The agent is talking to a customer while viewing his details. The softphone provides easy call control, including entering call disposition, from within a single unified console.
The Softphone is compatible with all major browsers and requires no software to be downloaded or plugins installed. Using the Softphone, the user can:
The Sytel outbound dialer, a core component of SCC, offers predictive, progressive and preview modes. Its sophisticated campaign and list inventory management features – including retry schemas, time zone management, alternate number dialing and end-of-list management - enable high performance automated dialing of Salesforce contacts.
SCC offers the highest predictive gain of any dialer. Predictive gain is the only accurate measure of predictive dialer quality - not how much talk time, but how much more talk time compared to dialing progressively under the same conditions. And it does this while minimizing nuisance calls under US (FTC/ FCC) or UK (Ofcom) rules. Sytel welcomes any benchmarking tests against other dialers.
For inbound service calls, SCC offers extensive and detailed control over call routing, based on CLI, DNIS, agent skills or route through IVR, ensuring that service calls are handled quickly and efficiently by the right agent.
SCC maximizes call center productivity by utilizing call blending, moving agents seamlessly and automatically between inbound and outbound campaigns in response to service levels. This makes best use of agent time, and minimizes the number of agents required to maintain SLAs.
SCC includes a complete IVR system with a drag-and–drop design tool, enabling non-technical staff to design and implement complex flow logic.
Calls can be recorded either manually by the agent or automatically. SCC offers easy-to-use tools to find and play selected recordings as required.
SCC delivers data on current activity, past activity or a seamless mix of both, updating in real-time. A range of data delivery options are available to feed 3rd party reporting tools, web apps or Sytel's own web front-end.
