1. Get a virtual number and use the system: In this case, the customer signs up for an Exotel account and gets a virtual phone number. Later, he/she creates an IVR flow and publishes the same number as their customer-facing number.

Process: Sign up for an Exotel Account > Log into the system > Get a virtual number > Create an IVR flow > Publish the number on the website

2. Use your existing number and forward calls to the virtual number: Quite often, customers want to keep their personal numbers as the customer-facing number. In such cases, all the calls to your personal number can be forwarded to our virtual number.

Process: Sign up for an Exotel Account > Log into the system > Get a virtual number > Forward all calls from customer-facing number to virtual number > Create an IVR flow > Publish the number on the website.
