At the heart of the FonGenie service is the ability for business owners to customize how telephone calls are answered to boost sales and profits, via an easy to use web interface to manage greetings and menus heard by callers with timely and relevant daily specials or offers, incentives and discounts. In fact, according to FonGenie’s data captured and analyzed by Vincent Mudrak, VP, Operations and his team at FonGenie, up to 35 percent of callers introduced to daily specials when calling a business have accepted an offer. For many businesses currently utilizing FonGenie, this has resulted in sales increases of over 25%.

In addition, Caller ID 2.0 included with FonGenie provides real-time business intelligence and analytics on all incoming calls, such as who is calling, where they are calling from, their reason for the call, what menus have been listened to and engaged, their specific call history and behavior – all before your phone actually rings.
