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

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 specific amounts of time. While 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 combine the two features to make it possible to change call routing in a matter of seconds.

Dynamic call forwarding for increased agility

Whatever your size of business, whether a large corporation, Startup or SMB, we know that busy business environments often mean that you can't always be in the office.

This feature-set addition will be especially useful in cases where you need to leave the office for short periods, but still want to receive calls to your business.

For example, by inputting a designated short code into your desktop phone, 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. It's not only limited to sending calls to your mobile, and you can assign short codes to any call route you like including sending callers to out-of-office messages, different phone numbers, and everything in-between!

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 to specific call routes, 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.
