Inbound calls to your virtual number can be answered by a personalised greeting message. We provide a number of pre-recorded messages for you to choose from, or alternaitvely you can upload your own. This is an easy way to make your business appear more professional.

If you need more advanced call routing then you can easily configure complex call distribution within our online portal. This allows you to route your calls to multiple destination, either in-sequence or simultaneously within your organisation.

You can intelligently route calls depending on the time-of-day or day-of-week. This is ideal if you need to change your working hours at short notice, or simply provide your customers with a professional experience if they call when you are closed.
