Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between overhead paging and over the phone paging?

Overhead paging is used by dialing a 3-5 digit code or pushing a pre programmed button through your Siimplii phone. Your announcement is then broadcast over a paging horn or other paging equipment. Over the phone paging is dialed the same way, but is broadcast over another individual's phone, a group of phones, or all users phones.

What is Group Paging?

Group paging gives you the ability to broadcast an announcement through your phone to an entire department or any pre-determined group you have selected. You can have multiple paging groups that reach different departments, an individual, or your entire office.

Is there any additional cost for this feature?

Paging does not cost you anything extra. This feature is included in all Simplii packages. The only added cost would be for overhead paging system or paging horns. Over the phone paging is always free.
