Vertical Pathfinder Voice Mail
Home | STSe | DHS | Analog Electronic Key Systems | Starplus Digital

     The way incoming calls are handled can make or break a growing business. You need to ensure that calls are correctly routed and messages are reliably delivered. You need to know that callers can get through during busy times and off hours. You understand that hiring an operator or receptionist to answer the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week would cost a small fortune. You realize you need a voice messaging system, and you want a system that is fully featured yet affordably priced. Well the Vodavi Pathfinder is the answer!

Automated Attendant

      Pathfinder can manage communications without a live operator. The Pathfinder will greet callers with an introduction, ask them to enter an extension or select from options, and even ask for the caller's name before transferring so the recipient can screen the call. The Pathfinder can park a call in a hold location and announce the call over your in-house paging system. The Pathfinder can also inform a caller to a busy station where they are located in the station's queue ("third in line"). Plus, the Pathfinder can provide frequently requested information such as directions to your facility.
