Tell us about ComedyCures®.
The ComedyCures Foundation is a charitable, non-profit organization that brings therapeutic laughter and entertainment to the ill and underserved throughout the world. We work with professional comedians producing local, national, and international events and digital programs.
How did you start working with Phone.com?
We wanted to provide people the ability to reach clean comedy at any time, from anywhere. We came up with the free, 24/7 LaughLine® concept with an appropriate fun number 1-888-HA-HA-HA-HA (1-888-424-2424) for patients of all ages, parents, caregivers…really anyone who might need a laugh. The idea is to hear professional comedians – names like Zach Galifianakis, Amy Schumer, Mike Birbiglia & more – who want to get their family-friendly jokes to those who need them. We also wanted everyday people to be able to easily share their favorite jokes, funny material, and laughter. We researched telephone services out there and chose Phone.com. Little did we know how helpful the phone service would turn out to be!
Which Phone.com features help the most?
We wanted callers from all over the world to be able to both hear a joke and/or leave a joke for a stranger in need. Phone.com’s best-in-class IVR services provided custom submenus and the ability to load MP3 files into their content management system. We review the Caller Analytics feature to keep an eye on call volume and caller details. Phone.com’s customer service team was our partner in all of this and they made it so easy.
We get callers from all 50 states and now internationally. We are thrilled with how easy it is to make so many people happy. We share the joy of laughter with people that need it. Phone.com is so great to work with!
