PBX Call Routing
PBX call forwarding can also help a business of any size extend its reach. With PBX call forwarding, you can set up a virtual phone number from virtually anywhere in the world and assign it to ring to your landline or mobile phone. For example, if you work in Los Angeles but want to establish a presence in New York City, you can do so simply by establishing a New York City virtual phone number and using PBX call forwarding to route those calls to your Los Angeles office. With time of day routing, you can even control when your Los Angeles phone line rings and when those calls are routed to voicemail based on what time of day it is in New York City.
The same is true if you wanted to start serving clients in Italy, Brazil, China, Russia, Ireland, Singapore, or any other country. In these examples, you would need to order an international virtual phone number with PBX call forwarding set to ring to your Los Angeles office.
Call forwarding systems are extremely versatile as well and can follow you anywhere you go. Imagine taking your entire PBX system when you travel on business. With a traditional phone system, this would be impractical and impossible. With PBX call forwarding, however, it's a simple matter of changing your ring to number.
For instance, let's say you'll be in New York City on business for a week and don't want to miss any important calls while you're gone. Instead of dialing in and checking your voicemail messages periodically, you could simply change your ring to number to your cell phone and handle your incoming calls as they arrive. Again, your calls will be efficiently handled based on the settings you select.
