Home » Cloud Telephony Features » Find Me Follow Me Routing

As a business, maintaining seamless communication with customers, clients, and employees is crucial. This is especially true for businesses with staff and customers spread across multiple locations. How can your business remain accessible at all times?

United World Telecom offers an advanced Find Me Follow Me call routing strategy, designed to ensure that you’re always connected, no matter where you are. With this feature, your business can:

  • Expand your reach across multiple regions and countries
  • Route calls to remote, distributed teams and call centers during off-hours
  • Maintain business continuity at all times
  • Offer 24/7 global support
  • Never miss important calls, regardless of your location or the device

What is the Find Me Follow Me Strategy?

Find Me Follow Me combines two powerful call routing strategies: “Find Me” and “Follow Me.”

The “Find Me” component directs incoming calls to your specified location such as your office, smartphone, remote team, etc. Meanwhile, “Follow Me” forwards calls to multiple phones, either ringing simultaneously or sequentially, making you accessible across several devices.

Together, they automatically direct incoming calls to your specified destinations and devices, ensuring that your teams receive calls, irrespective of their location.

You can choose to have these numbers ring one after another or all at once, ensuring the call is answered promptly. If all attempts go unanswered, send the call to voicemail or a backup team, based on your preference.
