22 Inbound Call Centre Features
22 Inbound Call Centre Features
There are a multitude ways to set up an inbound call centre, but the core configurations are based around a simple premise, get your most valuable customer (the one who is calling you!) to the right person in the shortest space of time and give them an experience that they will want to tell others about, promoting your business by word of mouth.
In this article, we are going to review some of the features that Com2 can help you add to an inbound call centre for your business
These features are available on both Cloud Contact Centre platforms as well as On Premise Call Centre solutions and Com2 Communications will consult with you to identify which solution would suit you most.
IVR – Interactive Voice Response
The quickest way to reduce staffing costs and improve customer service is to get your customers to the right person the first time. Route high value callers into the correct departments first whilst low value transactions can be automated to free up incoming call queues,
Repeat Caller Recognition
A smart inbound solution recognizes a repeat caller and where appropriate puts them to the head of the queue to attempt to speak to the last agent they spoke to so that the customer experience is not just better, but the best!
Routing based on Data
By accessing internal and/or external databases, your contact centre solution can deliver an individual experience to a customer and direct their call according to their history with your organization or based on caller ID or area of originating call
Last Agent Contact
Last Agent Contact directs your customer back to the agent who was looking after them, especially if they have been given higher priority based on a current open service ticket, or just because they are a high value customer. Over delivery to your most valued customers goes a long way!
Routing calls based on Agent Skill Level should be at the core of an effective inbound strategy. Customer satisfaction surveys have found that customers who get to the right person within 60 seconds are the biggest promoters of your company and your rating is even higher if there is no wait at all. Skills based routing assists by getting customers to an expert for their inquiry. Talk to our team to find out how to implement this strategy in your contact centre.
Callback in Queue
When your customer is on hold, you can give them a choice to take advantage of Callback in Queue. They can opt to have an agent call them back while retaining their place in your queue.
Peak Call Load Spreading
Utilising the callback in queue feature, you can spread your peak loads to less busy periods and improve the customer interaction by having the last agent they spoke to return their call.
