Scripting and Dispatch
What is Scripting and Dispatch ?
Scripting software “reads” the incoming call and presents the agent with the unique account associated with client’s phone number. Agents take the required information, which is formatted and sent (dispatched) to the client. Dispatch software automates the method of delivery (SMS, email, etc.) and even sends the message to multiple contacts as a group dispatch.
Why is it important?
Answering service agents handle calls for a very wide variety of clients, - plumbers, doctors, lawyers – each with vastly different call handling requirements. Scripting software presents an easy-to-follow workflow that allows agents to move through each engagement simply by asking the questions presented. Training agents becomes much easier, as they don’t need to memorize each account – they simply follow the logical script.
