CallGrader makes call tracking super simple

As the name suggests, CallGrader gives you a simple and easy to use call grading system that allows you to get real-time data on how well your campaign is performing. With CallGrader, you can finally definitive results as to whether or not your advertising is really paying off.

After signing up with CallGrader, you will sign up for a unique local phone number. For instance, if you want to track your Web, direct mail, and newspaper ads, you would sign up for three unique numbers, which will then be forwarded to your main business number. On each type of advertising you would use one number, per type, this way, when the calls come through CallGrader can help you track which method is producing the most successful results.

Additional uses

CallGrader is not only useful for finding out which advertising avenue works best, but also, as a training tool. You can assign unique phone number to different individuals and track their performance. Providing and tracking feedback has never been easier. By assigning each of your trainees a unique phone number, you will be able to record incoming phone calls and monitor the performance of your sales reps all in one location. Then, you can listen to the calls, “grade” them, and help trainees with exactly what they need.

I could also see this being a tool for freelancers. You could sign up for a single phone number, and use it to record conversations about jobs, details, and payment arrangements. This way, you would have a record of everything said, and when it was said, should you ever need to reference it*.
