In terms of outbound calling, account codes are used for tracking purposes. Usually, this feature is requested and used by businesses like law firms or agencies when calls are billed to a specific client.
Anytime 099 is dialed before a destination number, the system will ask the user to enter an account code. The system will accept any number and combination of digits for the account code (it’s not verified). After the account code is entered, the system will announce to the caller, "Your call is now being transferred" and the call will be connected.
The account code will then be displayed in the Call History for the call. The purpose of the feature is not to restrict calling, but rather to allow callers to associate a client with a call for reporting purposes.
