Auto Attendant (IVR) / Digital Assistant

What is an Auto Attendant

This service is given many names including Auto Attendant, Digital Assistant or IVR (Interactive Voice Response) but essentially it is a menu system that enables the caller to choose from a number of different options to get directly to the department they want.

The option they choose determines where their call is sent and the most common options are sales, service or support and accounts. One of the best ways of understanding how this works is using a Hosted PBX Call Flow Diagram and we have included some different scenarios below.

Why do Companies Use an Auto Attendant

It’s great for small businesses who use virtual assistants from Australia or around the world because the person doesn’t need to be in your office, they can be anywhere.

Auto Attendants also make a company seem larger and more organised so it will make the business more attractive to customers who not only get directly to the person they want to speak with but know that they can get directly to other departments within the company.

An Auto Attendant is a service that anyone can sign up to and you don’t need a phone system. We can create an Auto Attendant in the cloud and point the menu options to various numbers you may already have.

How Does it Work?
