Why Your Nonprofit Organization Needs an Auto Attendant
Your Nonprofit Organization Should Be Leveraging an Auto Attendant No Matter What Size it is
A sophisticated auto attendant provides your organization with efficient call management which is supported by our phone donation program. A reliable and highly capable auto attendant can handle all calls to your office, and meets the community, donors, supporters and volunteers with undivided attention.
Whether you have a receptionist or not, you can trust that all calls are handled with care. In other words, anyone calling your main telephone number will be greeted with a short, professional recording telling the caller to dial an extension or to press a single key to be routed to the appropriate department faster. You may grant callers the option to dial a specific extension number, dial by name or personalize as you wish.
What can expect from a strong auto attendant solution:
- Personalize greetings and call routing based on business hours or dates and establish rules for auto attendant greetings based on your specific needs.
- Record different messages for holidays or events with special recordings.
- Forward calls to an outside line if your staff is out of the office and in the field – don’t let your calls go un-answered.
- Change your auto attendant settings from anywhere through the online-portal. Alert your constituents of special circumstances.
Here is an example:
