What is Call Opening?

Call opening is when a call comes in and the agent answers it, they will greet the customer and introduce themselves. Calling opening lines are often phrases that condition the buyer’s mind at ease. 

Call center call openings help humanize the service agent and the firm. This is so customers are more likely to believe that their requirements are being met uniquely.

Call opening is critical since it usually sets the tone for the entire call. Because the call opening is the company’s brand, it should be consistent throughout all representatives and provide the company with a voice and personality.
