Ameyo’s Automatic Call Distribution software routes the calls to agents irrespective of their work location and helps you provide an enriching customer experience.
For seamless call handling, ACD routes the call to an agent-based on business hours, call traffic, customer’s past interactions, behavioral transactions, and customer preference, ensuring that each caller gets a unique experience.
Automatic Call Distributor (ACD) distributes the calls to the right agents on the basis of predefined parameters to help the caller reach the best-suited agent, ensuring that the customer’s query is resolved instantly.

During peak call volumes, allow your users to get notified about their queue position and expected wait time until the next available agent will assist them. Call routing software Let the caller request for a callback when the agent becomes available or allows them to hold their position without having to stay on the phone using virtual queueing (VQ) technology.

Intelligently route the customers with Automatic Call Distributor software, based on their recent transactions or behavioral history. The customer who has recently made a purchase will be played a different IVR and will be routed to a different queue compared to someone who has not purchased it recently.

ACD Route the customers to the same agent they talked to within the configurable time period with call routing algorithms. If an agent was connected with a customer, and she/he calls again within the configurable time, the preference will be given to route the customer to the same agent they talked to earlier. The agent will already be well-informed about the issue and take less time to resolve it.
In case of critical issues, throw the call to all and any available agent irrespective of their skill or transaction/behavior of the customer. This is incredibly helpful in situations when you cannot afford to make the customer wait or when any delay can have significant consequences, like in the case of the healthcare sector with Automatic Call Distributor.
