We used to use a traditional PBX system before. But that doesn’t have the capabilities of Exotel’s IVR system. So, we decided to use Exotel for our IVR cancellation system.

What is a softphone?


A VoIP Softphone is software that enables you to make & receive voice calls over the internet from any internet-enabled device such as a desktop, laptop, mobile phone or tablet.

What is voip
Cloud VoIP phone system

Softphones can be installed and used on any device. The primary screen has a dial pad, just like a telephone, offering an easy-to-use interface to make and receive calls. Softphones offer high mobility and are assigned to a user rather than a piece of hardware, meaning, your agents can access their softphone from any device, anywhere. All they need is a good internet connection to get started.

How does it work?


A VoIP Softphone works just like a telephone, except the call is routed over the internet and can be initiated & received from multiple devices.


Install the softphone application on your computing device, be it PC, Mac, tablet or mobile phone. You can use it from your browser too. At Exotel, we recommend LinPhone, a popular open-source softphone application.

Use LinPhone to make/receive calls and a wide range of other purposes from any device!

Why does my business need a VoIP softphone?

Given the need for contact centre agents, sales and service personnel to work remotely today, it is nearly impossible for them to be at a desk attached to a telephone line to speak to customers. Moreover, they might not have telephone connectivity either. In situations like this, VoIP softphones allow them to make calls via the internet from any computing device. They can call anyone over WiFi, even if they do not get a good enough mobile signal in the area.


What training do agents need to use a VoIP softphone?

Nothing at all. A VoIP softphone looks just like a regular phone with a dialler, call accept/reject buttons etc. It is intuitive, and agents pick up almost instantly.
