Zaplee is a company switchboard. Whether you’re a large or small company, you will have to take incoming calls from your customers. Zaplee allows you to set up a switchboard so that you can have multiple customers calling in at the same time, and based on what need the customer selects, he will be routed automatically to the right employee as soon as the employee is available to take calls.

What is the per-minute charge for dialing out? Why should I use Zaplee for this?
The per-minute charge can vary depending on the country being called. In the US, it is 2.3c per minute. The benefit to you is that your customers see your company number’s switchboard on their caller ID, and will not need to remember your company’s phone number to call you back – it’s already in their phone when you call them. In addition, you don’t need to show them your personal home or cellphone number, allowing you to keep business separate without needing to carry two phones.
