Non-ACD in-call

Definition

What is non-ACD in-call?

Non-ACD in-call is an inbound call that does not rely on the automatic call distributor and is received directly by the available call center agent.

When the agent takes the non-ACD in-call, they may address the caller’s inquiry or re-route them to the appropriate department based on their concern. This direct receiving of a call is possible if the caller is aware of the extension number of the agent they want to speak to.
