If you are not available, callers can leave a voicemail message. We will send this recorded message as a sound file to your e-mail address, or to several addresses at the same time. The maximum duration of a recorded message is 2 minutes and 15 seconds. You can easily play your voicemail on your computer, tablet, or smartphone by clicking on the sound file in the attachment of the e-mail. This module is free of charge.

No more ‘calling’ your voicemail

The benefit of the Voicemail option from Voys is the fact that a recorded voicemail will be sent to your e-mail address. This way you can save the voicemail in your customer file or easily transfer it to a colleague!

Standard messages

When you choose a standard message you can choose your language and the kind of voice you want to play (male or female). The message in English is as follows:

  • At this moment, all our employees are not reachable by phone. Please leave a message after the tone and we will contact you as soon as possible.”

Example messages

Of course, it is possible to record your own voicemail messages. Below you will find some suggestions for messages that you can record.
