Companies rarely offer premium features or products for anything short of, well, a premium. Because VirtualPBX hosted business phone plans are some of the longest-running and most comprehensive unified communications options available on the market — including our free Auto Attendant that’s available on all our Business Phone Plans — they boast an array of premium features for businesses of all sizes.
We offer dozens of features that other service providers would charge extra for that would take too long to go over one-by-one. That said, there’s not enough space here to cover all of them in one article, so we’ll focus today on one of our most popular: the Auto Attendant.
There Really Is Such a Thing as a Free Auto Attendant!
As we mentioned, every VirtualPBX Phone Plan comes with a host of valuable and time-saving features. And though some premium offerings like Salesforce CRM Integrations and ACD Queues Pro are available, no VirtualPBX service comes without at least a free Auto Attendant.
The Auto Attendant is one of the perennial favorites among our customers and has been for ages. In fact, early versions of the free Auto Attendant came on legacy business VoIP platforms that we operated years ago and it was an immediate success from the start. Since then, and like all of our products and services, the Auto Attendant has received successions of updates and improvements, all of which have combined to bring it to companies in its most advanced state yet. And in spite of all of the award-winning advancements the VirtualPBX engineers have applied to and all of the other features along the way, Auto Attendant has stayed (and will remain) completely free and included in every VirtualPBX account.
What’s So Special About It?
Well, other than the obvious “free” part of that question, there really is a lot a company can do with an Auto Attendant that makes it so popular.
Any virtual receptionist can answer a call and send the caller to voicemail, but the free Auto Attendant from VirtualPBX can perform any one of a litany of call answering services.
Being able to customize the inbound caller’s journey with specific greetings, audio of your choosing (including professional greetings and on-hold music), send callers to any department or individual, and the ability even change all of those aspects to accommodate night/day or office hours is all just a fraction of the functions that can be performed by an Auto Attendant.
And sure, Auto Attendant is included for free in the native feature set of a VirtualPBX Business Phone Plan, there’s no way you can get into one of those for free, right? Wrong! In fact, between our 15-day no questions asked money-back guarantee, and the chance to preview our Phone System for free, you really can try it before you buy it.
