Therefore, ACD is a perfect choice for any customer support service.
Basically, Automatic Call Distribution system is used especially when there are high volumes of messages and calls which need complex routing rules to find the most suitable agent to handle every call.
In other words, inbound calls are combined into one queue and are eventually distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis to an agent who has been inactive for the longest period. This offers your call center agents with the equal workload and offers your clients or callers with the best service. Besides, you are able to set the right parameters to overflow telephone calls to a different group of agents, should the calls volume surpasses the amount your call center can handle within a specific period.
