When you call a large company, it is a dread to listen and follow through all those phone menu instructions (“press 1 for English”, “press 2 for Spanish”, etc). Fonolo is a handy web service that lets you skip the phone menu instructions and connects you directly to your desired extension. Instead of listening to the instructions you can visually scan the phone menu and click the spot you need to call.
