Now that you’re acquainted with our Office Plans, it’s time to see what sorts of phone system features are available to you with your VirtualPBX service. View our phone system features and benefits below.
System Configuration & Management
Only VirtualPBX offers the industry standard for reliability, scalability, availability, and ease-of-use regardless of your business size.
With VirtualPBX, you can present a unified company image under one central telephone number. All of your employees-whether in a central office, branch offices, home offices, or traveling-are reachable through your main number. Learn More
Every extension in a VirtualPBX can be designated as a “Live Extension” that is able to take calls, or a “Mail-Only Extension” that’s designed to receive voicemail only. Learn More
To help make system configuration easy, we provide a graphical, web-based tool, accessible from any web browser. Administrators are granted complete access to oversee, change, and monitor all system functions.
While having a single incoming business number gives your business a unified presence, it can be very useful to have multiple incoming business numbers. Learn More
Many companies find that they need to add more phone lines to keep their system from ringing busy when call traffic is high. Calls placed to your business through VirtualPBX are answered by our phone system, where we have hundreds of lines and never ring busy. Learn More
The VirtualPBX system incorporates “n+1” redundancy with automatic failover throughout the system to assure minimum downtime. When we have a component failure, that part of the system is automatically isolated and removed from use, and calls are instantly rolled over to working equipment. Learn More
Every call to your VirtualPBX number is routed through our datacenter. Our hardware and software technology individually routes every call, providing special safety features included with our service. As the hub for all communications we make sure that it’s completely protected. Learn More
Dispersed workforces are cost-effective for companies that can balance them with freedom and support.
Unlike traditional, on-site PBX systems, VirtualPBX’s cloud-based platform allows you to connect calls to any device on Earth so getting connected is easier than ever. Learn More
Traveling with just the login information for his or her specific extension, an employee can now effectively activate that same extension from anywhere in the world for inbound and outbound calling. Learn More
Program an office phone to cascade down through up to four different numbers to reach an employee when they are out of the office. Learn More
Even with a dispersed workforce that can cover thousands of miles, transferring calls is no problem. Unencumbered by the antiquated copper-wire telephones of a physical PBX system, VirtualPBX can transfer calls to any other line in the system network, regardless of location. Learn More
Especially valuable for franchises, GeoRoute automatically directs calls into the nearest business location to them based on the area code of the inbound number. Learn More
The ultimate in customizable routing, SelectRoute allows callers to route themselves by any numeric identifier you choose up to 9-digits. Anything from product numbers to zipcodes and anything between can be designate where a caller is directed. Learn More
No time to take a call on a particular topic? Setting up a mail-only extension gives your customers an avenue to leave open for callers during otherwise inopportune times for you and your team members to answer. Learn More
How you greet your customers is just as important as how you take care of them once they’ve arrived. That begins with call answering options.
What information do your employees need to know to make their life easier and your customer’s experience better? Program calls to display relevant, helpful information before answering to set them up for success. Learn More
Asking callers to speak their name will allow for your employees to know who is on the line before deciding to answer. Learn More
You know what the sign on the door means, respect your employees’ time off and keep all outside distractions outside when they need to be. Learn More
Saving you time and money, this virtual assistant can be programmed to replicate nearly all of the same functions as a human attendant, directing callers to departments. Learn More
With hundreds of music selection to choose from in the VirtualPBX Jukebox, you’ll never run out of on-hold music options. Don’t worry, though, because if you did, you can still upload any of your own music, as well. Learn More
This is a way to help your callers find someone specific when they don’t have that employee’s extension on hand. Learn More
Utilize the display functions on your phones to provide useful information on incoming callers and control your outward facing credentials.
- Circumnavigate blocked call anonymity and still know the origin of all incoming calls, regardless of masking attempts
- Always display the dialed number and extension of the incoming call to know where it specifically was intended to go
- Control your outbound numbers to be that of the public-facing number of your company or the number of the actual extension from which it was dialed
- Use personal phones on private lines and route them through your VirtualPBX service to let SmartID conceal your private contact information.

Whether for quality assurance or for regulatory compliance issues, Call Recording is easy and inexpensive.

Either way, you can listen to, delete, and store directly into your Dropbox account any conversation as soon as it is saved right from your web-based management portal. Learn More
Voicemail and Online Fax
While on the move, busy professionals can’t make every meeting or answer every call. Comprehensive message retrieval options ensure you always get the message.

Every VirtualPBX plan comes with internet fax service fully integrated into the line – no need for a physical machine. All of the functionality of a fax machine without any of the cost of bulky physical equipment, additional phone lines, or extra charges. Learn More
Expediting callers through your phone system is the best way to make sure they stay engaged and remain on the line. TrueACD Queues from VirtualPBX assist callers who know what they want, but not who can help them by organizing agents departmentally.
Queuing Logic: Using any one of these could be just right for your business, but you can also allow for redundancies and edits at any time, day or night.
Don’t let simple first-in-first-out govern who gets hit with the most calls, set a standard distributive rhythm to the inbound traffic and keep all your workers on the same page. Learn More

With an intelligent agent portal, companies can prescribe what functions admins have access to and can allow agents to log themselves in and out of the system. System admins can add and subtract access to any agent on the fly as their responsibilities grow. Learn More
Always know what’s going on from anywhere in the world. Who is logged in, how many calls in the queue, wait time, and everything else you need to know to keep your company on track all are available as it happens. Learn More
Seeing things as they happen is important, but so is understanding why they happened after the fact. Historical call and queue data is available any time you want from a web portal. Learn More
Notations are difficult to complete while giving a caller full attention, Agent wrap-up time allows for a window between each call that you can arrange for agents to finish their CRM input and prepare for another caller. Learn More
When the call-waiting line begins to back up, or if the wait time reaches a specified duration, you can program the system to notify the agent with a tone the inbound caller can’t hear, indicating it is time to seek a resolution to the current call. Learn More
Don’t outsource one of the best ways to maximize time across time zones. VirtualPBX lets you host your own advanced teleconferences so now you can take control of the meeting even before it starts.
Each VirtualPBX plan has conference minutes included, pick the one that is right for your needs and change it as you need. Learn More
No need to schedule time with a third-party conference provider and get an expiring passcode, when your system is the host, you can call a meeting anytime you need it, when you need it. Learn More
Would you believe that there is even more? The reality is there will always be more because we don’t like to stop moving forward.
