Customer Support CloudTalk supports you 24/7 live through the different timezones, knowledge base, and FAQ/forum. Offers you email/help desk, chat, and phone support. No 24/7 live support and knowledge base.
VIP Queues Make your regular customers feel special. Create VIP Queue and give the priority to the customers which matter the most to your business. 3CX offers you a Call Queue feature, so the agents take calls when they are ready. This feature is available in PRO and Enterprise editions.

Increase the number of calls with Predictive dialer

Predictive dialer ensures that more customer calls are made in a shorter time. It is an ideal tool to get in touch with your customers. In each campaign, you can also configure for how long the agent remains unavailable after the call ends – the time necessary to finish administration tasks.

Enhanced communication and smoother workflow

Poor and complicated communication tools can be time and energy thieves. With SIP trunking from CloudTalk, you can provide your agents with smart features that allow them to spend more time doing their actual jobs. Make the daily workflow smooth with tools like AWC, IVR, Call flow designer, and many more.
