What is a Virtual Switchboard ?
A Virtual Switchboard, also known as a Virtual Receptionist, is similar to an auto attendant but normally includes more advanced features such as call queuing. It's virtual because it which does not require any hardware, the system is provided as a hosted service. The purpose of a Virtual Switchboard is to get callers re-directed without the use of an operator or assistant. A Virtual Switchboard is managed through a web browser with the processes and logic used to re-route the caller based on rules defined on the control panel. For example the caller may be re-routed differently based on time of day or a menu option selected (or a combination of many other features).
The service lazypbx.com is ideal as a Virtual Switchboard because of it's flexibility.
