What is virtual voicemail?
Virtual voicemail is a cloud voicemail service that lets you access your messages online or through an app. Since your virtual voicemail box is not tied to a traditional phone system, you can stay informed and be responsive even when you’re away from the office.
Web-based voicemail can often provide voicemail to email service as well for added convenience. The voicemail recordings arrive as MP3 attachments in our inbox every time you receive a message so you can quickly check and prioritize your work.
