Connecting you to the future today!
The Ultimate Call Centre System The Core Product is AeroComms’ standard range of CTIbased communication software for Call Centre applications. The product is of the highest quality and completely stable. It is currently being used in numerous Call Centres in South Africa and has repeatedly demonstrated its reliability. CCE is fully expandable both in the number of seats and in enhanced functionality – extra features may be added in stages as and when required. The product is based on seven basic building blocks: • A PABX providing a CTI enabled telephony platform. • The CCE Server with CTI Middleware that provides Call Control, Skills Based Call Distribution, and Interactive Voice Response functionality. • A system database server containing the Call Centre related data that is stored and processed as part of the Call Centre business process. • Agent workstations on which CC Agent Phone software is installed • Digital Phone sets. • Supervisor Workstation(s) on which CC Config and CC Agent View software is installed. • A TCP/IP Network linking the above mentioned modules.
Component Details The CCE Server PC This server, pre-installed with Microsoft Windows Operating System and CCE Server Software, is the heart of the product. It provides a CTI link to the PABX and also provides a common messaging platform for the various applications used within the Call Centre. The CCE Server is linked to the PABX via a hard wire CTI link. Messaging connections to the rest of the Call Centre system are through a TCP/IP LAN.
CCE Soft-Phone Agent Workstation Software
Soft- Phone functionality on the agent’s workstation screen allows for a PC based telephone control solution that is efficient yet extremely user-friendly. Soft-Phone allows agents to perform standard call functions including consultation, conference and transfer on the workstation screen - all at the click of a mouse. It allows agents to Log In/Out/ Go Ready/Not Ready/ Go Wrap-up. The Soft-Phone also integrates seamlessly to AeroComms’ Specialized User Screen (ACSUS), increasing agent efficiency and ease of operation even further. The software is delivered preinstalled on the CT Main Server and is installed locally on the agent’s PC during the setting up of the call centre.
Advanced Call Distribution (ACD) The Advanced Call Distribution distributes queued callers correctly to agents. This is set up based on call priorities and agent skill requirements. 64 essential skills and 64 optional skills are allocated to each agent. Queue answering requirements are then set up taking these into consideration. The skills allocation function is provided for by an easy-to-use graphics-based Agent Skills interface. Interactive Voice Response (IVR) • The IVR feature has good “Caller Friendly” inbound call-handling and queuing capabilities and provides auto-attendant functionality for the Call Centre system:
• A welcoming announcement identifying the Call Centre service, the selection of the required service and the subsequent allocation of the caller to a call agent. • Maintenance of a queue if all the call agents are busy. This includes playing prerecorded music and announcements to assure the caller that the call is still active. • The caller can “break out” of the queue to voice mail or other telephone numbers. • If queue is full or the caller calls after-hours, an announcement asks the caller to phone back again later or during working hours. • The IVR script is designed in a logical and informative way so as to prompt callers to make the correct desired choices at all stages. All announcements and music are recorded prior to installation - 30 minutes of recordings are included in the package price. • As with the ACD Management software, the editing function is provided for by an easy-to-use graphics-based IVR Management interface. There is no need to shut the Call Centre down during or after alterations. • Customer pre-identification and screen-pop functionality is also available. This ensures automatic identification of the caller and allocation to a suitably skilled agent. Priority customers can also be pulled to the front of the queue.
CC Agent View and CC Reports These agent supervision packages give Supervisors both real-time and historical data on the availability of agents, their workload efficiency as well as the efficiency of the Call Centre in general. It allows the Supervisor to see each Agent’s current and historical availability status and the number of calls in an Agent.
CC Reports provide statistical reports per agent, detailing: • Number of call taken or made over a period. • Average talk time. • Available/Idle/Not ready time. • Times when Agents have logged-in and logged–out. Overall Call Centre reports are also available, detailing: • Calls offered/handled/abandoned. • Average talk and average wait time • Speed to answer
Optional Features and Functions Higher-level features are available as optional extras during the installation phase or later during expansion, as the need may be. AC Multimedia Agent This provides multimedia functions, such as e-mail and fax handling, to the Contact Centre Elite Call Centre. This component polls a separately supplied fax and e-mail server for Call Centre inbound traffic and queues the Call Centre inbound faxes and emails for the Agents’ attention. AC Voicemail Agent This stores voice messages that are left by callers. The messages are distributed to the correct agents as set up through the Advanced Call Distribution (ACD) feature. AC Wallboard An on-screen wallboard gives operators and supervisors a constant overview of the Call Centre status. Conventional wallboards for conventional displays are also catered for. AC Specialized User Screen AeroComms has the skills to develop customized front-end screens to the individual needs of customers. These screens prompt call centre agents to ask the right questions at the right time for speedy but accurate capturing of business data. Integration to other Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) software packages is also possible.
AC Power/Predictive Dialer The AC Power/Predictive Dialer allows for the simultaneous dialing of multiple numbers. On any number being answered, the surplus calls are either transferred to other available agents or terminated. This is an extremely powerful tool that will result in a 200 to 300% increase in efficiency over that of a conventional outbound Call-Centre.
