Callers are greeted and prompted to state their name. They are then asked to “please stay on the line while I try to reach your party”. While the caller is waiting the system will call the number you left to reach you. Once the system reaches you, the caller’s name is played for you (in the caller’s own voice) and you are given the option of accepting or declining the call. If you accept, you are immediately connected to your caller. If you decline the call, or the system doesn’t reach you, your caller is prompted to leave a message. This helps you manage your time, while still being available to take only the most important phone calls.
