What It Does
It does far more than your carrier. Sure, you can forward your calls. But it's all or nothing. All calls forward to ONE location. That's not enough for any growing business. Callers are empowered with options and get the immediate service they need. It also costs far less than a PBX or IVR service, which can often cost hundreds of dollars a month.
How Auto-Attendant (Call Forwarding) Works
When you can't - or choose not to answer an incoming call, YouMail answers the call for you, and plays a professional greeting for your caller. That greeting presents the caller with some choices – for example, that they can press 0 to connect to your assistant. YouMail takes care of routing them to whatever number is associated with their choice. You can choose up to 10 different phone numbers to redirect your missed calls to by setting a different phone number for all digits between 0 and 9.
Why Auto-Attendant is Important
You work hard to generate interest for your business. Whether it's a potential new customer or an existing one that needs immediate attention, plenty of callers don't like leaving voicemails. Wouldn't it be great if they could reach someone right away? With Auto-Attendant (and YouMail Professional), they can!
