Hosted VoIP Features

Auto Attendant

Your SaaS 44° Auto Attendant (IVR) lets your customers "Press 1 for Sales", "Press 2 for Support." or “Press 3 for Directions”. It's easy to use and lets you manage and customize your unique “message”. Be creative - use your Auto Attendant to promote special offers or to announce new products or services.

Company Directory

SaaS 44° Hosted VoIP VoIP is equipped with a spell by name company directory. Callers are prompted to spell the first three letters of a persons first or last name. They are automatically connected to the requested extension.

Caller ID

Caller ID displays the callers number and the name associated with the callers telephone number.


Every SaaS 44° Hosted VoIP extension has voicemail. You can access your voicemail by:

  • Dialling *98 on your office extension and following the prompts.
  • Dialling in remotely from any outside phone and following the prompts.
  • Receiving audio (.wav) files attached to an email sent to your Inbox.

Voicemail to Email

Sometimes referred to as unified messaging, you will receive an email whenever you receive a voicemail. An audio file (.wav) is attached to the email so you can listen to your voicemail on your computer, wherever you are.

Call Forwarding

Every SaaS 44° Hosted VoIP extension can be enabled to forward calls directly to an alternate internal extension or to an external phone number. If you are seldom in your office, have your calls forwarded directly to your cell phone. If you can't answer your cell phone, the caller can leave a voicemail.

Call queues are used to hold, and then distribute incoming customer calls to customer service representatives as they become available. There are various options available as to how calls will be allocated between your customer service representatives.

Ring Groups

Ring groups may be set up so that callers who are very important to you will be handled by the next available customer service representative. Dialling a particular extension will ring all the customer service extensions included in the group. When one of the extensions is answered, the ringing stops. After a specified number of rings, the customer call will be routed to voicemail.
