Queue callback is an added feature that can improve the customer experience and reduce abandoned calls. When inbound call center volumes approach capacity or, preset limits, enabling queue callback gives customers the option to be contacted by an agent at their next earliest convenience. Giving customers the power to choose to hold and wait or, receive a callback can reduce caller frustrations allowing agents to prioritize callers and wait times and give customers the power to make decisions over their valuable time.
Queue Callback Aids Agent Effectiveness
Placing a caller on virtual hold, or, using IVR, giving the customer the option to choose to hold or, receive an agent callback, gives agents the opportunity to return to the customer at a more convenient time for both parties, enhancing the experience for both. Agents can be more effective when they have the “extra” time to review a customer case or, client history and approach the callback with a more enhanced view and better information. Empower agents with queue callback and reduce call abandonment!
Virtual Queueing = A Priority Parking Lot!
Prioritize callers with queue callback according to preset rules. Allocate priority based on previous wait time, original call intention and more. Your call center has effectively parked customers in a comfy waiting spot ready to talk to an agent at a newly available time that suits both the call center operations availability and, the customer’s convenience. Reduce abandoned calls by giving the caller the power to choose how they continue the conversation.
Customized Call Routing
Reducing abandoned calls is possible when using customized call routing. Customize ACD call center software using skills-based agent rules, volume rules, geographic location of the customer or, call center and inbound caller intention. Is the caller inquiring about a sale, perhaps a customer support question, a compliant or other? Where is the customer calling from, and, if your call center has CRM integrations, identify the type of caller with their profile history and allocate a customized call routing rule for any of those instances.
Reducing Dropped Calls
Avoiding dropped calls and low inbound connection rates is possible with call center software such as queue callback and virtual queueing. Customers are given the option through an IVR to continue to wait, or, choose a time to be called back and input additional details to ensure a successful caller connection and customer experience.
