What is call tracking?
Call tracking is the process of attaching a unique phone number to a company’s marketing efforts. This allows a company to assess the ROI of various marketing initiatives and determine which ones drive the best results.

Manage Your Staff – Assess the quality of customer service your team is providing.
How does call tracking improve customer service?
Your team will provide better customer service when they get a head start on helping your customers. Your representatives can find out who is calling ahead of time from a whisper message or a pop up on the screen. A whisper message can provide information such as:
- Where the customer is calling from
- Which of your campaigns they called in from
- A customer’s account number
When your team knows who is calling and why, it can reduce your customer’s wait time by as much as 43%. This could also lower the cost of your call by as much as 35%.
A great feature to use in conjunction with analytics is call recording. Call recordings can be easily added to a report and linked to a recording of the call as it happened. Hearing how your sales and customer service representatives interact with customers will provide valuable insight that allows you to identify struggling reps and coach them to improve their performance.
How does ‘click-to-call’ work?
Dynamic Number Insertion (DNI) allows a prospect to connect to your business with one click. Unique call tracking phone numbers can be placed on your website or landing page to help you understand how visitors arrived to your page(s). With this method, call analytics tracks which campaign, keyword, app or search engine led the most customers to your site. Using dynamic number insertion can also help improve your overall SEO efforts.
What’s included in a call tracking report?
In a typical campaign, we track:
- Total number of calls made by phone number
- Call date, time
- Dialed number and campaign information
- Caller’s location (name, address, if available)
- Call duration
Do I need to install hardware or software?
By nature, call tracking is SaaS (Software as a Service) There’s no need to install hardware, or worry about upgrading your systems to get set up. As soon as you have the number you want, you can start using it in your marketing campaigns.
