Masergy Anywhere service provides a user with a single number precedence where you give out one number, your Masergy number. All incoming calls on your mobile phone or your desk can be answered and switched easily between mobile and desk phone(s) during live calls. The Masergy Anywhere works with your user and the Masergy Anywhere portal number.
Multiple selective criteria can also be configured for each Masergy Anywhere location. A new call leg is created for each Masergy Anywhere location similar to a call termination. The Masergy Anywhere location’s selective criteria are considered for these scenarios. The Masergy Anywhere user service works in conjunction with the Masergy Anywhere portal. A user can enable or disable a Masergy Anywhere location from the web portal or by using the Location Control feature access codes.
The following attributes are also configurable for each Masergy Anywhere location:
- Enable diversion
- Require Answer confirmation
- Use Masergy-based call control services
In addition to these options, the user can configure Masergy Anywhere locations to be alerted for Click-to-Dial calls. The Alert all locations for Click-to-Dial call attribute applies to all Masergy Anywhere locations. The default state of Masergy Anywhere is “On” and the default state of the alert for Click-to-Dial calls is “On”. The default state of the other options is “Off”.
To use this service for incoming calls from your desk phone: simply answer.
From your mobile device: Answer the calls, press any key to connect (if you enabled Require Answer Confirmation) and start talking.
For outgoing calls from your desk phone simply call out.
From your mobile device call the Masergy Anywhere portal number and then enter your extension and voicemail passcode. You’ll get a dial tone and then enter the number you wish to call. It will look like you are calling from your Masergy phone back in the office.
Switching between phones is quite easy. From your mobile to desk phone simply dial *11 and keep talking. And from desk phone to mobile simply call the Masergy Anywhere number and enter your extension and voicemail passcode. You’ll get a dial tone, then dial *11 and start talking.
