PSTN and Mobile Calling
Calls to local, national, mobile, and international telephone numbers from each extension. (International calls are billed additionally from standard plans)
Call all other extensions in your company using the local extension number.
Virtual Switchboard (Auto Attendant)
The virtual switchboard can be configured to answer all calls before routing them to the required extension. Personalize your own recordings to tailor the virtual switchboard to your requirements.
Create Ring/hunt groups and map extensions to one or all of the 3 stages. Each stage can be configured to different ringing lengths in seconds. The final stage allows you to redirect the call to a PSTN/Mobile number, hunt group, shared mailbox, or auto attendant.
Hot Desking allows you to go to another PBX VoIP phone in your customer's domain, dial a special code number and after authentication, your calls will be directed to that phone. Outbound calls will be identified as your extension and not the phone you are Hot Desking from.
The "barge" PBX functionality feature allows designated extension(s) to intercept another extension user's call and talk to both parties. The "listen" feature allows designated extension(s) to tap into an existing call and listen to the call. The "teach" feature allows designated extension(s) to tap into an existing call, listen to the call, and speak with the extension user without being heard by the other party.
