What are Phone Extensions?

Phone extensions are short, specific numbers within a business phone system that allow you to connect directly to an employee or a department in an organization. These extensions come into play when someone dials the main business number or needs to transfer calls within the company. They are set up to reflect the organization’s structure, helping to easily connect to different departments, team members, or even facilities like conference rooms. Managed through the organization’s phone system, known as a Private Branch Exchange (PBX), these systems offer features like voicemail, call forwarding and various call options.

Intratel’s phone services provide easy-to-manage phone extensions that allow callers to connect effortlessly to the correct person or department. Incoming calls are answered with a customized professional greeting and extension voice menu. The caller can dial the extension that best suits their needs, and they will be routed to the appropriate person or department.

The short internal number is a convenient way for employees to quickly and accurately connect with each other. It allows employees to customize their own voicemail and call forwarding rules, ensuring that any missed calls will be acknowledged.

Business phone extensions are available with the following:


Reduce the Cost of Hiring a Full-Time Receptionist

By using dialing extensions, you can save on the expense of hiring a full-time receptionist. Your phone system can efficiently route calls to the right departments without manual intervention.

Improve Customer Experience

Dialing extensions enhance customers' experience by quickly connecting them directly to the right person or department, reducing wait times, and ensuring they receive prompt assistance.

Include Pre-Recorded Messages

You can include pre-recorded messages providing essential information such as business hours, location, services, etc. This ensures callers receive the information they need even before speaking to someone.

Save Employees Time

With phone extensions, your employees spend less time answering general phone calls and directing them to the appropriate departments. This allows them to focus on more critical tasks and improve productivity.

Reduce Hold Time for Callers

Dialing extensions minimize the time callers spend on hold by quickly directing them to the appropriate department or individual, enhancing their overall experience with your company.

Multiple Business Phone Extensions for One Phone Line

It is possible to have multiple extensions for one phone line. This makes it easy for one person to manage numerous extensions. Multiple extensions can also boost your company’s image by creating the appearance that a small business has several departments. In reality, one person can manage all the incoming calls.

Satellite Offices

Leveraging VoIP technology, you can seamlessly have your office extensions at different locations! For example, you have offices in Vancouver and Toronto. These offices can transfer calls easily between each other and share one receptionist for all locations. You can also have mirrored extensions at employee’s home offices!

No matter the size of your business, from start-ups to enterprises, with Intratel’s Hosted PBX or On-Premise PBX phone services, we can set up your phone system with extensions!
