Business Phone Systems - Dial By Extension

Allow your callers to get straight through to the extension they want with Dial By Extension.

Our cloud phone system enables your callers to directly reach the person or department they want by dialing their dedicated extension number, even if they’re not themselves a SIP user on your phone system. With’s Dial By Extension feature, callers just need to call your primary business phone number, then input the user extension they need when prompted. With the option to create extensions for both single users and groups, it’s possible to create a smooth and efficient experience for your callers. Assign audio prompts for those calling, set the calling tone the caller hears and even set maximum ring durations if the extension is busy or not available; it’s all possible with this Dial By Extension feature.

Create Extensions For Single Users And Groups

Extensions can not only be created for single users, but also for groups of staff members or even entire departments. This makes it easy for internal and external callers to contact the department, individual or group of individuals best posed to handle their query, making for an efficient and pleasant caller experience.

You can make dial-by-extension available to your callers through our intuitive, modular call routing interface. Simply drag and drop the module into your call route and you’ll be granted detailed control over the call experience for both the caller and the agent answering. Play the caller a custom audio message to prompt them to input the extension; change the dialling tone as an indication that the caller is coming through to a different department or user; even whisper an informative message directly to the agent answering the call.
