In telephony terms, Auto-Attendant (or automated attendant) is used to describe a cloud voice response system that allows incoming callers to hear a greeting and be transferred to one or more extensions without going through an operator or receptionist. It is also called as digital virtual receptionist.
Mobile IVR is similar to an Auto Attendant cloud voice menu system that plays a greeting and allows callers to be transferred to various extensions connected to employees or departments. It is setup in a cloud and the calls can be routed to various phone numbers automatically.
Businesses are trying to be efficient in their communications management. Unlike with a live operator, the auto attendant means your business will never miss customer service or sales calls. Cloud IVR allows you to setup virtual answering service to route incoming calls to the right department or extension.
