YouMail Features & Benefits:
Pundits claim phone calls are dead, but time-starved entrepreneurs and consumers would disagree. These folks live and die by phone calls from clients, colleagues, and prospects, but their time is extremely limited. The innovative YouMail app serves as an automated virtual receptionist, letting busy people improve productivity by blocking robocalls, effectively managing their calls and messages, and even enabling truly effortless, free conference calls.
Stop robocalls from reaching you
YouMail saves time by stopping robocallers from calling in the first place. YouMail’s original algorithm reliably identifies robocallers by dynamically analyzing traffic patterns of calls to YouMail users and uniquely playing an “out of service” message, which stops them from trying to call again. Most other call blocker solutions let robocallers leave voice messages, which doesn’t solve the problem. By using YouMail to stop robocalls and prioritize legitimate callers, smartphone users can avoid timewasting scammers.
YouMail has also led the consumer fight to stop robocalls with the YouMail Robocall Index™, the US’s first comprehensive guide that measures and compiles the scope of the nation’s worst robocalling hotspots. YouMail uses algorithms to detect any automatically dialed calls, and then aggregates that calling data to create the Robocall Index. Users can also report spam numbers, allowing for a crowdsourced directory.
YouMail has blocked an estimated 500 million robocalls since last year. The FCC’s Robocall Strike Force cited data from the YouMail Robocall Index in its “Final Report,” further emphasizing how YouMail is leading the telecom industry in its battle against robocalls.
Voicemail app features save you time
YouMail increases both productivity and caller satisfaction by greeting callers by name; routing callers to other people who can handle them; taking, transcribing and routing messages; and instantly replying to callers with YouMail’s “auto-reply” feature. Auto-replies drive users to custom mobile landing pages that expose callers to alternative communication channels like email and provide them with ways to take further action like getting more information, making appointments, and even completing a sale.
YouMail data shows that 93% of subscribers save 3-5 hours a week through improved management of phone calls and voicemails.
Free conference calling, too
In addition, YouMail provides free conference calls, saving both time and frustration. Every user gets a conference line associated with their mobile number. Users simply have to dial their colleague’s number and press “8” to join a conference call. YouMail’s Smart Summary feature also sends all participants a summary of the call.
YouMail’s groundbreaking app helps busy people manage voice messages, simplify conference calls, and stop robocalls with its highly accurate Smart Blocking technology. As the only app on the market that manages voicemail and blocks robocallers, it’s a critical productivity tool for entrepreneurs and consumers.
