Traditional, landline-based, call centres can be very expensive to run, which for years made them an exclusive advantage for large companies that could afford such extra expenses. This is no longer the case. New VoIP technology has allowed modern businesses of all sizes to enjoy a call centre solution at a very affordable price.

VoIP is a cloud-based telephone system. Thus, you don’t need to install more physical lines in your company premise or invest in a larger office. A good internet connection and IP telephones are all you need to run an effective call centre and increase your customers’ satisfaction.

Here are some of the many benefits that a VoIP call centre offers to modern businesses:

The auto attendance feature gives your clients a better impression of your business and guides them through your different services. You can also add to the menu information about your business’ working hours, holidays or even send your clients to a voice mailbox when necessary.

Call Queuing

A call queuing feature ensures that your clients’ calls will be answered even if all the lines in your company are busy. The calls will be held on a queue waiting for the next available agent to answer them. Your clients can enjoy your choice of on-hold music and get information about how far they are on the queue and estimated waiting time.

This feature is especially important for small business which usually have a limited number of staff and can struggle at peak times to answer all incoming calls at once. You will be rest assured that you won’t lose valuable clients because all the lines were busy.

Click-to-Dial from CRM Databases

This feature is for companies that have a CRM database on their computers that maintains their contact records about people and other companies. VIP VoIP call centre offers you the ability to click on a phone number directly on your computer screen and trigger a call to that person without the need to dial that number manually on your telephone. VIP VoIP system will dial that number and make the phone on your desk ring. All you need to do is pick up your handset and wait for the other person to answer.

  • How many calls your staff have answered today, this week or even this month.
  • How many calls they have made.
