Companies are being asked to reduce the burden on employees and improve the work environment.
As the need for companies to take countermeasures against nuisance calls continues to grow so as not to disrupt business operations, Basix provides a function to reject incoming calls in order to meet the needs of customers who only want to answer calls that are truly necessary. was doing. However, it was burdensome to operate as users had to manually register each number one by one.

Through this collaboration, nuisance phone numbers can be automatically and instantly identified and the source of the call will be displayed on the screen, without the need for manual registration by company personnel. You can also set it so that incoming calls from nuisance calls are not displayed on the screen.
This feature allows users to answer only those calls that are truly necessary, contributing to increased work efficiency.
