Contact Center Services Release 8.0
Office Suite Contact Center Services release 8.0 is scheduled for production on March 10th and 11th. The following is a summary of what is coming in the new release.
Outbound Calling Campaigns
CCS Outbound Queuing has taken a big step forward. The newest functionality allows Tenant Administrators to upload calling lists and run outbound calling campaigns using those lists. These campaigns are completely automated. CCS will manage and track the calls allowing for both on-demand tracking as well as full results after the campaign has completed.
List driven campaign features include:
- Reusable calling lists
- Defined campaign calling window including blackout dates and times
- Automated rescheduling of unsuccessful call attempts
- Round-robin call distribution among the agents assigned to the campaign
Agent Wrap-Up Forms for Inbound and Outbound Voice Queue Calls
When building a Queue, the Tenant admin can now allow the agent to be presented with a call wrap-up form upon hanging up the call. These forms can be used to ask the agent for business-specific information about the call and its success. Wrap-Up forms can include multiple questions and answers can be binary (yes/no, true/false), Star Rating, Multiple Choice and free form. Agent answers are preserved in the completed events and are downloadable for reporting.
When building a queue, the Tenant Admin can now decide what happens to the caller when the agent hangs up first. For example, when an agent hangs up the caller can be redirected to a question or a series of questions to answer using either voice responses or DTMF tones on their phone. Once the caller answers and hangs up, those answers will be captured with the call history and viewable in completed events and exportable. The Tenant Admin constructs and preserves all of their survey questions within a library inside CCS.
Faster Software Upgrades
Effective with the upgrade to 8.0, CCS software upgrades will complete in less than 20% of the time required by previous CCS upgrades. As always, all upgrades are scheduled during the early hours of the morning and customers are notified in advance. This CCS improvement will greatly reduce the impact of such upgrades on our 24x7 customers.
The Windstream Enterprise Community is a community of real people who collaborate on answers, solutions, and ideas about the Windstream Enterprise products and services they use. We invite you to become a member, but we do have a few rules. For everyone's sake, we are committed to enforcing these guidelines, as well as our community vendor's Terms of Service.
People will respect you more, engage with you more often, and treat you like a real person if you use your actual identity here. While not mandatory, it does help us identify accounts when we try to provide answers to specific questions.
We are into transparency, honesty, and truth. Do not misrepresent yourself or lie about your identity, affiliations, or age. Our community is based on the contributions of real people who put their reputations on the line. Be one of them.
Have (Good, Clean) Fun
We encourage the spirit of fun, so long as it does not hurt other people. Please do not use jokes, words or images that come at the expense of others. Be sensitive to other users around you, and do not post profane, sexual, or violent material.
Be Constructive with Your Criticism
The idea here is to foster healthy conversation and debate without ever attacking anyone personally. We take all questions, suggestions, and feedback seriously and will respond accordingly and so should you.
Spread the Wealth
Make our community a richer place by sharing your experience and insight. You may have the perfect answer to someone else's burning question. This is the substance of the Windstream Enterprise Community.
It is okay to talk up the products or services you love (or sell), but only if it is relevant to the conversation. If you are here to plant a ton of links to your Web site without doing much else, your posts are likely to be removed by a moderator.
Do Not Wrongfully Post Content
Make sure you have the right to publish any content you post to the Windstream Enterprise Community, and do not violate the privacy of others.
Be Fruitful, but Do Not Multiply
Do not create multiple accounts to violate these guidelines, game the system, or harass and deceive other users.
Trolls are users whose primary goal is to disrupt the community, attack other users, antagonize community managers, and are never interested in a productive outcome. If you engage in troll behavior, we will ask you to leave the Windstream Enterprise Community.
