ZipLaunch

A ZipLaunch number is a dedicated phone number on your account used to launch your calls.  Any authorized individual just dials the number from their Contact List or Desk Phone followed by the Group Code and the appropriate Group is called and bridged with the original caller as they answer.  The ZipLaunch number for your account can be found under Settings.

How It Works

The first thing you do is set up a ZipLaunch Code with each Group when you setup the Group as illustrated in the icon to the right.  Dial the ZipLaunch number under Settings followed by the ZipLaunch Code you assign to launch the call for any given Group.

Best Practices

We recommend entering each Group you might call as an entry in your Contact List.  Enter the ZL number followed by 3 pauses and the Group Code. It will look like the icon to the right.  Then when it is time to launch, just tap or voice dial the contact and wait for the members to join.  We recommend you leave the CallerID for the Group as the default number of 469.249.3777 and advise potential members to add that number to their contacts with a custom ring tone.  Then when they receive a ZipBridge call they will know it is urgent and needs to be answered.

Pricing

You can add a ZipLaunch phone number to any ZipBridge Plan for an additional $99 per year.  Or you can select the Emerg-A-Call Plan which includes a ZipLaunch phone number and is intended for companies who only want to use ZipBridge as a way for people to dial-in to launch a conference call to a single Group. More information can be found on the Plans and Pricing page here.
