You may not guess if you have been in a queue or the purpose of queues in call center by their name but you sure have been in a queue if you called any customer care services and you were put on hold or asked to wait. The call queue is where customers are placed after completing any interactive voice response prompts but before a call center representative has spoken with them. In more casual terms, this would often be referred to as “being on hold". Call queues are central to the effectiveness of call centers and customer service. Call centers use a variety of methods, tools, and practices to lower the average time that a caller spends in the call queue. The goal is to have the lowest average call queue time possible,as nobody likes to be on hold or stuck on the phone. When someone calls for customer service, they want prompt service and quick responses. The longer someone is stuck in a caller queue, the less happy and satisfied they are going to be.
