Contact Center features
Smart call queues
VoipNow's call queues ensure that when all your agents are busy, calls will be kept on hold. Multiple options for call distribution are available so that you can choose what best fits your business. This includes ring all, least recently called, fewest calls, round robin with memory, ring members in the adding order, random, random with member penalty.
You can also provide an improved customer experience with history-based queue routing. When this feature is enabled, queues will first attempt to connect your callers to the agent they last talked to. This way, customers spend less time on the phone and agents are more efficient.
Other smart queue features:
- Announce how long the customer has been waiting in the queue
- Announce the customer's position in the queue
- Exit to operator on key press
- Transfer a call to a manager if the customer has been waiting in the queue for an extended period of time
Always ensure that the call is directed to the right department. The easy to use and configure IVR system directs callers to the appropriate department and simplifies call management, saving your company time and money.
With the advanced Call Interactive web service, you can even interact with the system every time the IVR places, receives or terminates a call. Integrate your IVR with customer support and payment applications or apps that make transfers to a specific resource based on customer behavior.
Monitor, whisper and barge in
Gain better control of how your call center works by enabling your supervisors to listen to active conversations with call monitor. Queue supervisors can also whisper to agents or barge in the call when needed. This feature proves particularly useful when training new agents or assisting them.
You can record phone calls automatically or on-demand, just by dialing a code during the phone conversation. Store agent calls to help with their training or review them at a later time.
Your agents have all the tools they need to provide great customer service, including hold, mute, park, call transfer (blind or attended transfer) and call forwarding.
Calls can be easily filtered by destination, while complying with local regulations and increasing customer satisfaction.
Dial by extension
When calling through the IVR, inbound callers can reach specific agents directly by entering the agent’s extension number
Your local agents can log into one or several queues at the same time and start helping your customers right away. You can also turn your best agents into supervisors, so they can help train other agents.
Use local and toll-free phone numbers from multiple countries. Expand your business globally, have agents on each location or even enable calls to be received on international phone numbers routed to your local agents.
Use your own music on hold and sounds, manage sound folders and sound languages.
Your agents do not need to be in the office to assist your customers. All they need is access to a desk phone or softphone. Once authenticated, they will start receiving calls from the queue. The call confirmation feature prevents automatic call answering mechanisms to get queue calls, which can be an issue when the agent is using a mobile phone.
FollowMe (Cascade) function
Thanks to this smart incoming call rule, every time a call comes in, your phone in the office, your home line and mobile phone will ring at the same time. Empower your mobile workforce and ensure that calls reach your agents, no matter where they are.
Hot-desking is easily achieved with extension virtualization. Any phone line in the system can be virtualized, enabling your teams to work in shifts and share the same desk and physical phone, while using their individual extension.
Reduce costs without compromising your level of control!
