find me/follow me

Telephone services that provide advanced call forwarding. Initially developed for the circuit-switched Intelligent Network (IN), voice over IP (VoIP) also provides such services. "Find me" forwards calls either in sequence or at the same time to a list of numbers. "Follow me" forwards calls to numbers based on a time schedule. Both functions are typically offered in the same service package. See unified messaging.



unified messaging

Having access to email, voicemail and faxes via a common computer application or by telephone. For example, unified messaging may send faxes and digitized voicemail to a mail server that turns them into email attachments. Audio-based systems convert email messages to speech (text-to-speech) in order to deliver messages to a desk phone or cellphone. See unified communications and text-to-speech.
