Smart IVR for Support

Smart IVR is an effortless way for self-serve support, conducting feedback, or collecting surveys over a call. It helps you to create a personal and intuitive on-call experience.

SMS for Updates

SMS is one of the simplest ways of communication. Using Exotel you can send bulk SMS campaigns in a few clicks just by adding a list of contacts. You can also personalise a text message according to your brand using a custom Sender ID.

How government entities have leveraged our solutions

In the past, we’ve impacted the lives of millions of Indians by helping multiple government bodies directly or indirectly in their outreach especially when it comes to disaster management. You can read a few stories below.

Setting up COVID-19 helpline numbers

Exotel helped setup COVID helplines in Tamilnadu, Maharashtra, and Goa. These helpline numbers were widely circulated in the states to ensure people can gain easy access to help. Within a few days, we were able to assist thousands of people by powering these helpline numbers.

Assisting Rescue efforts for the Chennai and Kerala floods

During the floods in Chennai and Kerala, the traditional phone lines went down. Rescue operations were hampered because of this. It was becoming impossible for people in the affected areas to reach out for help. We pitched in with disaster management in both these places. We helped set up high-availability support centers in several locations to assist volunteers with their rescue efforts.

How does pricing work for the voice calls?

Exotel charges voice calls on a per-leg basis:

1. Inbound Calls - An Inbound call is a single-legged call ~ When a call lands on a customer-facing number, Exotel dials an agent number to connect the customer’s call.

2. Outbound calls - An Outbound call is a double-legged call ~ When an agent calls customer, Exotel first dials agent number and then dials the customer number to connect them over a virtual number.

How long does it take to set up a call management software?

A cloud call management software can be set up anywhere between 2 to 3 hours. In fact, we helped Zerodha set up their call management system within 3 hours.

How is a hosted contact centre software different from a traditional PBX or EPABX?

Compared to a traditional PBX system, the cloud telephony system allows you to pay for what you use, broadly through plans that suit business requirements or scale. Enterprises can talk to us (link below) for custom configurations to help large-scale teams engage better, or to support a host of use cases. All you need to get started with cloud telephony is a computer and internet connection.

Can I remove my business number from Truecaller's Spam list if I sign up for its Verified Business Caller ID?

The Verified Business Caller ID solution is not a spam removal solution rather is a brand

identity solution to ensure better identification, branding, and context to improve calling efficiency. It also helps prevent identity theft by scammers. The overall aim is to improve customer confidence and not to whitelist spam numbers. Crossing the spam threshold that is visible through an additional spam score tag on incoming call screens doesn't limit all the features offered as part of the solution.

How to choose the best OTP service provider in India?

Choosing a reliable OTP service provider in India is the key to implement a robust authentication system. Below are some of the important factors to consider:

1. Delivery and Latency Rates: Always choose a provider that can assure you of better OTP delivery rates and lower latency rates.​

2. Flexible APIs: If you are implementing an OTP authentication system using APIs, then make sure that your OTP service provider’s APIs are flexible and easy to implement in your backend systems.

3. Data Security: Your customers’ data should be your number one priority. Always choose a provider that is ISO certified and exercises enterprise-grade security practices.

4. Scalability: Always choose a provider that can quickly scale up or down according to your business needs.

How does SMS API work?

The SMS API is a HTTP based REST API which allows you to trigger SMSes using actions/buttons at your internal application. An SMS API is something like a code that allows communication between one platform to another. Think of it as a friendship between two people, a bond is created and then knowledge or information is shared.
