Typical Use Case

After the call is answered by the customer, Anywhere365 will play a message to the customer, after which the customer can choose option 1 (satisfied), option 2 (not satisfied) or disconnect the call.

If the customer is satisfied (pressed 1) the customer will be thanked for his/her feedback and the call will be disconnected. If the customer is not satisfied (pressed 2), a message will be played to the customer and an action can be defined (e.g. schedule call back request) after which the call gets disconnected. In both cases the feedback (was the customer satisfied or not) will be stored in Anywhere365. Finally, if the customer disconnects the call, this feedback will also be stored and no additional action will take place.

In case the customer has not made a choice within X seconds, the call might be answered by the voicemail of the customer and an additional message will be played to the customer.

If the customer (or the customer’s voicemail) does not answer the autonomous call, but instead the call gets disconnected, Anywhere365 will try to call the customer again, for a maximum of Y retries.
