It lets you switch your carrier while retaining your old business phone numbers. This means you can skip the hassle of updating your site with the new contact numbers and notifying your clients.
By switching to Freshdesk Contact Center, you get access to powerful functionality like routing capabilities, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), voicemail transcription, intuitive call transfers, and much more.

Once the verification is complete, Freshdesk Contact Center will begin the porting process. Until the number is active with your new carrier, your phone service with your existing carrier will continue uninterrupted.
Use your existing number provided by another carrier without losing the functional benefits of Freshdesk Contact Center. With BYOC, you can retain your existing number and pricing benefits provided by the external carrier, while also getting access to Freshdesk Contact Center functionalities.
