Zintel Customer Case Study

Rob is a busy dentist in a small town. But even busy dentists need to take a day off. When Rob goes fishing, his Virtual Receptionist takes care of all his calls.

That way, if a patient calls about an emergency, he’ll get notified about it via SMS so he can assess the situation from wherever he is. But if he gets any routine calls or bookings, he can go back to fishing with minimal interruption.
