Ring Groups, commonly known also as Hunt Groups, are a lean but effective call routing strategy. Ideal for growing companies, Ring Groups are categorizations that group team members based on their departmental proficiencies and then ring all of their numbers at the same time whenever a call comes in for any particular team or department. This is great for teams that need to give customers clear options when they call in but that also have low enough call volume that they don’t need sophisticated balancing to make sure no one member gets overwhelmed. Ring Groups also come as standard features to all Dash Plans, so they often come as a bonus to businesses looking to save money over traditional, on-site PBX systems.
Picking the right call queue system for any business is made much more simple by first deciding to switch from a legacy phone system to a hosted telephone service. For some businesses like call centers or contact centers, for example, the need for a robust call queue system is apparent right away. For others, however, once they are operating on a VoIP business phone, they can typically just activate their desired call queue right away as a feature of their VoIP Plan.
