The agents would normally use the Skype for Business or Lync application for all call handling. However, Competella Workgroup Contact Center takes the agent further with the possibility to use simultaneous ring – calls are then offered in the Skype for Business client and on e.g. the agent’s mobile phone. Should the agent need to answer calls on another phone number during certain periods or simultaneous ringing, the Competella Workgroup Contact Center supports this. Agent log-on to the Contact Center, selection of queues and answering device are easily done through a browser making the whole process more advanced and flexible.
If you want the customer to do some of the work or just provide information before distributing the call, the Competella IVR is ideal for use in front of the queues where the customers can select what skill or department they want to talk to.
