The virtual auto attendant phone services featured below take advantage of your current telephone lines (landlines and/or cell phones). If you are considering a completely web-based business telephone system to replace an existing traditional system, or if you currently are without a system, a cloud-based VOIP business telephone solution might be right for you.

RingCentral Office is an affordable VOIP (Voice Over IP) business telephone system, costing much less than traditional systems, while having more features.

See if the RingCentral Office VOIP virtual office phone system is the communication tool your small business needs.


"Thank you for calling [name of company]. Press 1 for sales, 2 for customer service, 3 for a company directory..."

A virtual auto attendant phone system gives your company the feel of a Fortune 500 corporation with a custom greeting and interactive voice response (IVR) menu structure. Customers calling your main local or toll-free business number will automatically be greeted by a welcoming and efficient auto attendant system, which greatly enhances the appearance of your organization. This is all handled via the Internet using VOIP technology (Voice Over Internet Protocol - Wikipedia definition), harnessing the power of the web to enhance your company's communication ability.

Most small businesses live and die by the telephone. Customers need an easy way to get ahold of a company when they need them. They expect someone to answer the phone when they call. In other words, they want the business they are calling to be available when they have a need. Customers that can't get ahold of your company will just move on to your competition, until they find someone willing to take their call. A virtual automated attendant telephone system makes you available for your customers, no matter where you happen to currently be.

Virtual Auto Attendant Phone System Features

Your virtual automated attendant routes incoming calls to the appropriate person or department based on extensions, business hours, and other routing criteria you specify. Calls can be routed to office, mobile, and even home telephones, as well as the included voicemail service, making it very easy for your valuable customers to always be able to reach someone, or leave a message.

Watch the two videos below to learn how RingCentral, the leading cloud-based telephone service, works. This will give you an idea of how powerful this system is, and what advantages it brings to every small business. By bringing powerful VOIP auto attendant technology to your existing telephone service (landline and/or cellular), it is an ideal, affordable way to supercharge your organization's communication capability.

Every employee can have an extension with a cloud-based phone auto attendant. This links all of your employees via your main number, giving the impression that even employees working at other locations are at the main office. This allows you to have remote employees, yet your customers will never know, as incoming call routing is handled seamlessly, connecting the incoming caller to the appropriate person each time.

The tables below outline the features found with the leading cloud-based auto attendant service providers, while the videos show you the system in action.

An Automated Attendant that is Easy to Use

A virtual auto attendant phone system is incredibly simple to setup and administer. Every feature and function is easily controlled via an online interface, giving you access to everything, including voice mail messaging. It is incredibly simple to scale the virtual phone system, letting you add, or subtract, extensions as you need, as well as instantly configure how incoming calls are handled.

With the ability to quickly update the call answering rules, you can change the way the automated attendant handles call routing for holidays, after hours calls, or if you are temporarily at another location. Incoming calls can literally follow you, or your employees, which means that customers will always be able to get ahold of someone, even if no one is currently in the office.

Because this system is a cloud-based telephone solution, it saves you an incredible amount of money over a hardware-based solution, yet you get the same advanced features. Now, even the smallest of small companies can have the same advanced communication capability as large corporations, without any upfront expense, or high monthly maintenance fees. Small business communication has truly been revolutionized!
