Features and benefits
Enables Organizations to publish a single national number and then route incoming calls to different destinations.
Toll free has a special call charging procedure where the called party is charged the cost of the calls by the telephone carrier, instead of the calling party.
Call forwarding on busy / no answer:
If an incoming call request cannot be served (for instance because the line is busy or does not answer), the call can be forwarded to another destination. Announcements and voice mailboxes can also be specified as alternative destinations. This ensures that callers always receive a response of one sort or another, at least.
Origin Dependent Routing:
The origin of the call is one of the criteria that results in special treatment of the call. The place of origin determines how the call will be routed. It is possible to restrict acceptance of calls to those calls that originate in defined regions. In this case the service is not available outside these defined regions.
If the destination is an organization with several telephone numbers, it is possible to distribute calls to these lines on a percentage basis.
Subscriber Specific Announcement:
This option enables the toll free service customer to play prerecorded voice information referring callers to other numbers, explaining service conditions, or other general information
Time Dependent Routing:
The time of day of the call determines how the call will be routed. An unlimited number of time windows can be defined, during which calls are routed to different destinations.
These time windows can be defined, for example, in terms of hour and minutes, Morning/afternoon/evening and/or day of the week, that a customer desires to provide to callers.
