How-To: Get a 'heads up' with Call Whisper

How-to /

Our Call Whisper service plays a short voice message to you (the receiver of the call) before connecting the caller with you. This will help you quickly identify whether you're receiving a business or personal call so you can answer with the appropriate company greeting.

You don't need any extra hardware, our systems do the work for you and it will work with any handset.

  • Know which of your TTNC numbers has been dialled when you answer the call
  • Give a great first impression by answering your calls in the most appropriate manner
  • Only you hear the whisper message, so the caller is unaware it's being played
  • Great for people with multiple virtual numbers, or who use the same phone for both business and personal calls
