Breakdown of core features
Organizations can reduce the workload of administrative assistants by creating automated attendants with Zoom Phone’s call routing wizards. Users can define unlimited multi-level auto attendants to systematically route calls to queues, extensions, and voicemails.
Intelligent call routing and management
Zoom Phone ensures efficient call connections with intelligent personal and system call routing capabilities. This feature automatically routes incoming calls to a designated user or group of phone users. Users can also route calls to external contacts or to custom audio messages.
Call queues allow admins to manage incoming calls and route them to a specific group of users. For example, users can route calls to people in the organization’s billing, sales, or customer service departments. Each call queue has a maximum of 50 members. Users can also change call queue settings and monitor call queue calls.
Zoom Phone’s call delegation provides a simple way for phone users to assign others to handle calls on their behalf. For instance, executives can delegate calling privileges to their assistants, letting the assistant make and receive calls on the executive’s behalf. Both users will be able to see the status of the shared lines.
