Call queueing is a concept used in inbound call centers. If the number of calls increase and no agent is available then system automatically puts the calls in a queue. It is that waiting area of calls where they are put on hold and some music or recording plays which tells them to wait until an agent become available to receive waiting call .
Press 1 campaign in ICTContact is the type of campaign where Call queuing is implemented. While running Press-1 Campaign ICTContact autodialer software calls a contact number from the list, On recipient pick-up, the ICTContact software plays a recorded message. If the recipient desire to speak with a live agent, he or she can press key "1" to progress the call with live agent.
The Call Queue feature allows call centres to manage incoming call volume in an orderly manner. This feature queues incoming calls and serves them to agents as they become available. Enjoy the ability to play music, advertising and messages while callers are waiting on hold for the next available representative. This feature will provide built-in Call center functionality in ICTContact including call queuing mechanism and you don’t need to integrate with another third-party call queuing system. Other than some basic queue specific parameters such as ring strategy, max waiting time and agent timeout, it has an agent selection box, where admin can select queue members for that Queue.
