What is Auto Attendant?

A digital auto attendant is a virtual phone feature that answers calls for you. Think of it as your own virtual receptionist, directing customers to the department and staff they need for their query. You can set up custom voice menu for your business auto attendant, based on the structure and departments of your business, meaning customers calling your number can interact with your auto attendant to be transferred to the department they need. For example, "press 1 for sales, 2 for customer support". Call flows are more efficient for customers, and your staff aren't wasting time transferring calls - win-win.
