Whether they work in sales, service, health care, or finance, these ambassadors prefer using familiar tools such as Microsoft Teams to simplify their customer communication and care workflows.

Upon opening of the Queues app, users immediately get a 360 view of their call queue performance through real-time statistics. The app makes it easy for members to opt-in or out of call queues based on these statistics, their availability, and business needs. When opted-in, members can receive call notifications for their respective queues, all without leaving Teams. Upon acceptance of a call, members can also see relevant customer profile information from their CRM tool in a browser popout side-by-side, as configured by the organization.
