Interested in using the Workiz softphone? Yay!
You can answer any questions you might have right here, before getting started.
1-What is the Workiz softphone?
The Workiz softphone lets you call existing and prospective clients, and your employees from right inside your Workiz app.
2-Why does my service business need a softphone?
Your service business relies heavily on phone communication between your clients and techs. And many of the existing phone systems you may be using (landlines and cellphones) aren’t recording calls and automatically adding them to jobs.
Meaning, you might have no records of client/tech communication at the moment…..
With the new Workiz softphone, your calls will automatically be added to the correct jobs and clients, allowing you to keep excellent records, understand exactly what happened with each and every client, what services were offered, how your staff interacted with your client and more.
This gives you the correct context for every single client and job, allows you to look at the big picture, and take the appropriate actions in your business.
3.What are the costs associated?
About Workiz phone numbers:
