Drowning in Robocalls

We've all gotten a dreaded "robocall." A robocall is an unsolicited call dialed by a computer. When you pick up, you may hear a prerecorded message or be transferred to a live person to complete the sale.

North Point Motors, a Saab, Volvo and Subaru repair shop in Winston-Salem, was at their wit's end with robocalls. Because North Point Motors is a small family-owned shop, their time is valuable. Every time the phone rang, their employees had to stop what they are doing to take the call. Unfortunately, 15-20 times a day, those calls were solicitors. The automated calls were so excessive that North Point Motors considered changing their phone number. TelWare knew that changing your phone number would result in lost business and should only be done as the absolute last resort. North Point Motors has aided one of our sales members, Doyle Blalock, with his "Saab problem" for over 20 years. When Doyle heard about the solicitation calls, he knew it was his turn to help North Point Motors.

A Simple Solution

To address the problem, we upgraded their system to TelWare Hosted SIP. This new, simple-to-use phone system included a wireless phone, mobile apps, and most importantly, an auto attendant. When calls go to the auto attendant, the robocalls don't know what button to press to speak to someone, so the call is terminated. This results in less distributions for the staff. Now, they only get calls from new and potential customers.

Rick Hudspeth, owner of North Point Motors, says, "It did exactly as we were hoping! We have not received a robocall in two weeks since it was installed. Any small business that gets bombarded with robocalls and solicitation calls needs to get this system."

Solving Problems

We knew that North Point Motors wanted a wireless phone so they could take calls anywhere in the shop. Using our Hosted SIP phone app, they now get calls directly to their mobiles. When the internet went down in a recent storm, North Point Motors was able to continue getting business calls using the phone app. IMG_0566.jpg
