Our virtual phone system offers a Directory feature that sounds like expensive phone systems, even if it is not expensive. You save money.
Many small companies have manually recorded phone directories that tell callers how small they really are. With VoiceMailTel’s Automated Directory Assistance you sound like a large, professional company. Your caller simply dials the name, and your Directory announces matching names and extensions. You look professional.
You choose which extensions to include in the directory then a setup wizard guides you through the process. Because it is auto-generated, your setup time is short. When you add new mailboxes, it is automatically updated. You can do it yourself, in fact you do not need to wait for the tech department to set it up. It’s simple.
