How to Enable Weighted Call Routing

Why You Should Use Weighted Routing



Weighted ringing offers several advantages for businesses looking to optimize their call routing and improve overall efficiency:

✨ Skill-based Routing: You can assign weights based on agent skills and expertise. Agents with a higher weight in a specific area are more likely to receive calls related to that topic, leading to faster resolution times and improved customer satisfaction.

✨ Workload Balancing: Weighted ringing helps distribute calls more evenly among agents. Agents with a lighter workload can be assigned a higher weight, ensuring calls are answered promptly. This prevents situations where some agents are overloaded while others are idle.

✨ Agent Specialization: By assigning higher weights to agents specializing in certain areas, you can encourage them to develop their expertise further. This can lead to a team of highly skilled agents who can effectively handle complex inquiries.
