With your CenturyLink SIMPLETM voice service, you can manage calls from your customers and much more. You can set up messages for callers to hear, route calls so they get answered as quickly as possible, assign phone numbers to your employees, manage their calling features, view analytics data, and run reports. You and your employees can use the notes feature to keep the team up to date.

  • Advanced Services—you can manage auto attendants, hunt groups, call queues, call pick up, and call park from here.
  • Analytics—see details about the activities associated with specific numbers and types of calls; use the data to generate reports.
