Comms UK and Schools - Auto Attendant
Here at Comms UK we run a Mitel Phone System for schools called 'Auto Attendant' which sends special absence messages to the office. This software allows parents to phone in and let the school know that their child will be absent, even out of school hours. This means there is no waiting for staff to get into the office to answer calls, or bottlenecks at peak times when everyone tries to call in absences.
The 'Auto Attendant' software allows for a voice mail to be recorded on the system so the staff can pick it up when they are in, and can also send the message as an email, so others (eg. form tutors) know about the absence.
