Fastcall is compatible with Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE9+. However, if using the softphone, the latest version of Chrome is best. Fastcall works on Macs, PCs and ChromeOS. Fastcall does not support Android, IOS and does not have a SF1 app.
Fastcall recommends the latest version of Chrome for the softphone. You must also allow the browser to access the soft phone when prompted before your first call. The softphone requires a strong, preferably wired Internet connection and a high-quality, noise--cancelling headset. See here for more info on the softphone.
Yes, Twilio is required. Fastcall gives you the option to add Twilio as the telecom connection to our app. With Twilio you can drop voice mails, record calls, control caller ID and more. Example: make calls using your office phone and show your mobile number as caller ID.
By default, Twilio supports calling from/to the US & Canada. Outside the US and Canada you must enable international dialing permissions on your Twilio account (more info here.)
Fastcall will place a phone icon next to phone number on any Salesforce object; custom or native.
Calls are logged as a Task for all standard and custom objects that have Activities enabled. Calls made on an open Task will close the Task; calls made to a closed Task will overwrite it. (More info.)
Yes. Fastcall logs calls on the Task and you can create any reporting using Tasks and associated objects. You can also use Call Score to create custom reports.
Fastcall keeps these settings under "Call Logging." Add / edit / sort call results, setup call score, update lead status after a call and more.
Fastcall has three types of phone numbers. First is caller ID - which is required by Twilio. You can have 1 caller ID for all users - or each user can set caller ID in her Fastcall User tab. You may also use a Twilio assigned number as caller ID. The second type of number is a user phone used for click to call. These phones are devices. The third number is the number we are calling.
No, you can also just hang up your phone. Using the Fastcall application will make it easier to set a Call Disposition and/or edit the call Task record.
Fastcall creates a Task for each call attempt and creates records for calls in a custom object. Tasks and calls count against your Salesforce storage limits. Fastcall uses almost no Salesforce API.
Fastcall enables the update via capability settings. We access your org via standard Salesforce support.
Installation and cancellation are managed 100% inside Salesforce. And there are a few steps required for both. First, cancel the subscription in the AppExchange. NOTE: Salesforce will not let you uninstall an application with an active subscription; and removing users from the application is not the same as cancelling the subscription.
No. Twilio does have an option to route calls to your SIP phones, but Twilio is still required. Twilio provides telecom as a phone application platform and API. Fastcall is entirely software and Salesforce native. Twilio gives Fastcall the tools to write our applications.
Our base application is a call logger. This "No Dial" mode will log and score your calls, just not dial. Our app is added as an Open CTI call center file in Salesforce to easily create a Task with call duration, call result, notes, call type and more. Our Call Score captures call count, total call duration, average call duration, days since first call, days since last call and more. Fastcall provides great phone sales reporting data and works along with your existing phone as an add-on to log and score calls. We can also auto-update lead status after a call.
You can edit a Salesforce record while on a call if using click-to-call with an office or mobile phone; you can also edit the Salesforce record using Salesforce console. Salesforce Open CTI does not allow users to edit a record while using a softphone. Editing the browser will end your call using the Fastcall softphone outside Console.
