Overflow Call Handling Services
Struggling to manage sharp rises in call traffic? Give your clients the best experience and minimise staffing costs with overflow call handling
Many customer service departments suffer from variable contact volumes where customer calls can be missed on a regular basis, or at peak trading periods. After all, not all businesses want to, can afford to or have the office space to have members of staff dedicated to call handling duties.
This could be due to high call volumes during busy times due to peak promotional periods, due to seasonality or just staff absences. Why take the risk? Negative customer experiences are much more likely to be advertised and this situation is completely avoidable with outsourcing overflow call handling.
