Improve Customer Service Satisfaction with 3CX Call Queues

Are you looking for ways to improve customer inbound call satisfaction? Look no further. Here at NCI Technologies we implement a call queue strategy using, you guessed it, our number one telecoms solution 3CX. Although some may not think much of call queues, when used correctly they can really add value to your business helping to improve customer service by ensuring you never miss a call. Even using perfectly chosen on hold music and customer messages as part of a call queue strategy has been shown to increase caller retention by up to 98%.

3CX call queues enable NCI Technologies to distribute incoming calls to specific resources within our business such as finance, sales, marketing or technical, allowing us to hold calls until a staff member becomes available. This enables us to take more calls than we can handle at any one time saving the need to employ additional staff.
