What is an auto-attendant?

Auto-Attendant (or automated attendant) is a term commonly used in telephony to describe a voice menu system that allows callers to be transferred to an extension without going through a telephone operator or receptionist. The auto-attendant is also known as a digital receptionist.

For a caller to find a user on a phone system, a dial-by-name directory is available. This feature lists users by name, allowing the caller to press a key to automatically ring the extension of a user once his/her extension is announced by the auto attendant.

There are many different types of auto-attendant options available, these include:

  •          Automated receptionist / auto-receptionist
  •          Automated messaging
  •          Automated call handling
  •          Scripted auto-attendant
  •          Call queuing auto-attendant
