A: Yes. It is best that you give us a demonstration of your software so we know how your office works.
A: Yes. We keep our servers at a secure data center and have generators, battery backup, redundant service providers, etc. We have taken numerous steps to ensure we are operational regardless of natural and man-made disasters.
A: Yes. Contact One provides a range of call reports. Our reporting software can give our clients a view of call patterns by day/week/month and even hourly reports. We can also customize reports to meet your needs.
A: We can start taking calls in as little as ten business days. We are very thorough and want to make sure we meet your expectations. This requires time to train our team and test your account.
A: SLA stands for Service Level Agreements. Service Levels in a call center usually represent how quickly calls are answered and processed. These are usually represented in 75%/120s or 90%/10s, where 75% of the calls are answered in 120 seconds or less, or 90% or the calls are answered in 10 seconds or less. Our goal is 80%/30s, which we believe provides the right balance for customer service and efficiency. Most of our calls are answered live by our receptionists, and on average, any calls that go into the queue only wait about 20 seconds.
A: AHT is Average Handle Time. This is the duration of the call, plus the time it takes a call center rep to finish any notes or actions after the caller has hung up (wrap time). For example, a call that lasts 2 minutes plus 20 seconds of wrap would have a handle time of 2m 20s.
A: No. Google does not recommend using Google Voice for business.
