Automatic Call Distribution (A.C.D.)

ACD is the scheme to distribute incoming traffic load among agents who
have the same skill set. Our consultants have strong background in scripting
and programing so they can extremely modify ACD scheme as per
requirements. Generally we implement following algorithm themes;
• Ring all ring - all available agents until someone answers
• Round robin take - turns ringing each available agent
• Least recent ring - the agent which was least recently called by certain queue
• Fewest calls ring - the agent with the fewest completed calls from the queue
• Random ring - any agent randomly
• Campaign Rank: orders by the rank given to the agent for the campaign. - Highest to Lowest.
• Incoming calls are properly distributed among service agents.
• Underloaded - agent can attend more calls.
• Remarkably Improve the service agent performance.
