Time of day routing allows users to route calls from one location to the other during specific times of the day. With time of day routing or time-based routing, your business can provide 24-hour customer support, expand its international presence, and manage customer calls more effectively.

What Is Time of Day Routing?

Time of day routing is a free feature included with any call forwarding service plan from United World Telecom. This feature allows you to redirect incoming calls from your toll free or local numbers to one or more alternate telephone numbers or SIP addresses during specific times of day so that you never miss an important call. This is a high-performance feature and can help you leverage your business or personal brand greatly. Here’s what time of day routing can do for your business:

Provide 24-Hour Customer Support

It is a great way to deliver excellent customer service by being available 24 x7 and 365 days a year. The time of day routing feature enables users to configure settings and redirect calls to different numbers during different time slots on any selected day. In short, users can forward calls worldwide with toll-free or local number and route calls by day and time with ease and answer practically every incoming call, anywhere.

Manage Incoming Calls More Effectively

It not only helps you manage incoming calls but also enables you to manage Caller ID in the system, the time-zone, and set up to 10 rules to have the system perform tasks such as: forward all calls, receive faxes, or receive voice messages on selected days at selected time-slots.

Expand Your International Presence

This feature allows you to strengthen your business presence worldwide. If you have your business spread in multiple locations in different time zones, then you can route calls according to your working hours. For example-If you have sales associates in both China and US that come under different time zones, then you can easily transfer the incoming call of your client or your customer after business hours in the US to your sales associate in China during business hours there and answer the call without missing it.
