Call Bridging

Call Bridging uses a call service to connect the visitor and agent automatically. Calls can be connected in two ways: 1) the visitor is called immediately and put on hold until an agent accepts the engagement or 2) the visitor is called as soon as an agent accepts the call engagement. 

Call Bridging enables a “call now” capability that connects the call only when both the visitor and agent are available to talk.

  • Call the visitor immediately – bridged a call with a visitor immediately when they submit a call bridging request, without waiting for an agent to be assigned. The visitor will hear a message prompt to confirm that they wish to connect to an agent by pressing a button. Once this is done, they are put on hold until an agent accepts the engagement. 
  • Call the visitor only after an available agent has been assigned – The visitor is bridged a call once an agent has accepted their call request.
