Frequently asked questions
What is call routing?
Call routing places incoming calls in a queue, then automatically routes them to a specific person or department. You can preselect the criteria for call routing such as business hours and cascading order of customer care agents. The feature reduces the number of missed calls and makes sure the most suitable service agent tends to the call.
Routing calls involves setting the following criteria:
- Establishing your business hours
- Determining which messages to enable so customers can leave a voicemail or call back
- Assigning users and/or teams to call distribution
- Setting up the sequence in which you want agents to receive calls (e.g. to a senior sales rep first, thento a general sales hotline)
- Setting ring rules
- Setting forward-to-device
