CompuVoIP: Call Management |

Call Management

Unlimited Shared Virtual Call Paths

Virtual Call Paths are used to deliver calls to/from the PSTN to either hosted end points or SIP trunks. They are shared / “pooled” by all end points, regardless of location. You can purchase any number of call paths to suit your needs, with the only limiting factors being cost and bandwidth consumption (typically 80 Kbs / call).

Burstable Virtual Call Paths

The Call Paths are also “burstable” meaning you can configure the Cloud PBX to give extra call paths “on-demand” to deliver additional calls beyond the number of paths purchased, up to 10 additional paths. The system will automatically track and bill for the extra call paths. You will have use of the additional call paths  for the remainder of the of the billing period.

Auto Attendant Answering

Set up a telephone number to dial directly to an Auto Attendant. Callers are then presented with predefined options via the Auto Attendant Feature.

Live Person Answering

Set up a telephone number to ring a specific extension first, or a group to enable sequential or simultaneous rings. This enables your company to have a live person answer the caller, and not an auto attendant.

Customize the appearance of your outgoing Caller ID by outgoing number or by extension.


Associate a voicemail box with an extension, or use an announce-only voicemail box to provide users with a pre-recorded message when they choose an option on an auto attendant or extension.

Voicemail to Email

After a voicemail is received, the CompuVoIP service will send an email to any valid email account or alias that you enter into the CompuVoIP-Phone Portal. The message will include the date and time of the call, as well as the duration, caller ID if provided, the mail box number, and an attached WAV file that can be played on a PC or mobile device.

Find Me (Digital Assistant)

Setup a personal assistant to “find you” at up to 5 locations.
