Rely on voice alerts to connect at scale

The more important a notification is, the more it matters that every person on your list gets the message reliably. You’ll see strong delivery rates with outbound voice alerts as customers will be less likely to miss the notification among other channels.

Enhance customer experiences with a personal touch

Create links with your customers beyond the call. Personalize your notifications by adding names into calls, using audio messages from a familiar voice, and sending over customer questions to a person (not a robot). Building voice alerts with our API saves time while keeping relationships feel human.

Model voice calls to your desired sound

Go over the hurdle of customizing voice calls for your audience. Without any telecom expertise, you can set up outbound voice notifications using Voice API features such as text-to-speech (TTS), interactive voice response (IVR), answering machine detection, or playing your audio recording on calls. Combine as many features as you want to make a voice experience best suited to your customers.

Send out alerts not too early, not too late

Make connections in context. Because 90% of customers are more likely to do business with a company that sends reminders, you can boost customer relationships by delivering important alerts with the correct timing. Send your real-time voice calls near appointments and delivery arrivals using our API. Customers can also playback a pre-recorded voicemail, so your message isn’t lost within their notifications.
