Automatic Call Distribution (ACD)
Intelligently route calls to the agent most qualified to handle the customer's needs. ACD can route calls either through pre-determined rules or advanced call distribution algorithms.
Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
Use touch-tone signaling or voice recognition to automate the retrieval and processing of caller information by phone. Administrators can configure the IVR with multiple branches to improve the identification, segmentation, and routing of callers to qualified agents.
Route calls to the most appropriate agent according to a series of factors, including the time of day, customer priority, IVR outcomes, and skill-based routing (SBR). Voicemails can be routed to agents during quiet call periods.
Callers can be routed to a queue or placed on hold until an agent becomes available.
