In order to retain callers and reduce their frustration when lines are busy, a Call Queue can be used. Calls are queued within the carrier network rather than on your phone system and lines, meaning that you don’t need expensive surplus lines on site to handle call volumes that only occur during peak periods. With network Call Queueing you have unlimited line capacity.

The conference service enables users to build a call conference in seconds, with customised audio announcements.

Conference calls can also be call recorded.

A Hunt Group can cycle a call through all available lines until someone picks up (and can be set to cycle through different destination numbers at different times of day).
Another option within a Hunt Group, this service allows up to seven different destination numbers (landline or mobile) to ring at the same time until the call is answered. This is a cloud based service offering phone system-like functionality over a wide area, so is not restricted to a single location, as in a phone system.
An option within a Hunt Group, incoming calls can be routed to a pre-defined list of locations on a percentage share basis, allowing for call distribution to be weighted across multiple sites.
This service can transfer a call internally or from one type of line to another (landline to mobile for example).
