Abbreviated IM, a type of communications service that enables you to create a kind of private chat room with another individual in order to communicate in real time over the Internet, analogous to a telephone conversation but using text-based, not voice-based, communication.

Voice to Email
We all need voicemail, its a great way to keep in touch with unanswered calls!
With every FranzCom number, you get Free Voice to Email. You can also customise your own personal voicemail message which your callers will listen to!
When a caller calls you on your FranzCom number and the call is unanswered for whatever reason, the caller will be prompted to leave a voice message, which is recorded and instantly forwarded by mp3 audio file attachment to your registered email address.
For FranzCom VoIP phone users, you can check your voicemail directly from your VoIP softphone or desktop IP phone by dialling 150. VoIP phone network users can also customise their voicemail message also by dialling the voicemail access number 150.
Call queue is a service which enables the recipient of the incoming calls to hold 2 or more simultaneous phone calls in a queue. Some companies have large volumes of incoming calls, so the call queue is a great add-on to manage these kinds of calls.
While the caller is waiting in the queue, custom music is played and maybe some advertising messages too. As the caller moves up the queue, the caller hears a notification informing them of their waiting time and position they are in the queue. When an agent becomes available or the caller reaches number one in the call queue, the caller is put through to the next available agent.
In telephony, line hunting (or hunt groups) are the method of distributing phone calls from a single telephone number to a group of several phone lines. Specifically, it refers to the process used to select which line will receive the call. Hunt groups are supported by our system and we support 3 settings consecutive, simultaneous or random.
Phone Line Extensions
In residential telephony, an extension telephone is an additional telephone wired to the same telephone line as another. The first telephone on a line was a “Main Station” and subsequent ones “Extensions”. In business telephony, a business would have a hardware switchboard installed in their building to allow multiple incoming lines and lots of separate phone lines.
With the modern age of Hosted IP Telephony, now users can have all this and more on a hosted virtual switchboard!
With the FranzCom hosted VoIP phone network a customer can have multiple phone lines all on the same customer account and you can assign an extension number for each VoIP phone line (eg. 101, 102, 103) you have with us. The phone line extensions feature is only available on our geographic numbers.
This is great, for all kinds of businesses, like Hotels, Offices, Holiday Parks and Complexes, Branch Offices located in different areas, Remote Workers and more….
A call transfer is a telecommunications medium that enables a telephone user to transfer an existing telephone call to another phone line or extension, using a transfer call button or dialling the required phone number. The transferred call is either announced or unannounced.
On the FranzCom hosted VoIP phone network, we support call transfer. Please refer to your VoIP phone or softphone instruction manual to find out if it supports this feature.
When you initiate a call transfer to another FranzCom number or virtual switchboard line extension on our network your call is free of charge. However, if you transfer a call to a landline or mobile phone on another telecoms network, you will be charged our standard call rates for the transferred call.
Call Waiting is a service whereby someone making a telephone call is notified of an incoming call on the line that they are already using and is able to place the first call on hold while the second is answered. This is service is switched on by default.
Because our hosted VoIP telephony network supports simultaneous calls, if you have a VoIP phone which supports multiple user call conferencing, which usually support between 3-10 callers. Our hosted VoIP phone network is compatible with these conferencing phones.
