Verizon's Custom Redirect Service (CRS) is a comprehensive call routing service that helps customers effectively manage call center resources, improve customer service, and simplify continuity planning. CRS uses the Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN) to redirect incoming voice calls to a telephone number selected by the administrator. Customers can establish up to nine sets of call routing criteria by time of day or week, percentage allocation, incoming number, or custom application. The administrator can easily activate routing plans by using a touchtone keypad.

CRS enhances customer service and helps drive revenues by allowing customers to direct incoming traffic to the most effective call handling location based on customer determined criteria. This flexibility benefits customers that need to control hold times, match callers with the right resources, and provide 24x7coverage.

In addition to the improved customer service and productivity gains, Custom Redirect Service helps drive efficiencies by allowing customers to supplement in-house call center staff with staff located at alternative call centers.

Another critical reason for customers to consider Custom Redirect Service is that CRS can play an important role in Disaster Recovery planning. In the event of an emergency, CRS can route inbound traffic to alternative locations to insure Business Continuity. Customers can redirect calls from one center to another using a predetermined routing plan to meet urgent traffic needs

Intra-LATA Toll allows 1+ dialing within a local access and transport area (LATA) in all states except Alaska. Prospective customers have the option to choose Verizon for local toll with their local services or bypass the non-Verizon local exchange carrier (LEC) and have Verizon carry their Intra-LATA Toll traffic without any special equipment or manual dialing.

A LATA is a designated LEC long distance toll area. LATAs are not related to area codes, but there may be cases where area codes and LATA boundaries coincide, although this is not generally the case. LATA boundaries can cross state lines where area codes cannot. Intra-LATA Toll (Local Toll) under this definition is often called the short distance call market or intraLATA calling.

There are two types of Intra-LATA Toll. The first type is priced and billed with the local service in the regulated local footprint. The second type is priced and billed with the long distance service.

Outbound Long Distance includes U.S. domestic and international outbound calls placed outside of the local calling area. When a caller dials a one, followed by an area code and a seven-digit local telephone number, the "one" tells the local switch that the call is a long-distance call. The switch sends the call to the appropriate carrier, which transports the call to the local carrier determined by the area code, and the local carrier terminates the call to the end-user using the seven-digit telephone number. The billing system, IBRS, provides the advantage of combining voice, data, and Internet on one invoice.
