WP Phone is the “go to” system for managing calls that come into your website. Wp Phone allows you to get unique phone numbers for your website and then setup call flow systems using a simple drag and drop interface. You can set up automated voice response systems, capture and check voicemails, place calls, setup phone menu system, filter out callers and much more.
WP Phone works by leveraging and integrating IVR Designer’s system which allows users to build out call flow systems. You will need to register an account on www.ivrdesigner.com in order to use this plugin, you can register an account using the plugin or on their site directly.
