So, let's pretend you are running a medical center, maybe a pizza place or any business that requires attending customers by the phone and walk-ins at the same time. It is obvious that you need at least one person not talking on the phone. It is also obvious that you need a call center queue for those customers on the phone.

First of all, a Call Center is a very specific use case of a FIFO queue. Any respectable call center business must have some kind of implementation for their own use or their users.

People do not like to wait while listening to your music on hold; also people waiting in the queue are costing money (many carriers bill incoming calls). Depending on the nature of your business, people could switch to another business or just wait. Because of this, it is very common these days that call centers to offer a call-back feature. A call center feature is the one that allows users to hang out without losing its turn in the queue. When it is their turn (or about to be their turn), the system callbacks them.

So, I will talk now about my experience with DidCentral. My first contact with them was a cold call; I had no idea how they got my contact information but they had my full name, phone number and email. The sales representative was really motivated, it called me like five times until I had the time to take the call.

So, I started to do a little due diligence. My first finding was DidCentral is not an incorporated business, it is a limited liability company (aka LLC). They may be small yet; nothing bad with that.

I will try to tell you what happened with my approach here.
