Auto Attendant Systems and Software

auto attendant Database Systems Corp. (DSC) is a leading provider of calling solutions including automatic call distribution (ACD) systems and software. These products include automatic phone attendant features.

What Is An Auto Attendant?

    "In telephony, an automated attendant (also referred to as an auto attendant or auto-attendant) system empowers a caller with the ability to be transferred to a specific phone extension without the intervention of a "live" receptionist."
A receptionist or telephone operator can generally be reached by pressing "0" on most systems. The automated attendant is a feature on most modern PBX and computer phone systems.

An auto attendant with interactive voice response (IVR) processes inbound phone calls and plays recorded messages including information extracted from databases and the internet. This attendant can then route calls to either in-house service agents or transfer the caller to an outside extension. It enhances the already robust features of our call center phone systems.

This automatic phone attendant system front ends the DSC PACER and WIZARD phone systems, collecting useful information from a caller before the call is transferred to an service representative. Our automatic attendant and call routing system can answer the callerís request without a "live" transfer. The PACER and WIZARD call routers give your organization a 24 by 7 capability, providing information to your callers.

Auto Attendant Phone Systems

auto attendant system DSC offers both analog and digital auto attendant phone systems that include phone answering software.

This ACD phone system generally processes incoming phone calls on a first in first out basis. The phone answering system typically greets the caller with an introductory message and provides menu options from which to select.

The auto attendant phone system holds the call in a queue until it can be directed to the next available representative from the appropriate department or with the proper skill set required to help this caller.

When an agent becomes available, this representative serves the first caller in this queue. However, the phone system does far more than simply process calls in sequence.

Our PACER (digital) and WIZARD (analog) ACD software manages multiple call queues, keeps a log of call group activity, and monitors call activity such as call queues, agents, and on hold times. Depending upon user defined business rules, our automatic call distribution systems create different processing paths for different callers.
