3CX Phone System's Digital receptionist automatically answers calls

Beta 5 adds automated attendant and voice mail features to free edition of Windows SIP Server


Nicosia, Cyprus -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/15/2007 --3CX, a start-up company developing a software-based IP PBX for Windows, has added digital receptionist and voice mail features in Beta 5 of its IP PBX / SIP server product, 3CX Phone System for Windows.

The digital receptionist allows companies to setup an interactive voice response system (press 1 for sales, 2 for support, etc) and makes processing calls more efficient, whilst improving the company image. The Voice mail feature allows callers to leave messages which in turn get routed to recipients via e-mail.

"Both the Digital receptionist (a.k.a. automated attendant or interactive voice response) and voice mail features are usually an expensive add-on to a phone system. However 3CX Phone System will include this feature as standard - even in the free edition,” said Nick Galea, 3CX CEO.

It is envisaged that 3CX Phone System will be released in March 2007.
