What is a call queue?

A queue is a line or group of people waiting to be attended to. Call queues refer to the incoming calls on hold within contact centers.

Queues are measured by volume and based on the size of your business and agent resources their length and duration will vary.

Conversational IVRs, digital messaging and self-service help call center managers handle call queues by redirecting call traffic to different channels, scheduling callbacks for slower times, or encouraging customers to resolve queries on their own through knowledge bases or intelligent chatbots.
