What is Call Blocking

Create boundaries for your time and phone line

Fed up with calls from salesmen who won’t accept “no” for an answer? Or customers and tyre-kickers who suck up your valuable time?

You’ll love our Call Blocking feature. Cut out unwanted calls to your business and get back time to serve your ideal customers. Block selected inbound calls to your virtual number from a range of sources.

Why use Call Blocking?

Restrict inappropriate sales people and nuisance customers

Get back valuable time

Identify who’s calling and only answer from trusted sources. You can block pest callers who waste your time. And stop salespeople from harassing you and your staff.

Smart geographic blocking

Stop callers from specific geographic locations, states or regions getting through. Focus on serving your ideal audience and customers and optimise your time and team’s efforts.

Restrictions by phone type

Because you don’t have to answer every call that comes in. Eliminate calls from a certain phone type to ensure the calls that you receive are qualified, so you can serve your top customers.

How does it work?

Prevent unwanted callers from reaching you

Who uses Call Blocking?

Reduce interruptions and focus on your priorities

My receptionist was constantly fielding calls relating to our previous business, wasting valuable time and causing annoyance on both sides. Call Blocking helped us to streamline our incoming calls and needs rather than dealing with the details of someone else’s.

Alison Zintel Customer

Zintel Customer Case Study

Business owner Alison was sick of getting unwanted calls. Three major service providers called her or her staff most days, even after she requested removal from their databases. It was stopping them from doing their jobs.

So Alison set up our Call Blocking service and restricted their numbers. The calls stopped immediately. It freed up her phone lines straight away. Now her staff can concentrate on doing their jobs. They can get back to selling Alison’s product – instead of being sold someone else’s.
