The Vodia cloud PBX used hunt groups are used to distribute inbound calls to agents, typically for simple, low call volume groups. The PBX calls the agents up in stages, making it possible to escalate calls to more and more extensions. If the call doesn’t get picked up, it is ultimately sent to a programmable destination, such as a mailbox, another group or an external number. Incoming calls are processed as they come into the system and placed in a queue.

For conferences, the Vodia cloud PBX enables users to plan in advance for scheduled conferences or to pull together at a moment’s notice for ad hoc conferences – recording on-the-go and scheduled conferences are both available. Let’s look at the functionality and behavior the PBX provides users.

With the price of goods and services lofted skyward by inflation, and the average price of a gallon of gas across the USA above $4.00 per gallon, working from home gives Americans the chance to reduce the amount of money they spend on commuting and meals and other incidental costs related to working on-site every day.
