SIP IVR voicemail
Creating a SIP IVR Voicemail box is easy. The recording from the caller can be delivered as an audio file to an email address of choice.
Sonetel phone numbers can be configured to send calls to Voice apps (SIP IVR). It is also possible to send calls from your SIP equipment to the unique SIP address of the SIP IVR voicemail.
A voicemail box has the following features:
- Plays a message
Plays a message prior to the recording “Welcome to XYZ. Please leave your message after the beep”.
- Records the caller
The recording continues until the caller hangs up.
- Delivers the recorded message
Sends the message to the destination of choice.
