After-Hours Service Desk Call Routing

Let no important customer call go unnoticed

Even small and medium sized business are required to provide services at their customer’s fingertips. Offering a service or help desk with a 24/7 operated voice line is common. It is however a challenge to staff those services during after-hours. Even for larger enterprises with low call volume it doesn’t make sense to staff such hotline around the clock. So, on-call or standby seems like a solution.

It might also prove hard to pick up the phone in the middle of the night and to be fresh and bright in an instant when an upset customer calls. And while a voice mailbox sounds good it leaves you with the challenge of getting a reliable notification out when a customer left a voicemail. Such important call notification should never go unnoticed.

Call routing

SIGNL4 is your solution and supports both live call routing and a voice mailbox which can notify your staff with any left recording. It is a plug & play solution and set up within minutes. SIGNL4 will provide your customers or staff members with a phone number to call. Incoming calls will be automatically routed to a person on call.

If nobody is available or if live call routing is not wanted, an integrated voice mailbox records a message and then notifies on-call staff on their mobile phone. They can then open the SIGNL4 alert in the mobile app and press the ‘Play’ button to listen to your customer’s recording.
