If none of the calls are answered, indicating that you are not available, the call will be routed to voicemail, where the caller can leave a message.
- Call Screening – By delivering the caller ID, you can, instantly, choose how you would like to route the call. If it’s your best friend, inviting you to a golf tournament, for instance, you can route the call to your mobile phone. On the other hand, if it’s a salesperson, you do not wish to speak with, you can send the call to voicemail, or simply disconnect it.
- Automated Attendant – This VoIP feature is one of the most popular, with clients worldwide. Not only do you free up your employees, to perform other duties, rather than answering the phone, it allows the caller to choose from a menu of options and the call is routed, automatically, to the appropriate extension.
