Direct Inward Dialing (DID) numbers are virtual phone numbers (also known as SIP trunk numbers) that enable you to route calls to your existing telephone lines. DID numbers are used to assign direct numbers to specific members in the team, without the need of multiple physical telephone lines. They are phone numbers with intelligence that can help you manage calls the way you want to.
The simplest way that businesses make use of DID numbers in India, is to route incoming customer calls. When a customer calls the business, they hear an IVR greeting that asks them who they want to speak to and forwards their call to the right agent based on their inputs.
DID numbers makes it easier for business to monitor the calls for performance analysis – track the number of calls missed, the turnaround time of an agent, time spent on call and customer call recordings.
All the calls are routed via a DID number (s) and kept track of. Use this information to resolve disputes and confusions in customer conversations, easily.

A DID number or virtual number is a phone number that does not have a direct phone line associated with it. Using a DID number in India, you can route calls to one or many physical phone numbers (landline or mobile numbers). To put it simply, it is a number on the cloud that requires no equipment to get started.
With Exotel, DID numbers or Exophones can work in two ways:
1. Get a virtual number and use the system: Here, the customer signs up for an Exotel account, gets a virtual telephone number, and publishes this on his website.
2. Use your existing number and forward calls to the DID number: Quite often, customers want to keep their personal numbers as the customer-facing number. In such cases, the user can use their own phone number as the customer-facing number and then forward all calls to the virtual number.
Because of the following advantages:
1. Provide a personalised customer experience.
2. Get unlimited call handling facility.
3. Achieve efficiency due to less call drops.
4. Build a professional image and be available even after the business hours.
