Message Queue

Route your business WhatsApp or SMS messages to a queue of agents and share the workload.

What is Message Queue?

Yeastar P-Series Phone System provides Omnichannel Messaging that allows you to receive, send, and manage your business WhatsApp and SMS messages within a unified interface. Message Queue functionality plays a crucial role in organizing and distributing these messages among agent groups.

With the Message Queue feature, your business WhatsApp or SMS messages can be automatically routed to a queue of agents based on preset routing rules. This way, you can effectively share the workload across the team and ensure timely responses for enhanced customer satisfaction.

How does it work?

Message Queue

Auto Team Assignment

Automatically route customer messages to a team of agents. You can create one dedicated queue for all your messaging channels, or designate separate message queue for different channels and purposes, ensuring that every customer inquiry is routed to rights agents and handled effectively.

Collaborative Workload Sharing

Upon receiving a new message notification, all agents in the queue can check the incoming messages and review the sender information such as the “From” phone number, queue name, and contact information. With these basic info, agents can determine the urgency and importance of message and decide whether to pick up and handle the message. The “available and best-fit agent served first” model reduce the message response time and allows agents to collaborate and share the workload within assigned queues.

One-click Chat Transfer

When it’s necessary, agent can easily click to transfer/escalate an ongoing chat (with all chat history included) to other agent or message queue to fine tune the message routing flow, ensuring faster resolution of customer inquiries.
