- Queuing – Calls are queued when all agents are busy, with the associated entrance announcement, music or video on hold. Also, periodic comfort messages are played to the caller while they wait.
- Queued Call Prioritization – Calls in queue can be prioritized based on their time in the queue and the number they dialed (through the Dialed Number Identification Service, or DNIS).
- Customized Audio Greetings and Announcements – While they are waiting, callers can hear targeted greetings and announcements based upon the number they dialed.
- Conditional Routing – Calls are rerouted based on various conditions, such as bounced calls, stranded calls, calls that have waited too long or calls that reach a call center with an excessive number of queued calls.
- Agent and Supervisor Clients – The intuitive interface provides greater agent productivity and management supervision.
- Dashboard – Real-time monitoring tracks current state and current performance of agents and queues.
