms of productivity, with each phone unnecessarily interrupting your workflow.

Yodel is able to help stop unwanted calls, without losing the calls that matter.

How does a Call Screener work?

Yodel is able to automatically answer your phone calls, and find out the reason for the call. Caller intent will be automatically transcribed so that you and your team can easily find out the purpose of the call before being connected.

From there, you can decide to pick up the call, route it to the most relevant team member, decline it, or send it to voicemail.

A call screener helps you know the purpose of an incoming phone call, helping you to decide the best way to handle it. You can automatically screen spam callers and irrelevant misdials out.

With automatic call screening, your team is able to save time without having to spend resources weeding out calls on your own. Instead, let your business phone system do the work for you!

Stop paying for a service that doesn’t give you everything you want, and start using Yodel today.
