Sticky Agents

Connect a specific customer to a dedicated agent every time.

About Sticky Agents

The Sticky Agents feature enables you to connect a specific customer to a dedicated agent every time a customer calls. This feature is very useful in scenarios where customers have issues that need more than one call to resolve. This helps in improving your customers’ call experience and leads to a faster point resolution. Having a dedicated agent in such scenarios will be a time-saver for both the customers as well as the agents as the agent will be aware of the case history.

How does the Sticky Agents feature work?

When the Sticky Agents feature is enabled in the call forward widget, Flowbuilder. For any customer's call that is received, the system first checks the call history of the past seven days from the current day. If any call record is found that matches the customer-agent pair the system connects the customer to the same agent. If there is no call history found, then the system checks for any sticky agent with the customer number and connects to the same if found and available. Customer call is distributed randomly among the agents if none of the scenarios matches.

Note

For any call initiated,

  1. The system will first check for the existing sticky agent, if found, then the call is forwarded accordingly.
  2. If point 1 fails, the system checks for the previous seven-day call history and forwards the call in case of history found.
  3. If points 1 and 2 fails, the system will forward the call to an available agent.

If a sticky agent is found and previous call history is also available, the sticky agent will get the priority.
