Business phone systems are the most important tool in call centers in Texas. Call centers need to be able to handle a large amount of inbound calls and to be able to get the callers to the correct department. Business phone systems also need to be able to provide self service options for customers calling a company.

Call centers in Texas rely extensively on automatic call distribution systems. These systems route incoming calls to the call center agents and can also distribute calls originated by the outbound auto dialer. Routing calls to the appropriate individual is a critical function of a call center phone system.

Call centers in Texas use a basic ACD system that processes incoming telephone calls on a first-come, first-served basis. The phone system answers each call and if necessary, holds it in a queue until it can be directed to the next available answering service representative. The call is directed to the next available representative.

Sophisticated call software manages multiple call queues, keeps a log of call group activity, monitors call activity such as call queues, agents, and on hold times. Callers dialing a specified number can be routed to a high priority queue or a specific department such as sales or problem resolution. The ultimate goal of a call center’s phone system is to serve every caller quickly and efficiently to meet very customer’s expectations. Most Texas call center phone systems include an interactive voice response solution. The customers waiting in a queue can listen to recorded announcements, music and weather and news channel information using our Text To Speech Software. Thresholds can also be used to minimize delays and divert calls to alternate queues if the wait is too long.

The call center phone systems also have built in software to produce report about the callers and also accountability for the agent. The calls can be recorded for quality assurance and training purposes. Also, if management has a question about how a call was handled, it can be reviewed. Several reports can be produced from this software. These reports can vary from customer contact information to agent productivity. Everything the agent does from logging into the system to logging out at the end of the shift can be produced in reports.
