Question about small Call Center style setup


I am very new to this and was wondering if its even possible or if the tools even exist. The idea or goal was that few people who help with our service all have skype and wondering if such service or software is out there that would allow a client to call the number, then it would forward to a Skype number, rather than having a list a skype numbers and telling the client to email us or Phone the List of number until you get someone.

You can use something like Kall8 where it will forward to multiple phone numbers and whoever picks up first gets the call, or call through a series of phone numbers trying to get someone to answer. If there's no answer for any of the lines it just goes to voicemail.

Isn't that still in beta or by invitation only?

Most of the google things are beta anyways. It is indeed a invite only thing, but you can enroll for one at https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googlevoiceinvite/

Am not sure if those that have a Google voice can give a personal invite - tried this link https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googlevoiceinvite/

Guess I'll just have to wait till they roll it out.

Thanks Guys..

Kall8 would seem like a good option, if I'm understanding your needs correctly.

I was very surprised when I logged into my google email account and saw my google voice invite to my Google Voice account which came on 10/15/09 now am looking forward to playing with this new toy and see how I can make it useful in how I use my phone services.
