  • Native dialing and voicemail options mean no extra software to disrupt normal workflows
  • Simultaneous and sequential ring options enable better service by minimizing calls going to voicemail
  • A cloud-based Auto Receptionist voice response service routes calls quickly to wherever your employees are working
  • Universal Outbound Number ID for every employee displays company information for better brand recognition
  • An easy-to-use web portal allows for simple configuration and control features such as voicemail and corporate directories
