Overflow Call Handling Services

What is an Overflow Call Handling Service

Your business may already have an in-house team of call agents that meet most of your customers calls needs, however, there may be holiday periods, peak hours of a day or more seasonal busy periods where call numbers increase above the average and your customer’s calls are not being answered efficiently or effectively.
