Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from the free trial period?
By downloading the iReachm app, you get a free 15-day trial with a personal assistant helping you answering your calls and completing tasks.
After registering in the app, you’ll need to activate the assistance. Just call the number below:
**004* + 32 23 20 12 00#
From then on your assistant will handle your calls on weekdays between 8am and 7pm, when you can’t (or don’t want to) answer. Afterwards you will receive live feedback about your missed call!
After 15 days this automatically ends, and you can choose to continue working with the assistant (click here for our different formulas) or to reactivate your own voicemail.
How to stop the iReachm assistance?
It’s a pity! Please inform us on the reason of your wish to stop the trial. We’re eager to learn how we can improve our product.

What happens outside business hours? Is there still assistance?
During the trial your assistant will take your calls on weekdays from 8 am untill 7 pm. Outside these hours, your calls will be redirected to the iReachm voicemail. This is a standard voicemail that you can personalize by recording an audiofile with your message and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
As an iReachm customer, you can choose your hours of assistance, depending on your type of subscription. This can even be in the weekends and there’s also a 24/7 option!
How to change the way the Digital Assistant greets your callers?
Your assistant will pick up the phone with a standard greeting text such as “Hello, this is the personal assistant of … She/he’s currently not available, can I help you?”
This is very easy to adapt using the iReachm application. Therefore, go to Menu > Settings > My Profile > Customize Greeting Text. Here you can insert how you want your assistant to answer the phone.
What happens after the free trial?
By the end of the trialperiod, the assistance will automatically end. Your missed calls will be forwarded to the voicemail. One of our Business Kings or Queens will contact you in order to discuss your experience. Not convinced? No problem, you’ll deactivate the forwarding together.
You’re totally up for it? Great! Then this is the moment to analyze how to create a customized personal assistant, depending on your needs and desires. Make sure to take a look at our different subscriptions and options!
How do I change the way my assistant greets the callers?
Your assistant will pick up the phone with a standard greeting text such as “Hello, this is the personal assistant of … She/he’s currently not available, can I help you?” This is very easy to adapt using the iReachm application.
How do I share my contacts with my Digital Assistant?
To make sure your assistant correctly addresses your contacts, share them with her. This way you can also choose how she’s supposed to handle your calls and make a distinction between private and professional calls.
When you download the iReachm app, you’ll be asked to give acces to your contacts. Click OK to do so. If you missed this step, don’t worry, you can still share your contacts afterwards. Therefore, go to your Settings of your mobile phone. There, you’ll have a list of all your apps. Search for the iReachm app, and activate the option Allow iReachm access to “Contacts“.
Is the assistant a robot?
The personal assistant is a human being. Your calls are handled by a real, not a virtual person! However, we do make increasing use of combinations between the human and the virtual. For example, we make the human assistant smarter by giving them access to certain data such as contact details, calendars and so on. Within our Innovation Workshops we also do projects on AI, speech to text and much more!
When is the assistance active?
This depends on your subscription. During the free trial period and for the basic subscriptions, you’ll get assistance on weekdays from 8am untill 7pm. Outside this period, on the weekends at official holidays, your contacts will be redirected to the iReachm voicemail. This is a basic voicemail (“the person you are trying to reach is not available, please leave a message after the tone”). You can easily customize this by recording a voice message and send it to email@example.com
You also have the possibility to deactivate and activate the service in the iReachm app. Therefore, go to Menu > Settings > Service on/off. The marked hours represent when the assistance is active. Click on them to deactivate the service temporarily.
What happens if I reach the limit of my subscription?
Most of the subscriptions have a limit of a number of calls per month. We’ll inform you by e-mail whenever you reach this limit. Your service will stay active. If this happens three times in a month, your calls will be redirected to the voicemail. We’ll start to count your number of calls again by the start of a new month. If you happen to reach your limit month after month, will take the time to discuss if there’s another subscription that will beter suit your needs.
What about privacy?
We make every effort to protect your privacy. During your interaction with iReachm, you can share personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, address and telephone number, as well as company name, job title and other business data. This makes us able to identify you as an individual. These are your “personal data”.
We collect and use the personal data solely for the purpose for which the data was obtained. Your data can be used for orders or to maintain your account, but also to increase your involvement as a customer and to personalize the possibilities we offer you.
We do not share this personal information with third parties that would use it for direct marketing, unless you have given specific permission to do so.

Do I have to pay to use iReachm?
Yes, iReachm is a paying service. You can enjoy a free trial period, so you can test it out. Interested? Just download the iReachm app! At the end of the trial period you can choose to become a customer.
Does iReachm work on a landline?
Yes it does! The assistance can be activated on a landline. So your helpdesk, reception, customer service department, etc. can all enjoy it as well.
Please note we don’t do free trials on landlines, as the set up is more complex than with a mobile phone. Would you like more information about this topic? Call us on +32 2 320 23 51 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Does iReachm work abroad?
In most countries, it does! Just make sure your forwarding settings are correct. There are no roaming costs inside the EU but outside you can be faced with extra costs from your operator. If you’d like more information about this, feel free to send your questions to email@example.com
