Dial-By-Name Directory

Call Ocean’s dial-by-name directory helps ensure your customers connect with the right person every time.

Call Ocean’s dial-by-name directory helps take the confusion out of contacting the right team or staff member. An automated voice answers the call and prompts your customer for the name of the person they’re calling. They then simply use the keypad on their phone to enter the first or last name into the dial-by-name directory. The automated voice reads the name back to the caller and provides the extension, ensuring that your customer can contact the right person immediately, with no hassle and no fuss. You don’t even have to stick with our pre-recorded options – it’s a snap to record your own!

Does the number listed for an individual within the directory have to be a landline in my physical business location?
