Do you have busy times when the calls coming into your company exceed the number of staff you have answering calls? This is where our Call Queuing system can be of benefit to your business.
Our online system can detect that your line is engaged and keeps the caller in a queue until the line becomes free. The caller will either hear a ringing tone, music, or a series of information messages while they wait. The caller is also informed of their position within the queue until an operator becomes available.
No Equipment Needed
We offer a hosted solution with no maintenance or installation costs and instant set up. You can queue using multiple number destinations in addition to your office, such as; home-workers, answering services or different extensions within the office.

A box office for a local theatre had just one incoming telephone line. Callers booking tickets would often receive an engaged tone, especially at busy times when a new play was announced or the monthly newsletter was sent out. By using a remote queuing system, the box office staff were able to greatly improve the efficiency with which calls were dealt. A recorded message that was played to the callers reminded them that tickets could be purchased through their website and this increased the website visitors and bookings. An overflow system was put in place so that when there were more than 4 people queuing the call would divert to a call centre that used the website to take bookings. The theatre soon found that their performances were selling out much faster and their patrons were much happier.
