Any ideas pn best way to get agents attention if they are already on a queue call?



I am looking for ideas on how to alert my agents while they are engaged in a call.

I have an app I use for dispatching road side service.

This app is also accessed directly by customers.

During the graveyard shift I have only 2 or 3 agents on the call center.

Assuming all are engaged on a call with a customer or road side tech, I am looking for the best way to let the agents know another call came in, directly via the dispatch app.


We have a webhook in place on the app and it successfully knows when a new call is directly placed on our board. Because our agents may be on the call for several minutes and may have a few calls in queue, it's easy for 20 or 30 minutes to pass before they get a chance to check the app for new calls. Problem is the customer may not be as patient and starts calling other companies.


Wish would be if a call appears that we can pop-up an alert on the agents desktop letting them know a call appeared. My developer and I are thinking maybe there is an API we can leverage to do this right in the zoom client. We are also open to other ideas.


Thanks for any comments.
