Ring Groups Scenario in PBX

Let’s suppose a small company which has just four employees sets up a team which has all four employees in it. Whenever there is an incoming call all four extensions of each employee rings together. Thus whoever receives the call first takes the call. You can also set up a ring group in which the phone rings a particular order so the work is equally distributed among the employees.

On the other hand, if there is a large company with different departments. The company can set up a ring group for every team. You can set up a team with both aspects to ring in order or to ring all at once according to your business needs.
