No business wants to miss out on new opportunities or frustrate their existing customers by not answering the phone; but, sometimes it happens.
Missed Call Alert can help you cut down the time it takes for you to respond to missed calls and make you more aware of the calls you seem to be missing through the alerts you'll receive.
- Get an alert in 15 seconds for any calls you miss
- We'll send you an email including the caller's details and why the call was missed
- You can quickly call the customer back to avoid losing any business and to give great customer service
How does Missed Call Alert work?
- The unfortunate happens and you can't take a call.
- Within 15 seconds of you missing that call you'll know about it.
- You can receive an email and/or a SMS alert giving you the caller's number (if it's available) and the reason for missing the call.

Reasons for missing calls
There are a few reasons why you might be missing calls. We'll show you the reason that you missed the call as well the caller's number in your alert. The reason could be:
- Caller hung up whilst your number was ringing.
- Caller hung up during your greeting message (if you have one).
- The carrier we're forwarding to didn't accept the call.
Please note: due to the Data Protection Act, we're unable to display withheld numbers.
If you decide you want SMS alerts sent to you as well as, or instead of the emails, each SMS will cost you 12p. This can be deducted from your call credit or you can set up an entirely separate balance for it. Buying a block of SMS credits brings down the price of each SMS.
