Percentage and Time Routing

Routing rules help businesses with multiple customer service teams or groups distribute incoming customer inquiries to their preferred destinations.

In maaiiconnect, routing rules can be based on volume percentage or time of day. They are available for Tags, Virtual Numbers, and Omnichannel.

  • Percentage routing - distributes incoming inquiries at percentage value.
  • Time-based routing - distributes incoming inquiries using time allocation.
