Call Routing

What is call routing?

Call routing is a feature that automatically distributes incoming calls of your customers to a specific agent, department or a queue based on your preferred criteria inside of your cloud based call center software. Companies can gain the complete control over the flow of the inbound calls by defining the conditions and choosing if they will be distributed randomly or assigned to an agent with the highest priority. 

Call routing is also know as Automated Call Distribution (ACD).

Call Routing

Who benefits from the call routing?

Businesses of all sizes that receive incoming calls on a regular basis and want to provide the best customer service can enjoy the benefits of implemented call routing. 

Medium-sized businesses, large and enterprise companies can benefit from the priority assignment to make sure, that all calls are handled by skilled agents in the right department. Deploying other features of the built-in call center such as internal calls, IVR or call tranfers can increase the benefits even better.

Small businesses, solopreneurs and freelancers can take advantage of random assignment and other advanced features of call center such as video chat or IVR.

How does call routing work?

Call routing, or automated call distribution, appears each time an inbound call is initiated by your customers. At the beginning, they hear an automatic welcoming message or a request to stay on the phone and wait until one of the agents is assigned. If there are customers already waiting in a queue, they hear the music and are asked to stay online. Once they queue is cleared the call starts.
