Chess Divert

Temporarily diverting your calls from your current premises to a new inbound number allows you to manage incoming calls and maintain workflow.
85% of people whose calls are not answered will not call back
80% of all business communications take place over the phone
95% of people share their bad experience with a company with at least one other person

Missed calls = Lost sales 

Being able to manage business calls from anywhere, either on a temporary or permanent basis, is an essential aspect of business continuity.  

Your phone is your most important tool for generating cash for your business and  every missed call costs you in lost sales.  

With Chess Divert, calls can easily be diverted to different people, and to multiple locations. Schedule in advance when you'd like calls to divert, or change them instantly with the push of a button. You can keep the same ring groups and call groups as you’d have in an office, and your people can leave or join groups with just a click. 

Key Features of Chess Divert

Call Distribution 

Using Number Manager Destination Options you can distribute incoming calls

Audio Playback 

This pre-recorded message reduces the number of calls which don’t require direct assistance, saving you unnecessary costs and freeing up lines in your business for sales calls

Call Whisper

Call Whisper plays a short message which identifies business calls, but which isn’t audible to the caller, before connecting the call.

Choose to Accept

The opportunity to accept a call avoids a call going to voicemail, and potentially getting lost.

Optional Add-Ons

Chess Divert +


In addition to the features and benefits of Chess Divert, Divert+ includes ‘Agent Ready’, a mobile & web app that allows remote workers to log themselves in and out of hunt groups, and allows them to decide when and where their calls are sent.
