Why You Need Calls Managed During Holidays

Why You Need Calls Managed During Holidays

Maintain high-quality customer service during the holiday months.

Each year, there are over 200 federal or state holidays, observances, and religious holidays in the United States. Depending on your business and policies, one of these days could force you to rethink your operations. What if the holiday season comes with staff shortages? Can you afford to hire more people for one day or a long weekend? Is closing your business for a day or longer an option?

Successfully having your calls managed during holidays can be the solution. If you have a small customer service team, don’t let phone calls overwhelm them. Get more done by using a call center service for managing calls during the holiday season. Below are 4 key benefits of using a call center service for the holidays.

Cost Effective Call Management

Hiring a new employee, both temporary and full time can be an expensive proposition. Do you need one new employee or more to keep up with customer expectations? What if you hire too many people and this decision will eventually impact your bottom line? Do you need your staff to work outside office hours?

You can easily find a solution to your problem and speed up response time by working with a call center service. Save money using a call center service during the holiday rush and you’ll get charged only for the time you use. Common service level options available include:

  • Call Filtering – Only have specific calls managed by the service. This can be helpful for filtering out unwanted calls.
  • After-Hours Support – When you leave the office for the day, live phone or chat agents will keep your customers happy with answers to their questions and professional support.
  • Call Overflow Management – Too many calls at one time? This happens often during the busiest seasons of the year! If a call is not answered in time, your seasonal staff will receive the call.
  • 24-Hour Support – Need support around the clock? We can deliver customer support 24/7. This way, you can focus on the tasks that matter most while boosting customer satisfaction rates.

Flexibility for Your Business

Not sure if you will need additional people for the next holiday? Managing calls during holidays can be difficult to plan for. There are several levels of service you can choose from. Have the service only answer the calls you want or have them support your current call team if call volume surges.
