About the Company

The PersonalOffice system was established in 1998. The PersonalOffice system provides a comprehensive, feature-rich, user-friendly menu of communication services directly to end users.

We utilize a unique enhanced telecommunications-switching platform, which enables us to offer a single point of access for all enhanced services. This access can be toll-free and personalized to each user.

Proprietary services such as “Virtual PBX” (multiple toll-free forwarding sub-menu-platforms) are offered off the enhanced services platform. We can also provide credit and debit billing options to facilitate budget forecasting.

Communication is vital in business. PersonalOffice provides a suite of solutions which will help your business run at its most efficient level. With one simple number, customers can reach you anywhere, anytime. By using our Auto Attendent, you receive all the features of a full PBX, but without the high cost of equipment and installation. The International Calling Card allows you or your employees to make international calls from mobile phones with great rates. Best of all, these services can be purchased a la carte; or, in a bundle, offering you a complete portfolio of communications products for one low price.

Here is how it works:

Callers are greeted by a professional Auto Attendant and are given different options. For example:

  • The system can transfer calls into a regular voice mail box.
  • The system can play a prerecorded message. Example: Thank you for inquiring about our product. Let me tell you all that it can do for you.
  • The system can connect to a particular individual wherever they may be even if they are out of the country and that individual can then screen who is calling them before accepting the call.
  • The system can store a fax document in memory and callers have the capability of downloading those documents to their fax machine through the main greeting.
  • The system allows callers to fax information into a company from the main greeting.
  • The system can also page out to notify you that someone is trying to call you or that they left you a voice mail.
  • The system can also forward calls from the main greeting to different locations. Example: If a company has an office in Boston and an office in Chicago customers can call one main number and transfer to either location from the main greeting.

One Number

The U.S. census reveals that 75% of all calls made during any given day never reach the intended party on the first try; thus creating voicemail phone tag.

Unlike other telecommunications services, PersonalOffice locates the subscriber by sending a page notification and dialing three Follow-me numbers simultaneously(Cellular, Office, home, etc) wherever they may be.

All calls provide caller identification and pager notification so that the subscriber can choose which calls to connect live to, which calls to let go to voicemail and which calls to redirect elsewhere. With a PersonalOffice One-Number account, the subscriber is aware of all attempted connections and is in control of all communication transactions.

Our intelligent telecommunications platform offers the most feature-rich, easy-to-use value-added service solutions available today. Most importantly, all services are tied to one personal, toll-free telephone number that serves as a single point of access for all communications transactions.

Call Connect

With PersonalOffice's Call Connect feature, callers who choose to connect live with the subscriber are prompted to "Please hold while I attempt to locate your party". Instantly, the subscriber is notified via pager and/or up to three predetermined follow-me numbers, that a caller is holding live. Caller ID and call screening are also a part of the Call Connect service.

If one of your follow-me numbers rings, you will be told who is holding for you immediately upon answering the call. If you then press "1" you will be instantly connected to the calling party.

If you are notified on your pager that there is a caller holding, you simply dial your PersonalOffice toll-free number, press the " * " key and follow the user-friendly instructions.

In both cases, you will have the option to redirect the caller to another number or to voicemail.

Key Benefits

  • You always know who is calling you and when
  • You are in control of who you connect with and who goes to voicemail
  • You can travel at will while calls simply follow you
Follow Me

By designating follow-me numbers, subscribers direct calls to be delivered to their office, home, mobile telephone numbers or any other location where the subscriber wishes to be reached. Subscribers may change their follow-me numbers at any time by logging into their account. Most importantly, PersonalOffice redirects all callers to three follow-me numbers simultaneously; unlike other providers that try one location at a time, forcing the caller to hold for several minutes.

Key Benefits

  • Travel at will and your calls follow you
  • All three locations ring simultaneously
  • Always know who is trying to contact you
  • Music on hold

Key Benefits

  • No need to memorize important numbers
  • Instant dialing with the push of one button

Caller ID

PersonalOffice subscribers can screen calls several ways. As callers are prompted to identify themselves with their name, you always know who is holding. A caller already in voicemail can be further screened by listening while the message is being recorded. This feature enables the subscriber to determine the urgency of the call, allowing them to accept the call, redirect the call accordingly or leave the caller in voicemail. To accept the call subscribers simply press "1" for call connect. Voicemail, faxmail and e-mail messages also provide caller ID so subscribers know who sent the message and if the message is urgent.

Key Benefits

  • You know who is calling or leaving a message
  • You control how calls are handled
  • You know the urgency of the message
