features, numbers of different phone contacts will be attempted to reach the right person. Here is an
analogy to clearly understand the functionality of the features. The system is fed with the two different
numbers of the doctor, one is mobile number and other is a residential landline number. Now, when
someone calls at the doctor's desk and if it is not answered, the call will be forwarded to his mobile
number, if the doctor failed to reply there, the call will be routed to the residential telephone number. It
means the system will try to find and follow the person to assure the max possible reachability.
