How to Manage Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) Queues | Contact Centers

Automatic Call Distribution queues put callers into a queue and typically play Music on Hold or custom announcement messages to keep them informed or relaxed while they wait for an agent to become available.

  • Studies prove that a caller listening to Music on Hold will stay on hold longer than a caller hearing a ring back tone
  • Agents are typically employees of a contact center that login to one or more queues in order to answer callers.
