On hold no more: top 5 benefits of callback from queue - Zendesk - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

On hold no more: top 5 benefits of callback from queue

No one likes to be put on hold. In fact, according to a survey from Google, 60% of customers think 1 minute is too long to wait on hold. But the good news is that callback from queue—functionality that allows callers to opt out of waiting on hold and request a callback when an agent becomes available, without losing their place in the queue—ensures that your customers don’t have to be put on hold if they don’t want to. There are many benefits to introducing callback from queue into your phone support operations, including:

1. Improve customer experience: 75% of customers prefer a callback option to waiting on hold. When you give your callers the option to request a callback instead of waiting on hold to speak with a live agent, you demonstrate that you value their time, a courtesy that boosts customers’ impression of your service and results in higher customer satisfaction.

2. Reduce abandoned calls: When facing long wait times, callers often give up and call back later, resulting in a high number of abandoned calls—a sure sign of frustrated customers—and repeat calls—which can strain already busy queues at later times. Studies show that callback from queue can reduce abandoned calls at least 32%, so your customers can connect with live agents without increasing call volumes.

3. Manage high volumes: Because customers don’t mind waiting a bit longer for a callback if it means less time on hold, you and your team can use callback from queue to smooth out spikes in call volume without hiring more agents, whether those call spikes are hourly, weekly, or seasonal.

4. Decrease costs: When your customers are waiting in the queue, you’re paying per minute for that hold time. If your customers can skip the hold time, it’s less expensive for your customers, and for you. For example: even if you only pay a $0.01 for your wait time (as you do on Zendesk Talk) , if your average wait time is 10 minutes, and you receive about 100 calls a day, you could save over $200 a month just by eliminating customer wait times with callback.

5. Boost employee morale: Lastly, callback from queue can help improve the agent experience. When callers haven’t had to wait on hold a long time to reach an agent, they are more likely to be in a better mood when speaking with your staff. That reduces stress on your agents and helps them resolve your customers’ issues quickly and happily.

Start benefitting from callback from queue—this new feature is now available on the Advanced plan of Zendesk Talk.
