The conversation around Zaplee involves around a lot of jargon that many small-to-medium sized business owners don’t understand. The easiest way to put it is that Zaplee functions as the receptionist you can’t yet afford. The hard way to put it is that it’s a Cloud-Based PBX Application built on Asterisk that integrates with Skype, Google Voice, and SIP (we’ll get into the details of these in a later post).
Here’s the best way to put it: Zaplee is an affordable, internet-based application (meaning it integrates with your existing technology – you don’t need to buy or install any new hardware or software) that helps you do 3 main things:
1) Set up a local or toll-free/800 number for your company
2) Set up a professional-sounding voice system for your company (so when they call this number, they are prompted to select a department, or employee, and then transferred directly to that person or voice mailbox)
3) Have these calls automatically routed to anyone in the world. They can answer them from their computer, if they’re running Skype or Google Voice, or from a phone. Smart email notifications send voicemails directly to your email if you want, so you don’t need to be at a physical phone to pick them up.
Most importantly, Zaplee is a solution. It solves the problem of connecting with your customers in a way that projects your brand’s vision. It’s extremely affordable, with pricing starting at just $10 per month per user, and it can be set up in less than 10 minutes – by YOU!
