Unused Extensions often reflect employees that have moved from one department to another, or individuals that are no longer employed. Instead of purchasing additional phones/phone cards when adding new employees, use Microcall to identify any ‘unused’ extensions. These unused extensions can be reassigned to new employees, helping to reduce needless spending. In addition, unnecessary monthly trunk costs can be eliminated by having Microcall pinpoint ‘unused’ trunks, and doing away with the costly fees for trunks that are not even being used.
