COVID-19 Coronavirus – Work From Home

Quickly set-up your customer service employees to Work-From-Home and answer all your business telephone calls.


With PCXCom cloud service, we can quickly set up your employees so they can continue to work from home, making and taking your business calls.

Inbound Calls: for the duration of the Coronavirus emergency, we can route your business 13 / 1300 /1800 numbers and enable your Work-From-Home employees to answer all calls from their home or mobile.  All they need is an internet connection*, computer and ideally a quality headset.

During the COVID-19 Coronavirus emergency, we are waiving set-up fees, lock-in contracts and minimum spends.  Note: To meet our obligations with the Telecommunications Act we still require an agreement with you.  Our COVID-19 service is a pre-paid service meaning that provided your account is in credit, you have access to the service.

Included in the COVID-19 PCXCom cloud service

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.

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.

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

Importantly, inbound contacts are automatically prioritised over outbound contacts as a means of attending to these  customers with immediacy.

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.

* Home Internet Connection – internet connections to homes vary greatly, for best results a high speed, cabled internet connection works best with telephone calls. Wireless internet connections work however they can experience call quality degradation and call drops. Wherever possible, at home agents should connect directly to their modem / router using a Cat5 cable and not use Wireless internet.
