Auto attendant systems allow callers to be automatically directed (transferred) to the desired extension without the assistance of a receptionist or operator. This functionality is commonly performed via the voice system (Private Branch eXchange (PBX) switch or a key-system switch), the Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) system, or the voice mail system.
The Department of Technology Services (DTS) provides voice mail and auto attendant services for approved agency locations.
