Concurrently, PRIDE Travel announced a new automated system to route its incoming toll-free USA and Canada calls to the recently launched 888-748-9876 number. The simple main menu exist of only two levels, the first announcing options to callers, and the second connecting them to the appropriate number or voicemail depending on the time of their call. The toll-free automated system will work in concert with the direct-dial number of 562-432-3888 seamlessly and callers will receive the same options. “Our goal is to keep our phone system simple, but functional to properly and quickly route our clients to the right place where our vacation experts can assist them” said S. Nathan DePetris, the company’s Chief Operations Officer in charge of the day to day operations, adding that initial field tests with clients and industry partners helped fine-tune the telephone system into its simple final product. The toll free automated system will work in concert with PRIDE Travel’s enhanced online and social media presence to better connect clients, both present and future, to the company.
