Solution: Multi-business offices

A group of separate company’s lease a shared office that includes an outbound calling on behalf of each tenant. Using the Caller ID function SysAdmin’s can map a receptionist line to show the correct CLI.

For example:
Company A DID is 02 8910 7500
Company B DID is 02 8910 7600
Company C DID is 02 8910 7700

Using the Caller ID feature you can associate DID lines, not on your account which are then displayed as the Caller ID.

Line 1 02 8910 7501 -> 02 8910 7500
Line 2 02 8910 7502 -> 02 8910 7600
Line 3 02 8910 7503 -> 02 8910 7700
