4 Dec 2019 in

Call us biased, but we can’t help but revel in the enormous power that phone calls unleash upon businesses.

Not only are they firmly embedded in consumers lives in the form of smartphones, but they can also:

  • Offer better service to your customer base
  • Convert high value orders
  • Entice customers to try additional services or products
  • Increase loyalty with customers

But, we realise we’ve got a vested interest in making such statements. We’re not the leading Call Intelligence providers for nothing.

So, we’ll let the facts of the phone call’s undeniable power speak for themselves.

Here are 10 top phone stats to prove their undeniable value to your business.
