PizzaCloud: Ditch the norm and never miss a phone order again

Upsell messages, on-hold messages and high-speed cellular data backup are just a few features of PizzaCloud’s telephone and Internet service for pizza shops.




 

One of the most commonly ignored parts of a pizza operator’s business are the basic communication services—specifically, telephone and Internet service. Yet for any carryout/delivery-based business, these together carry virtually all orders to the store. How often do we hear, “I HATE my phones” or “My Internet goes out all the time, and I miss web orders and cannot run credit cards”? Plus, of course, there’s the issue of busy signals. A busy signal is like locking your door in the middle of the day.

The solution? PizzaCloud has a two-part service: 

First—the IP phone service. The base package includes up to six phones, a fax and/or EFAX connection and 10 phone lines. Yes, 10 lines is more than you need, but that is the point: In the busiest hour of the busiest day of the year, no one will get busy signals.

The second service is the high-speed 4G/LTE cellular data backup. They install an additional router with a built-in cellular data modem. When your Internet service goes down, the backup kicks in and keeps the phones, web order flow and credit card processing all working. Without this, any VoIP service is risky.

Other features of the phone system include start-of-call upsell messages, such as, “Thanks for calling Bob’s Pizza. Add some cheesy breadsticks today!”; on-hold music/messages; call recording; auto answering (If not answered in a few rings, the system can pick up instead of  a “Please hold—thankyouforcallingpleasehold—sorry about that, where were we?” message; detailed reports on time to answer, lost calls etc.; and special services and reports for multi-location operators, including centralized call centers.

PizzaCloud works to ensure you get the maximum benefit from the system. Their support team will talk through your needs and set everything up for you. Most customers who use the start-of-call messages to promote add-on items see a $350 to $750 increase in revenue just on those items.

The folks at PizzaCloud answer their phones 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (and they really do answer—you don’t have to rely on a voicemail box and hope someone calls you back). And PizzaCloud does not charge for tech support or moves/adds/changes. They will even search for good numbers for your new locations and hold them for up to a year at no charge!

PizzaCloud’s base package is just $155.00 per month plus hardware (and it can be leased to eliminate upfront cost).
