NEC’s Hotel/Motel Attendant Console provides regular business call handling and processing capabilities as well as functions relevant and necessary for a hospitality environment. The console incorporates powerful call processing functions, a compact design and easy-to-use features that will enable you to quickly answer and route calls.
The first 12 pages of this User Guide describe the keys, lamps and display on the console. The rest of the guide explains how to process calls using the features and functions the console supports.
