In this article, you will learn how to use call masking to monitor your field techs and protect your client’s and tech’s personal phone numbers.
What is call masking?
Call masking is a Workiz Phone feature that provides your techs and clients with a greater degree of privacy by preventing both parties from seeing any actual phone numbers. This allows you to override the caller ID to only show your clients the number you want them to see — like your business phone number.
And because your techs will never see your client's phone number, call masking is also designed to ensure that your business’s clients remain your business’s clients.
This feature also allows you to record calls that take place between your techs and clients, enabling you to monitor calls and improve your customer service. All calls between your clients and techs will be saved under the relevant job and client page.
