Benefits of Extensions
It’s time to ditch your old-school phone system.
Give your callers more options
Single-digit extensions (also known as menu options) are a great way to send callers to specific departments such as sales or support.

Extensions can be configured to route caller’s to a single phone, multiple phones, desktop users, automated message, & voice mailboxes.
With Talkroute you may add as many multi-digit extensions as needed. It’s truly unlimited.
