We are currently accepting beta testers for a program we refer to as “Phone to Slack” because, well… it routes text and voice telephony directly into Slack.
If you haven’t tried Slack, you should. It’s a great way to help your team keep in touch. It’s one of the few pieces of software that “just works.”
Answer Calls in Slack
At American Appworks, we’ve made Slack just a little bit better. Our Phone to Slack application can route calls from a phone number into Slack. There, team members can field the call by simply tapping the “Answer” button.
We route the phone call directly to whoever tapped the button. It’s kind of like magic.
Voicemail, Text Messages, and More!
If you miss the call, no worries! Phone to Slack routes the call to voicemail. Your team will see a link to the recording with a transcript of what was said. They can respond as soon as they’re able.
Additionally, your can route text messages according to rules of your choosing, enabling your team to respond to SMS inquiries from within Slack as well. You need to be where your customers are. If they want to use text messaging to communicate, then you either accommodate that or risk missing a sale. It used to be nearly impossible to handle text messages on a shared phone line. Our program makes it as simple as using a group chat.
Great for Small Business Phone Systems
We’re very excited about this new product, and the response so far has been quite positive.
We strive to keep the monthly fees low and charge only for the minutes and messages actually used. This pricing model makes our Phone to Slack program ideal for startups and small businesses.
