Text-to-Speech Sandbox Tool Now Available

DialButler.com offers toll-free number forwarding with custom messages (“Thanks for calling!” or “We’re close right now, send an email”) that can either be uploaded OR converted from text-to-speech. This enables our customers to quickly modify messaging without re-recording messages manually. Dial Butler launched a new text-to-speech tool for our customers to enable editing and fine-tuning messages for their Dial Butler toll-free numbers before making them live.

In effort to enable agile experiences for our customers, Dial Butler has offered text-to-speech for menu messaging (along with eight different voices to choose from). Using our text-to-speech menu tool, customers can modify the messages their callers hear when they dial their Dial Butler toll-free number without having to manually record messages or pay for voice talent to manually record messages. This is a great way to insert adhoc messages to get the word out about promotional events, let callers know about sudden business closures due to weather, and keep a low-overhead on your customer service infrastructure.

Launching today, all Dial Butler customers now have access to our new text-to-speech sandbox tool. This tool enables you to listen to your toll-free configuration messages before saving them so that you know what they sound like and how long they are before they’re exposed to your callers. Tweak the wording and compare the eight voice options available to find the perfect sound for your callers. Here’s a quick video demo of how simple it is to use!

We hope you enjoy this new feature which is available to everyone at no additional cost. As always, we want your feedback on what other tools and features you’d like to see. Reach out via social media (@DialButler) and let’s chat!

Top Reasons to Claim an 800 Number for Your Business

It’s as much marketing as it is utility. Toll-free numbers are an effective, easy-to-implement tactic for both building your brand while also improving the service your provide to your customers. Here are some of the top reasons it’s a smart move to claim a toll-free forwarding number today:

  1. Expand your customer base. Separate yourself from being a just local business to a business with nationwide scope. For example, if you operate a drone repair service in Colorado, a toll-free number on your website and social media build a stronger image of your business for customers coast-to-coast, not just your local Coloradans.
  2. Enable scale and growth. If your business spans multiple locations or perhaps exists entirely virtually, a toll-free number is a great way to funnel your customers through a single channel and standardize both the customer experience and the business processes behind those experiences. Your number stays with you as you expand.
  3. Flexibility. With Dial Butler toll-free forwarding services, you control when you number rings, what messages are played, what menus are available, and many other aspects of the caller experience. Forward your toll-free number to different numbers at different times or even forward your toll-free number to your cell phone. This gives you the flexibility to deliver the customer experiences your customers desire without breaking your back to deliver them.
  4. Add prestige. Toll-free numbers, while more common, generate a higher level of confidence in consumers. Sharing a toll-free number with your customers may lead to better conversion as it builds a sense of trust with your business.
  5. Last, but not least, there’s no contact, no setup fees, and no commitment when you claim your toll-free number through DialButler.com.
