Customer welcome, call routing and automated attendant features for small businesses

When clients call your office, they should get the best service. The communication system you use should provide reliable end-to-end call management, with a professional welcome and efficient call routing. And, if all lines are busy, the system needs to be able to handle call overflow too. OXO Connect’s greeting features can provide this.

When staff are travelling or out of the office, calls can be forwarded to voicemail and office voicemail can be checked remotely and securely. To increase productivity, the system can also provide tools for collaborative communications with colleagues as well as integrating with office operations.

Alcatel-Lucent offers a variety of different products, features and applications based on OXO Connect to create the right customer welcome solution for your business:

  • Greeting messages
  • Phone and PC-based Attendant console
  • Automated Attendant (AA)
  • Multiple Level AA

  • Intelligent and Smart Call Routing
