The Competella Attendant Console is designed and developed based on input from a large number of receptionists who has hands-on experience with the features required by a switchboard to be able to support the company in delivering precise service for callers to the company's main number.

The Competella Attendant Console supports the receptionists with a full overview of the current call, calls waiting, logged-on receptionist status, the organization including Skype for Business and Cisco line-state presence. This support and function is also loosely called the Competella Receptionist Console, as it provides the best functions for the receptionists that allows a better support in the company.

The reception is the face of the company the customers will meet every time they call the main number 

Callers asks for specific persons, subjects, skills, departments and much more. The receptionist is typically bombarded with questions every day to be directed in the right direction. The Competella Attendant Console has an integrated directory that integrates to Active Directory with very fast and advanced search features to enable the receptionist to find the best receiver of the caller at the reception console. All of it made to empower the receptionist to build a good image and improve brand experience awareness for callers and the employee presence. This advanced feature and solution is mostly known as the Competella Receptionist Console.


Is she available now?

To find the right person is a good step of the way, and the Competella solution of course includes Skype for Business presence in the directory overview aswell as the overall switchboard that provides the full overview. The receptionist can even talk to the colleague directly from the Attendant Console before transferring the caller, which greatly influences the call forwarding management and secures a good service. 


When will he be back?

Many companies can reap the benefits of the Competella Exchange integration, which gives the receptionist a full overview of the colleague calendar and when the colleague is available again. This calendar presence integration is of course fully supported by other external calendars to fully integrate with the Attendant Console and operator console.


Can you ask her to call me back or can I leave a message?

To send phones messages is highly automated with the Competella Attendant Console. It auto inserts the predefined text and the caller phone number in an e-mail – the receptionist just needs to get the name of the caller and press send!

Direct transfer to Skype for Business voicemail is also available – so the caller can record his own message to the colleague. 


I’m ill – can you forward my phone?
