What is cold transfer and why it’s so out of fashion?

Well, it might be just that we as humans are warm-blooded and like the sun. But there’s more to it under covers:

  • cold transfer (or blind transfer as it used to be called) is simply transferring the call from original agent to the new agent without the background information
  • cold transfers happen without the live agent or live receptionist
  • blind transfers well, kind of self explanatory, blind – transferred incoming calls to a destination agent, leaving him in complete ignorance about the customer’s query
  • imagine a situation when caller reaches agent missing on the other end – then he will be transferred to voicemail

But remember, not all call transfers are created equal. Warm transfer is not always necessarily better than a cold transfer. For instance, when the agent answers and realizes that the caller reached the wrong department, she should just transfer a call to appropriate line.
