XCast Labs introduces the ACD Callback Option for Hosted PBX service.
This feature gives callers the option to wait for an agent or hang up, while still maintaining their place in queue, and receive a callback when they get to the front of the queue.
If a callback from ACD fails (Busy, No-Answer) there will be 2 more attempts to reach the caller, with a 10-minute delay between attempts.
To begin using, a customer will need to set up their ACD queue on the ACD tab. The manual is available for download on our VCP support tab. For questions, please contact support at 800-254-3109 or to set up a new account, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call Blocking at its finest! Our newly released unique and patent protected feature provides end users complete call management.
When this call blocking feature is enabled, callers are prompted to press a digit before being connected. Every time someone successfully completes the CAPTCHA, their number will automatically get added to your Contact list. The system remembers their response so they will not be continually presented with that message. Calls that can’t dial a digit will be disconnected.
Also, you can add contacts in advance to your Contact list. This will allow these authorized callers to bypass Captcha. This could be your pharmacy, doctors’ office, or school that send automated messages that can’t dial the Captcha. Get the calls you want and skip the ones you don’t.
The CONTACTS TAB replaced the Speed Dial tab and is a collaboration with Captcha. Here you can assign special attributes to calls – speed dial, type of call rejection, ring style, Do Not Disturb, and robocall screening.
Captcha is available to PBX and Single-line customers.
Do not accept calls from anonymous callers –
No Caller ID, no problem. We have an option for that too. If an inbound call is not signed, such as international calls or the attestation level is below A, the call will be sent to voicemail. These call blocking features are located in the Features tab of the Voice Control Panel.
For assistance adding this feature to your existing service, please contact email@example.com or 800-254-3109. For new customers, please reach out to our sales department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 844-853-3390.

Utilize Microsoft Teams as a primary or secondary device with your Hosted PBX or SIP Trunk account.
Features include instant messaging, voice and video calls, document sharing, and many more!
How does it work? Direct Routing allows users to place outbound calls from within Teams, and when such calls are made they will be routed through their PBX or Trunk account, utilizing the service plans and rates that are active on that account.
It also allows a user to receive calls, within Teams, that are placed to a phone number on the PBX or Trunk that has been associated with that Teams user.
The MS Teams Mobile App provides a user the capability to chat and receive or place outbound calls using their PBX extension on their Android and Apple devices.
Do I need a Microsoft Office 365 license? Yes You can use Office 365 – E1, E3, and E5 licensing. The E5 license includes a Microsoft Common Phone add-on license. With E1 and E3 you need to procure additional Microsoft Common Phone add-on licenses – which allow you to use your existing XCast Labs service that provides higher quality at a lower price than Microsoft voice service.
