Switch call forwarding routes on the move with hosted VoIP short codes

Yay.com have introduced the capability to switch call forwards on the fly using just a simple button short code.

Our smart conditional call forwarding already offers the option to redirect calls to various destinations and devices based on phone numbers, extensions dialled, or even after a specific amount of time. Short codes are made up of short keypad combinations or speed dials that trigger specific Cloud PBX features, such as appearing anonymous when making outbound calls. With call route switching via short codes, we have now made it possible to change call forward routes in a matter of seconds.

Dynamic call forwarding for increased agility

Whatever your size of business, from large corporations to Startups and SMBs, we know that busy business environments often mean that you can't always be in the office. With this in mind, we think that this addition to the VoIP phone feature-set will be especially useful in cases where you need to pop out of the office for a short period, maybe to even grab some lunch, but still want to receive business calls.

By inputting your designated short keycode you can send incoming calls to your mobile phone instantly, plus it's super-easy to turn off and route calls back to your office phone once you're back in the building.

Simply tapping a quick key short code into your desktop VoIP phone takes out the need to log into your online Dashboard to update call routes and makes our VoIP phone system even more agile.

Easy setup via hosted VoIP

To enable short code call forwarding and assign a specific key code, simply log into your Yay.com VoIP account and navigate to the Short Code section of your online Dashboard. From here you can configure and start using call forward short codes today.

If you're not yet a Yay.com customer you can try our hosted VoIP service with a free VoIP trial.
