Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) System

Phone-based automatic call distribution service (AND Phone Group ACD)

Automatic call distribution (ACD) systems are used to handle incoming calls and forward them to an agent who handles the request. Typically this type of service is used to deliver product support, handle information inquiries from customers or to setup a help desk.

Especially for smaller environments where only a couple of agents are required it is usually not cost-effective to build a Call Center environment or outsource the business process.

For such environments the ACD service of AND Phone Group ACD is a tailor-made solution which is easy to implement into existing communications networks.


Incoming calls to the main number (hunt group number) are automatically distributed to one of the agents. The call distribution algorithms available are:

  • First available / Not busy
  • Longest Idle

Additionally it is possible for agents to use the availability service to logoff temporarily from the hunt group with one button on the IP phone. In this case the call distribution algorithm automatically chooses the next available agent for incoming calls.
