Getting started as Reception Agent

Need to know

As an reception agent you are responsible for handling dialogues, these can be calls, chats, emails or more. Good to know is that Anywhere365 uses a hunting mechanism. In this mechanism we try to get the right agent at the right time. An important part is the presence of your Attendant client. If your are available on Skype, you are available for a dialogue.



As an agent you have access to the reception attendant to help you in your daily operations.
