Alternative, Percentage, Time and Sticky Routing

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

In CINNOX, routing rules can be based on linear sequence, volume percentage or time of day. They are available for Tags, Virtual Numbers, and Social pages.

  • Alternative routing - distributes incoming enquiries in a linear pattern to your set destination.
  • Percentage routing - distributes incoming enquiries at percentage value.
  • Time-based routing - distributes incoming enquiries using time allocation.
  • Sticky routing - establish a relationship between a visitor and your staff. New enquiries from the same visitor will directly route to someone that helped them in the past.

You can add up to five (5) destinations per routing condition.
