What is the Business Hours Feature?

The Business Hours feature is a crucial VoIP attribute, allowing businesses to define their operating hours. By customizing the hours during which they are available to receive calls, businesses can ensure they align their availability with their clients’ needs and work schedules.

How it Works with Omnivoice

Omnivoice’s Business Hours feature allows you to set specific days and hours during which your business will accept incoming calls. Outside these defined hours, calls can be automatically routed to a voicemail or a specified after-hours service. The feature is flexible and can be customized to suit part-time schedules, different operating hours for different days, or a typical 9 to 5 working week.
