Los Angeles, CA – June 20, 2017 – Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is excited to announce an exclusive interview with Shai Berger, Co-Founder and CEO of Fonolo, a revolutionary solution that remedies the common aggravations people have when phoning a call center.

Fonolo solves the problems that organizations face when callers are forced to hold the line. According to Berger, “There are many things people dislike when phoning a traditional contact center. There is the ‘push one for this’, ‘push two for that’, ‘push three for yet another option’ headache. Then there is what everyone hates the most – waiting on hold.”

Fonolo eliminates hold time by replacing it with a call-back. This allows callers to keep their place in line without being on the phone, while Fonolo “waits” in the queue for them. When it’s their turn, callers automatically receive a call-back from the next available agent, allowing them to avoid the frustration of waiting on hold.

Furthermore, it’s not just the callers that benefit, but also the businesses. Berger says, “Adding a call-back solution is advantageous for contact centers: Call-backs have been proven to mitigate spikes in call volume, lower caller abandonment, and streamline costs. It’s a true win-win.”

There are many reasons why Fonolo stands above its competitors, notably its rich feature set and software as a service (SaaS) model. Fonolo is a cloud-based solution, which means there is no need for expensive hardware integration. This makes it especially attractive for companies that are currently operating on a legacy call center system and want to offer the option of call-backs. In addition, Fonolo allows customers to purchase only the services they need, which makes this solution more affordable and customizable.

“Fonolo has successfully remedied one of the universally dreaded tasks: waiting on hold,” said JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®. “This has transformed the way many call centers do business, allowing them to reduce abandonment rates, smooth out spikes in call volume, and lower operating costs. We are proud to feature this company on the show,” added Haber.
