Hospitality Reservations Queue

Hospitality Reservations Queue

Hospitality Reservations Queue

I'm a former Avaya guy but I'm overseeing this Mitel 3300 system.

We are working with a Mitel Integrator. It has been in place for about 5 years.

I need advice or to know the options on how to best setup the call queue for reservations.

Sometimes when they are short-staffed or running a promotion the queue gets long.

I'm think at times we need to add people to the queue or setup multiple expanding rollover queues?

Any advice?

Sometimes when I am working with the integrator I don't feel like I'm getting tier 1 support or advice if you know what I mean.

RE: Hospitality Reservations Queue

What software is running? Is ACD enabled on this system?

I suppose you're entitled to your opinion, I'm just not going to suppose very hard.

RE: Hospitality Reservations Queue

I believe ACD is enabled.

RE: Hospitality Reservations Queue

Not sure of the software but I can check later.

In my experience, the only solution is to add people. Understaffing is the bane of my existence. It doesn't matter how much you design the system to automate the call, ultimately someone needs to answer and deal with the call.

RE: Hospitality Reservations Queue

I agree best answer is more staff

if thats not an option then
-force overflow to another location- ring all ring groups are very annoying but we have customers that ignore them as well
-force the call to voicemail

If I never did anything I'd never done before , I'd never do anything.....

RE: Hospitality Reservations Queue

In your messaging, drive callers to the web if appropriate; directions, weather, local dining, etc. We found that almost half our calls were strictly informational calls not leading to a booking.

Recording calls will help the supervisors understand which agents need coaching to shorten the average call length. Or to understand the resources required by the agents to provide quicker answers.

Have them run historical reports (Yesterday, last week, last month, last year), then they can project and prepare for busy times. Or implement Work Force Management tools (at a cost).

In the end, it will still boil down to staffing, they won't want to hire and still look to you for a tech solution.
