IVR Menus Provide Options and Information for Callers
Given the different country requirements and specialized training of Transcript Research staff, routing callers based on their reason for calling is necessary to get callers to the right phone agent. For this, Transcript Research uses Telzio’s IVR Menu feature to record a greeting with a number of different options for callers to choose from.
With Telzio’s Call Flows, Transcript Research is able to easily layer multiple IVR Menus to guide callers through different options and information.
Peggy at Transcript Research says:
I love how easy it is for non-technical people to figure out how to create a phone tree.
Peggy goes on to say:
It’s really great for small business owners, especially since we have several remote workers, and it allows us to add and remove phone recipients with ease!
Phone Queues Route Calls to Remote Workers
With Telzio’s Queue feature, callers are routed to agents based in different locations, and are placed on a temporary hold if all agents are busy. Agents can sign in and out of Queues as they leave and arrive for work, and adding new agents to the Telzio system is free and easy.
By setting a maximum hold time, the company can avoid putting callers on hold for too long.
The recommended max hold time is 5 to 10 minutes, as studies show that callers tend to hang up after 9 minutes.
