Thanks to a recent partnership with FolkTime the David Romprey Orgeon Warmline has added 10 extra FolkTime staff to their call operators. This action alone has tripled the number of calls the Warmline has been able to direct connect with.

“The Warmline went from 3 or 4 operators a shift to 8 or 9 operators! Callers previously were experiencing waiting for call backs for one hour, occasionally two. All of the callers are now receiving direct access to operators! When I look at our call center software and can see that there are seven people on calls and no one waiting in the cue that is…its beautiful!”
