Making Outbound Calls

You can use your Halloo service to place outbound calls. There are many reasons why you might do this:

  • Consolidate your long distance expenses by having all of your work-at-home team members use Halloo to make outbound calls.
  • Show your Halloo Caller-ID rather than your private home or mobile phone number when you call out.
  • Use the Halloo address book and Call Control Panel to quickly dial the people you want to reach.
  • Set up multi-party conference calls.
