Call Announce/Call Whisper is our most popular feature, it alerts you to a business call before being connected and will give you the option to be connected or let the caller go to voice mail. The caller listens to music as the system dials your phone. When you answer you hear "There is a call for (Your Name), press one to be connected or press two to send the caller to voice mail." If you can take the call press one and start talking. If you are not able to take the call press two or hang up and the system will ask the caller to leave a message. A major benefit to the Call Announce/Call Whisper is that your caller will not hear your personal cell phone voice mail or leave a message there! Your caller only hears your professional business outgoing greeting.
Callers can have the option to reach you or your staff in urgent situations (Callers with life threatening situations instructed to call 911). This module can have special call routing trying up to 6 different phones to reach a live person on your staff. Then if no one can take the call the system will take a message and start a Cascading Notification. The Cascade can include:
- SMS Text to up to 8 cell phones
- Voice Delivery - system will call up to 8 different phones
- Voice or digital pager
Repeat any option in the cascade with interval between steps.
