Videlica gets Virtual Queuing for iPhone ready for Apple Watch device ahead of launch
- Videlica extends existing Virtual Queuing for Mobile and Web out to Apple Watch
- New App will help companies reduce the frustration of Hold Time and customer attrition
- WatchKit App will connect the contact centre and their agents to customers wrists
- Virtual Queuing proven to reduce Caller Abandon Rates by at least 50% and improve Net Promoter Score
Videlica, which specialises in deploying Intelligent Virtual Queuing to contact centres that reduces customer hold time, will allow companies to extend the reach of their branded mobile apps on iOS to the Apple Watch. Putting the contact centre on customers’ wrists and helping customers at their true first point of interaction.
Videlica has developed the app for clients interested in deploying Virtual Queuing to Apple’s latest device. The Apple Watch app will allow callers to request a call-back from a contact centre directly from their wrists without the frustration of hold-time or having to repeat their information all over again.
Customers can miss an expected Call-Back from their bank or utility company simply due to having their phone on silent. With the upgraded app for Apple Watch, customers won’t miss their Call-Back as they will receive notification of an incoming call directly on their wrist through a vibrating alert in a non-obtrusive way.
The app can be customised so customers can receive a notification a few minutes in advance reminding them that they are about to receive the Call-Back they requested. This gives them time to step out of a meeting or pull over to the hard shoulder in order to take an important call they are expecting from their bank or service provider.
Apple Watch Features:
- Confirm an ASAP or Scheduled Appointment Time from Watch App
- Push Notification reminder in advance of your call appointment
- Accept the inbound call when received
The Videlica Apple Watch solution leverages the development capability of WatchKit. Once released for Videlica customers on their Mobile Connect Platform, end users of the iPhone app will not need to do anything because the system will prompt the user to install the WatchKit app when a paired Apple Watch is present.
