What is it?
The Speech Enabled Automated Attendant answers incoming
calls and transfers them to the appropriate extensions. And
it does it automatically. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Calls
are answered promptly, courteously and professionally without
the intervention of a live operator. In fact, the Speech
Enabled Automated Attendant can even be configured using
the voice of your present switchboard operator. It can be
used full time or on a required basis - ie. during peak calling
periods, overflow situations, after hours, lunch breaks, holidays,
etc. It's fast, it's flexible, and it comes complete with
an internal company directory, for those callers who don't
know their party's extension number.
How does it work?
"Good morning, XYZ Company. Please say the name of the
person or department with whom you wish to speak with. Say
"Dave Smith" Music in background. "Good Morning.
Dave Smith speaking."
