This method can maximize the strengths of each member of the team.

The advantage of this method is that it can give customer service staff a certain degree of initiative, which is conducive to mobilizing the enthusiasm of customer service staff. The disadvantage is that it requires strengthened supervision and management to ensure that customer needs are responded to quickly and the workload is distributed fairly.

 

Allocate according to member's busyness

The system adjusts based on each agent's current workload, the number of sessions being handled, and the pre-determined priority. When a new customer inquiry arrives, it is assigned to an agent who is relatively idle or has priority to handle that type of inquiry. This approach not only ensures that customer inquiries can be responded to quickly, but also balances the overall workload of the customer service team.
