Automatic Call Distribution (ACD)
The ACD is a highly sophisticated queuing function with unlimited Queues and number of lines. Features also include; Music on Hold, Estimated Answering Time; Automated Call-Back to hang-ups; Automated Call-Back requests; Skills-Based Routing; Call Priority Options, Agents Queue prompts and more.
Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
IVR’s can be configured as simple DTMF set-ups such as push ‘1’ for Sales, ‘2’ for Accounts etc; or alternatively sophisticated configurations that incorporate Text to Speech (TTS) for personal verification applications or the likes. Any number of prompts can be set-up and changed at a Supervisor level as required.
Queue & Script Change Management
Supervisors can easily change queue routing across multiple channels; and indeed change IVR messages via the functions on the Supervisor screen.
Automated Speech Recognition (ASR)
Speech Recognition technology is often used for rapid response applications and/or those applications that facilitate the mobility of customers ie; applications that require call recipients to verify their identity is often far more effective using ASR, as against a standard IVR.
Moreover, Speech Recognition technology enhances the customer experience by removing layers in the traditional IVR. Referred to as Intelligent Call Steering (ICS), the technology quickly guides customers to agents that are best equipped to assist them with enquiries.
Fully Blended Environment
Inbound Contact Management & Outbound predictive dialler campaigns can operate either independently or alternatively in a fully blended environment to further optimise performance. Importantly, inbound contacts are automatically prioritised over outbound contacts as a means of attending to these customers with immediacy.
Skills Based Routing
Customers are automatically routed to the next available agent with the most appropriate skill and/or skill level. Notably, agents can have multiple skills and skill levels, as can campaigns/queues can have multiple skills. Agents with appropriate skill-sets can facilitate communication across multiple channels ie; Voice, Email, SMS, Web and Social Media.
Immediate Response to Web Enquiries
In order to optimise your online marketing spend, and indeed respond to web enquiries before competitors, the PCXCOM call centre system can prioritise web esquires to the next available agent.
The operational flexibility of PCXCOM call centre technology facilitates supervisor level, dynamic change management ie; queue routing, predictive dialler settings, IVR’s, campaign scripts, wrap-ups and FAQ’s.
Data can be easily exported from the PCXCOM call centre system at any point of time. Likewise, produce outcome reports based on relevant wrap-ups such as ‘completed surveys’ for your QA team to then confirm the accuracy of outcomes upon review of call recordings.
