Call Queues Management

Call Queue Meaning

A Call Queue is a virtual waiting room that offers the callers with an option of remaining on the call while they wait for an agent to answer. With call queue system, businesses can manage big call volumes with limited staff. Businesses can use prompts such as Music on Hold, special information, and messages about the business. Basically, call queues place incoming calls in line to be answered while representatives are busy with other calls.

Call Queue Scenario

Call Queue Scenario

Suppose someone is calling and the call goes into a queue. The rule is if the queue is empty, then call is forwarded to Joe, if Joe fails to answer, then it’s passed to Ricky. Now should Ricky be unavailable too, the system normally will pass on the call to the next available user, the call queue will go in a loop to retry Joe and Ricky

If one of them is available, then the call will be connected. In the meantime, the call queue can initiate a greeting or music or hold mentioning “you’ve been placed on hold, all our agents are currently busy assisting other customers, please wait for an available agent, thank you”.
