The revolutionary advent of information technology and new fields of science have changed our world quite dramatically compared to the past. Data and information, either organized or scattered, can be found and used in powerful, productive, and highly beneficial ways.

Businesses and companies have quitted all those old-fashioned, traditional approaches to making growth a long time ago and have relied more on scientific data mining strategies.

When it comes to running and doing something serious, everything matters and should be taken into account—even counting the number of abandoned calls in your company or organization.

Speaking of phone calls, we have three types of calls: incoming, outgoing, and abandoned—also known as inbound, outbound, and missed calls.

Having a Call Management and Analysis tool is really necessary for keeping track of incoming and outgoing call information, processing and analyzing it for later referral.

But what about missed calls? Does it matter that a call accounting like PBXDom bothers itself to record data and process it?

As its name implies, an abandoned call is a call that is left behind without having the chance of receiving an answer or before any conversation occurs.

But before I go any further, I’m interested in asking you to imagine yourself as a caller who calls a company, service, or an enterprise for whatever reason. What would be your thoughts about the team if your call could not find the way in and it is abandoned? Not surprisingly, you become unsatisfied!

Good to know that the abandoned call rate is one of the Key Performance Indicators (KPI). Meaning, that studies show abandonment rate—when exceeding 8 percent—has a huge negative impact on your clients’ satisfaction feel, and the chances are so high that you get reputed with a poor class name.

In one way, the quality of your services and projecting out who you are could happen through the panel of effective responsiveness of your team.

And if you are already concerned with the number of dissatisfied customers and its consequences on your company or its negative effect on your organization image as a whole, then you will definitely expect a Call Management and Analysis service to grant you with some tools to measure and evaluate the abandoned calls and extract some valuable information from them.

For the sake of this, the PBXDom team has put a great effort and time into coming up with the best tools ever for gauging and analyzing abandoned calls and help managers instantly act and recognize the main root of problems, and laying out some new plans and strategies to address them.
