Voice messaging and Message Forwarding: A Must for employees on the Go - Even if employees are not there to answer the phone, they can still get the message. With 100 hours of storage callers can leave information in a mailbox for selected users, departments or groups of users. Employees can record personalized greetings and enjoy anywhere-anytime password-protected access to their messages marked with calling line ID, time and date of the call and priority level. With Message Forwarding, voice, fax or text messages can be forwarded to the most popular mobile devices - keeping employees connected wherever they go.
Unified messaging for simplified and efficient communications
