Phone Bridge ( Call Blaze)

Introduction

Phone bridge is basically used for tracking and storing all the phone calls made directly into our CRM. This enables the tracking of calls in real-time and directly updating that to the CRM. By enabling this channel we can directly track all the calls made from your phone, such as the duration of the call, how many calls came both inbound and outbound, and how many chats are missed. About all of this we can have detailed information stored with us. The system automatically logs all call records in the phone call logs, providing a comprehensive record of communication activities within the CRM platform.

For example, In an Organisation, the follow up action is very important so by enabling our Phone Bridge feature we will be able to track the calls of all the agents and we will have complete information about the number of calls made, the duration of the call, calls received,missed calls all these can be tracked and thus we can make sure that the agents are following up all the calls and thus we can make sure that all the leads are followed up and thus no opportunity will be wasted for the organization.
