How to create a SIMS advanced service?

Learn how to route a call to one or more destinations with SecureCo Inbound Management Studio

Step 1. 

After login, in Services, click Create New Service button.

Step 2.

In the Create New Service modal window, select the client account you wish from the drop-down menu. Next, select Advanced Service and then click Confirm to continue.SimpleService_Advanced1

Step 3. 

You can start configuring the simple service by entering a name. This name is used for identification purposes.

Step 4. 

Next, assign numbers from your account to the new service. One or more DDI numbers can be attached to the service. You can search for numbers or filter by category.SimpleService_Advanced2

Step 5. 

Configure destinations by entering the Group Name and selecting the Call Type from the following options.

    If you have more than one destination number, all calls will be routed to the first number in the list, then the second and so on. To change the list order of numerous destinations, simply click and drag them into position.
    This option will route all calls to all destinations simultaneously.
    This option allows for a certain percentage of all calls to be directed to a destination number. For example, if a destination number has a ratio set at 10%, one in ten calls will be routed to it.
    This option will route the first call to the first destination, which, if unanswered, will be routed to the second destination. However, the second call will not be routed to the first destination  (as it would with Call in List Order) but to the second. The same is true of the third, fourth and so on.
    The call will be routed to an audio message rather than a target number.

Step 6. 

Enter destination numbers and set Ringing Time (in seconds) for each number. Finally, you can optionally set the Availability. Learn more about setting out-of-hours.

Step 7.

Once you have configured your destinations, you must choose and configure any extras to be associated with the service. Activate any additional features required on the service by sliding the buttons to ON position. Any required configuration settings will be displayed.
