      • Thanks for choosing ABC Company Inc. Your call will be recorded for training purposes.
      • Press 1 to place an order

      These are normally the numbers which are different then the main store numbers. There are certain service providers who have same fallback number as the main store number, as well.

    • How long might it take for the forwarding to be set up?
    • For stores on various telephone service providers, their standard procedure for call forwarding activation is to be followed, some take a couple of hours while others may take a few days. At Bistro BPO, we normally prefer to activate on Mon, Tues, and Wed.
