Phone Tree

Almost all organizations should have some type of phone tree. The goal of a phone tree is to quickly and easily disperse important information. This can be done via manual or automated outbound phone calls and/or inbound phone calls.

Sigma Voice provides easy-to-use inbound and outbound phone tree applications.

What is a Phone Tree?

An outbound phone tree is a network of people with phone numbers.

The list designates that certain people are responsible for contacting certain people so the message is delivered by phone as quickly and efficiently as possible.

These people must be contacted quickly in case of emergency or other important events.

An inbound phone tree or phone menu is a local or toll-free phone number that provides information to callers. 

If there are multiple sets of information, callers can use the phone keypad to get the information most relevant to them.

Phone Tree Example

It starts with just 1 person. That person calls 2 people. Those 2 people call 2 people and so on.

More and more organizations have moved the Phone Tree list to an online cloud-based system like Google Docs or Google Sheets.

This way the changes can be reflected instantly to all users without the need to email the new version of the file.

Also, the most up-to-date version is always in one place.
