VIP Caller

in network calling

How do you ensure that your high-value customers receive the attention they deserve despite the constant influx of calls? That’s where VIP caller routing comes in; with this advanced call routing feature, your business can:

  • Prioritize important calls
  • Offer tiered and targeted customer service
  • Enhance customer experience for VIP customers

Understanding VIP Caller Routing

VIP caller routing operates on the principle of directing priority calls to designated agents or departments, ensuring your high-value customers receive the attention they deserve. This system leverages advanced call routing techniques such as geo-routing, caller ID prioritization, and dedicated phone numbers to achieve its objectives.

You can get this feature through various methods with your phone service provider. While there are different ways to set up this feature, at United World Telecom, customers can create, manage, and control this routing strategy seamlessly through our online control panel.

How VIP Routing Works

As you know by now, VIP routing streamlines the process of connecting priority calls with the agents who are familiar with the caller’s history and previous interactions. With this, you can provide personalized assistance and strengthen the sense of continuity as well as trust.

Moreover, by matching callers to agents based on language preferences, time zone, and location, you can provide tailored support. This approach not only enhances caller satisfaction but also promotes personalized and responsive customer support.

How to Route and Prioritize VIP Calls

So how do you route calls using this feature? With UWT, you can set up and use this feature in three ways.
With UWT, you can set up and use this feature in three ways.
VIP routing for call forwarding.

1. Dedicated Phone Numbers — Streamline the VIP caller routing process by providing exclusive phone lines for high-value clients. Get special extension numbers or opt for whitelisting VIP callers.

Based on these factors, you determine the routing destinations for these calls. This approach facilitates direct access to specialized support teams or personalized services tailored to individual customer needs.

2. Location-based Routing or Geo-Routing — Route calls based on a caller’s geographic location. This ensures your clients are connected with agents familiar with their region’s nuances and preferences.

For instance, a multinational corporation may route calls from European clients to agents fluent in multiple languages or knowledgeable about specific regional regulations.

3. Caller ID Routing — Set rules that prioritize calls from clients based on their unique caller IDs. Ensure your loyal customers receive expedited service and bypass lengthy wait times, enhancing overall satisfaction and loyalty.

Existing UWT customers can speak to dedicated account managers to get help with setting up VIP routing and customizing the predetermined rules in the control panel.
