Customer Service Tips for Call Queues:
Avoid long hold times. Using Call queues effectively can help distribute calls efficiently.
Set up a reasonable maximum queue hold time to strike a balance between answering as many calls as possible and reducing the amount of wait time.
Pay attention to how long your customers have been on the line and make sure you are patient with them. Try to avoid placing them on hold again if they have already been on hold for a long amount of time.
