RECEIVING LEADS AND INBOUND CALLS: 

Internet leads and live inbound calls can both be routed to you using Dial-IQ. This dramatically accelerates your speed to contact and ensures that the right leads get to the right people fast.

Receiving Internet Leads

When an internet lead is added to Velocify, your administrator can have that lead routed to you using Dial-IQ. This can be done through one of three methods:

  1. Fixed – This routing method will notify only you to receive the lead.
  2. Hunt Group – This routing method will notify you to receive the lead. However, if you do not answer, another user will be notified to take that lead instead.
  3. Shotgun Connect – This method notifies many users of a new lead at once. Only the first to claim the lead receives it.

 

diq26.jpg

Notifications of a new lead using Dial-IQ can be either phone notification or on-screen notification.

Accepting a Lead by Phone Notification: 

  1. Answer your phone. A short message will inform you that a lead is available and will prompt you to press 1 to accept the lead.
  2. Press 1 on your phone. If you won the lead, Dial-IQ will announce the lead’s information (e.g. the lead's name) and automatically initiate a call to the lead's default phone number.

CALL TRANSFER:

 

Any Dial-IQ call may be transferred through the Dial-IQ system. There are three primary types of transfers: cold transfers, warm transfers, and no hold transfers.

 

Cold Transfer

 

A cold or "blind" transfer is when you transfer the call directly, without speaking to the person you are transferring the call to.

  • NOTE - Transferring the call to an external number is the only available option for cold transfers.

 

 

Initiating a Cold Transfer:

Warm Transfer:

 

A warm transfer allows the agent who is currently speaking with the caller to speak with the new agent before the call is transferred. In this scenario, Agent 1 can provide Agent 2 with information about the caller – such as background information – while the caller is on hold. Agent 1 can then conference in the caller before completing the transfer so that all three parties can speak.

 

Diai-IQ offers three warm transfer methods:

  1. Select User by Distribution – This method leverages Velocify’s distribution system. The call will be automatically transferred to the next eligible and available agent according to the routing rules.
  2. Select User Manually – This method presents a list of available Dial-IQ agents the call may be transferred to.
  3. Enter Phone Number – This method allows the agent to input an external phone number to transfer the call to.
