Telephony PINs

Telephony Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) allow your organization to authorize telephone usage, and to distribute telephone costs among different users, departments, or facilities.

Telephony PINs are also referred as Forced Authorization Codes (FAC) or Forced Access Codes in some organizations.

For example, a company might require employees to enter a PIN along with a phone number to make a long distance or toll call. Vocera's telephony PIN feature automatically adds a PIN to the dialing sequence when a user places a call that requires this PIN. In addition to long distance and toll calls, a PIN is also used for long distance forwarding, transferring, and paging.

Note: A user cannot make toll calls—and telephony PINs have no effect if the user is not a member of a group that allows toll calls.
