What is call masking?
Call Masking is the ability for the techs to call the client without seeing the client’s phone number. When it comes to calling the clients there are three options:
- Turning of contact altogether. So it means that when the tech has an issue of some sort, they call the office and the office calls the client.
- The second option is to allow the techs free reign to call the client. And so in the mobile app, they would see the client’s phone number and call. The tech can see the client’s phone number and the client can also see the tech’s phone number and they can communicate freely.
- The third option is call masking. This allows your techs to call the client without the tech being able to see the client’s number. The client can also call the tech without being able to see the tech’s number. This reduces the chance of the tech calling the customer outside of the company. And that is what call masking is used for.
