How Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) Works?

The ACD system usually classifies incoming calls based on certain predefined criteria such as caller ID, IVR selections, and the agent’s availability. The system then places the calls in a queue until an agent becomes available to take the call. To optimize efficiency, ACD distributes calls evenly among available agents. Moreover, the system can route calls to agents with specific skills or expertise, leading to improved customer service.  In case of outbound calls, the ACD system connects the calls to the available agents  using predefined ACD techniques once the customer answers the call.
