Route calls to improve efficiency and customer satisfaction

  • Route calls based on day or time, and offer weekend coverage so you don't need to keep all locations open
  • Support regionalized call handling such as in-language call answering by routing calls based on phone number
  • Recognize and route calls so you can offer personalized VIP treatment or route customers with billing issues directly to collections
  • Distribute calls on a percentage-of-coverage basis to support load-balancing during lunch hours, illness, inclement weather and emergencies
  • Design and store up to five alternate routing plans, which can cover special or recurring events and emergency situations. Routing plans serve as scripts for coordinating the interaction of other toll-free features, so that you can transfer calls and trigger announcements based on specific sets of circumstances. Activate alterative plans by just making a phone call.

Direct callers with helpful announcements

IP Toll-Free enables friendly, professionally-recorded announcements to:

  • help callers reach the right destination
  • keep callers informed of call status, wait times, etc. via pre-recorded courtesy announcements

SIP features such as Transfer and Redirect provide for the transfer of callers to alternate locations, inside or outside your business.
