Auto-attendants provide callers with automated answering, prompting, and call routing based on caller input, without the need for a live attendant. Callers can still exit out of the auto-attendant or dial their party’s extension at any time. Unlimited auto-attendants are included with every Jive solution.

Common Use Case

When customers call in, they can listen to a brief message and then select the department they’d like to be directed to.
