Extend the reach of your PBX to your cell, home or landline.
Does your business depend on cell phones for its communications? Many businesses are reducing overhead by allowing employees to work remotely. MyOffice PBX Virtual Extensions gives your employees the freedom to accept office calls regardless of their geographic location.
A Virtual Extension or Virtual Phone Number connects landline and cell phones to your business PBX through the use of Call Forwarding. Virtual extensions are the easiest and least expensive way to manage your business communications as they don't require you to purchase new phones - they work with the phones you already have! Calls received by the PBX are simply forwarded to any phone number or group of phone numbers that you specify (in the order you specify: sequential, round-robin or ring-all).
For example, an after-hours plumbing company can add their after-hour plumber's cell phones as MyOffice PBX virtual extensions and assign these extensions to a calling Group. When an after-hour call is received, each cell phone assigned to the "After Hours" Group will be called. If the call is still not answered, the company can route the call to voicemail or to their answering service.
Who Uses Virtual PBX Extensions?
Realtors, contractors, insurance companies, and virtually any business that works remotely or operates a mobile workforce often choose Virtual Extensions to link their cell phones directly to their business line or redirect callers based on availability.
Keep your personal number private
If your business runs on your personal cell phone, but you don't want your personal numbers to become public - MyOffice PBX is the solution. By installing a free softphone app on your smartphone, returned calls appear as your business number regardless of the phone you are actually using. Furthermore, voicemails are sent as an attachment - meaning one employee can easily forward messages to the other right from a cell phone.
