Call Routing

Intelligent call routing can transform a potentially bad customer experience into successful and positive one. It means your agents are prepared for the next conversation and is much more likely to end with a satisfactory outcome for your customer.

Using Hostcomm's Intelligent Call Routing system, calls can easily be routed according to different variables including agent skills, campaigns, call priorities, telephone numbers or geographic origin. We’ll help you determine the best call routing strategies for your call centre and we’ll help you set it up.


Call Routing Methods


Flexible routing options

Direct routing, otherwise known as hunt groups, is the standard model for routing direct calls and is a great option for companies just getting started.

When your customers call a single number, the call gets distributed over several phone lines, which means less customer waiting time. These groups can be spread around the country or the world or even to agents working from home.

Route calls to the right agents

Some agents can be reluctant to take calls for whatever reason. Using Least Idle routing, the system can place calls to any agent who has been waiting the longest to take one.

And with Least Occupied routing, the next call is sent to whoever’s been least used throughout the day. This is a great way of preventing agents from putting themselves at the back of the queue.

Route calls to your best agents

Skills-based Routing is a way of routing calls to your most qualified agents. Intelligent call routing can allocate a specific number to agents - usually from one to ten - to denote their skills in a particular area.

This ensures your customers get through to an agent who is best placed to resolve their query. This method also protects new or less experienced staff from high call volumes as they gain knowledge and experience.

Set up call priorities for VIP customers

At busy times, it’s easy to route calls to additional call centre agents who are working in different areas or campaigns, or even different call centres.

Some customers may be more important to your company and require a faster response. Hostcomm can set up call priorities so the caller ID of a particular VIP customer is recognised and given higher priority.

Route calls by caller location

Call routing can tag each call with an indication of its origin. For example, the call may come from France and the system will alert the agent so they can answer in the appropriate language.

If required, the system can also play a short message to tell the agent where the call has come from before they're connected.

Tag calls by your business needs

Another way of helping and alerting the agent to the type of call they're about to receive is through a colour coding process. The call routing system can colour-code the inbound call based on information that you set up.

This could include location, product type or VIP customer and the agent knows instantly how to respond. Colour coding works well because agents can process this information faster than by reading a message.

Let customers choose an agent

Our inbound call routing system can give callers the option of selecting the agent they wish to speak to. If the agent’s already on a call, they'll be able to see that a queue is forming and react accordingly.

Hostcomm can provide callers with a unique PIN, allowing them to be routed through to a specific team.

Redirect nuisance calls

On occasion, call centres can receive nuisance calls. Not only can they be distressing for your agents, but can also have a negative impact on the overall customer experience by taking up valuable call time.

It's possible to create the routing of such calls by sending nuisance callers into a separate queue or to a voicemail service where they can leave a message.

Queue Call Backs

Your customers don’t like waiting in queues. And your agents don’t like dealing with customers who have been kept waiting.

The Hostcomm Contact Centre solution can help smooth peaks in call volumes and reduce the length of time customers are required to wait in a queue. This is achieved using queue callback technology. The contact centre uses the inbuilt predictive dialler to create the ability to automate an outbound call.

Customers in the queue to request a callback. When an agent becomes available, the callback is automatically dialled and passed to the agent when it is connected.
