The series of SV8100 training modules is designed to help you sell solutions to your customers by increasing your understanding of system capabilities.July 2006
2 InACD Snapshot Native Automatic Call Distribution Activated via License from SV8100 CPUProgram through the SV8100MIS software package required for Reports and Real Time ScreensMonitor and Agent Client licensesAny SV8100 terminals can be used:Digital DT300 Series (Display & Non Display)DT700 Series IP Terminals (Display & Non Display)SP310 Soft phonesSingle Line Analog PhonesSlide 3: InACD SnapshotBefore I start describing the individual features, I would like to give you a quick snapshot of several key elements of the InACD application for the SV8100.The InACD feature set is inherent in SV8100 software, enabled through the purchase and installation of an Activation key. Programming of the ACD feature set is performed in the SV8100 like any other feature on the system.The MIS software is the statistical reporting package. The Monitor license enables supervisors to view activity in real-time. While the Agent Client license provides them access to a text messaging tool and the ability to view group status.To add flexibility to your customer solution, an agent station can be any terminal supported on the SV8100.
3 Capacities 512 agents 64 ACD groups 64 Supervisors 1 System Supervisor MIS Capacities5 Real Time Monitor Licenses (1 Included with MIS)Agent Client Licenses for RTD (3 Included)Slide 4: InACD CapacitiesAs soon as you activate the ACD application, your customer has support for up to 512 agents, 64 ACD groups, 64 supervisors (that’s one per group) and 1 overall system supervisor.
4 Delay Announcements Delay Announcement Options VRS (up to 16 Ports / shared with InMail)2 Delay Announcements per group48 per system + Standard Messages8 simultaneous callersAll callers hear announcement from beginningPGD (Paging Door Phone Adapter) OptionProvides connection to external message sourceLess robust, but less costlyCallers hear announcements in progressUp to 48 adapters per systemOne ESI port per connection/two connections per adapterInMailUses any of the 16 available Master MailboxesSlide 5: Delay AnnouncementsInACD supports two methods of providing delay announcements to callers waiting in queue.The addition of the optional VRS (Voice Response System) compact flash mounted on the CPU provides 2 delay announcements per group with a maximum of 48 messages plus 2 fixed messages per system., The VRS allows up to 8 callers to hear each announcement simultaneously while waiting in queue. Multiple groups can share an announcement and each can be repeated up to 256 times, so there should never be a shortage of delay announcements. The installation of the VRS, requires the use of a board level voice mail system.As an alternative, customers on a stringent budget who do not require the higher end VRS solution can use the Paging Door Phone Adapter and locally provided message sources. One of the biggest differences between the VRS and this solution, is that callers entering an announcement that’s in progress will not hear it from the beginning.
5 InACD MIS MIS Software Windows-based software programs Monitors call activityDisplays both real-time data and historical reportsAgent PerformanceCall TrafficQueue/Group StatisticsList of available operations based on what is defined or being modifiedSlide 6: InACD FeaturesThe InACD MIS software package is a series of Windows-based programs designed to enhance the ACD features of the SV8100 Telephone System. The software displays both real-time data and historical reports.The MIS is designed to save your customer’s organization money by providing a cost-effective method of capturing, displaying, and reporting ACD group call traffic and staff activity. These reporting tools help evaluate staffing requirements and agent performance.Items that are defined for this element show up hereSelect elements of call center to manage
6 InACD Features Incoming Call Routing & Call Queuing Incoming trunk calls routed automatically to specific ACD GroupsIncoming calls queue for busy ACD groupsQueue Status DisplaysNumber of calls queuedLongest trunk in queue and length of time waitingSet Following conditions for each ACD GroupNumber of trunks that can wait in queue before Queue Status Display occursHow often the time in queue display reoccursIf the supervisor should hear a Queue Alarm whenever the time in queue reoccursSlide 7: InACD FeaturesIncoming trunk calls can automatically route to specific ACD Groups. These types of calls ring directly into the ACD Group without being transferred by a co-worker or the Automated Attendant.When all agents in an ACD Group are unavailable, an incoming call will queue and cause the Queue Status Display to occur on the ACD Group Supervisor’s display. The display helps the supervisor keep track of the traffic load within their group.The Queue Status Displays shows the number of calls queued for an available agent in the group, the trunk that has been waiting the longest, and how long it has been waiting.For each ACD Group, you can set the number of trunks that can wait in queue before the Queue Status Display occurs, how often the time in queue portion of the display reoccurs, and if the supervisor should hear a Queue Alarm whenever the time in queue portion reoccurs.The queue alarm is a single beep tone that reminds the supervisor to check the condition of the queue.
7 InACD Features Overflow with Announcements 1st Announcement – Greeting 2nd Announcement – DelayOverflowAnother ACD Group with “Look Back” RoutingVoice MailNon-ACD Extension (Ring Group)Off-PremiseQueue Depth AnnouncementRequires Voice Response System (VRS Compact Flash)Reporting on OverflowSlide 8: InACD FeaturesACD offers extensive overflow options for each ACD Group. For example, a caller ringing in when all agents are unavailable can hear an initial or 1st announcement. This announcement can be a general greeting like, “Thank you for calling. All of our agents are currently busy helping other customers. Please stay on the line and we will help you shortly.” If the caller continues to wait, you can have them hear a 2nd announcement such as, “Your business is important to us. Your call will be automatically answered by the first available agent. Please stay on the line.” The 2nd announcement can be repeated up to 256 times.If agents in the original ACD Group remain unavailable, the call can automatically overflow to another ACD Group , Voice Mail, a non-ACD extension or ring group, or off-premise.If all agents in the overflow destination ACD Group are busy, Look Back Routing automatically ensures that the waiting call will ring into the first agent in either group that becomes free.You can assign an ACD Group with any combination of 1st Announcement, 2nd Announcement and overflow method. You can have, for example, a Technical Service group that plays only the 2nd Announcement to callers and then immediately overflows to Voice Mail. At the same time, you can have a Customer Service group that plays both announcements and does not overflow.The Queue Depth can be played after the 1st Announcement only, 2nd Announcement only, or after both Announcements. You can assign an ACD Group to play the Queue Depth only when using the VRS Compact flash for messages that we’ll cover in more detail in Topic 2, Required Components.Caution about reporting information on overflowed calls. When a call overflows to another ACD Group and is answered, the statistics tracks the call as if it had originated at the second ACD Group. If, however, the call overflows to voice mail, a non-ACD extension or off-premise, the statistics show the call as abandoned.
8 InACD Features Wrap-Up Timer Rest/Off Duty Mode Automatic wrap/work mode timerRest/Off Duty ModeAutomatic Rest/Off Duty Mode for SLTs (replaces break mode)Temporarily log out an agentAutomatically when no answer condition encounteredManually set by an agent when leaving their desk during normal working hoursHeadset Operation With Automatic AnswerUse a headset for privacy and convenienceAnswer calls automaticallySlide 9: InACD FeaturesThe next slides highlight a few of the key features associated with this call center application.The Wrap-Up Timer, also called Work Mode, automatically starts when an agent finishes with an ACD call. It’s used to block further ACD calls to the agent. to give them time to complete important logs, records or orders before a new call comes in. When the timer expires, the system returns the agent to the ACD Group to handle new callers.Rest Mode, also referred to as Off-Duty or Break Mode, is used to temporarily log-out an ACD agent’s telephone. Rest mode can be set automatically by the system or manually by the agent.When an ACD Group is set up for Automatic Rest Mode, the system will automatically put an agent’s telephone in Rest Mode if it is not answered. While in Rest Mode, calls to the ACD Group will not ring the agent’s telephone. If an agent’s telephone is placed into Rest Mode automatically, the agent will need to manually cancel Rest Mode in order to log back into the ACD group. For ease of use, we recommend that Automatic Rest Mode be enabled for single line telephones.For multiline terminals, the system enables Automatic Rest Mode for all telephones with Rest Mode keys. When an agent presses the Rest Mode key while on a call, the agent’s telephone will enter rest mode as soon as the call is finished. While in Rest Mode the agent can place intercom calls or receive direct incoming calls.An ACD Agent can enable Manual Rest Mode anytime they want to temporarily leave the ACD Group. They might want to do this if they go to lunch, go to a meeting or get called away from their work area.The Headset Operation allows an ACD Agent or ACD Group Supervisor to utilize a customer-provided headset in place of the handset. The headset conveniently frees up the user’s hands for other work and provides privacy while on the call. In addition, an ACD Agent with a headset can have Automatic Answer. This allows an agent busy on a call to automatically connect to the next waiting call when they hang up.
9 InACD Features Agent Log In and Log Out Services Emergency Call Login status displayed on agent LCDNormal Agent log in procedure allows agent to log into one Group at a timeAgent Identity Code (AIC) allows agent to log into multiple ACD GroupsEmergency CallAllows an agent to request assistance on a call from their group supervisorTelephone Display StatisticsManually display queue information by pressing a one touch buttonAutomatically display queue information when programmed thresholds are exceededSlide 9: InACD FeaturesThe programmable keys and alphanumeric display on an agent’s telephone show at a glance when they are logged in or logged out.Using the Normal login procedure allows an agent to log into only one group at a time. While using the Agent Identity Code (AIC) allows an agent to log into multiple ACD groups at the same time (up to 64). The system will also allow all extensions (up to the system maximum) to log in using the same AIC code.If an ACD Agent needs assistance with a caller, they can place an Emergency Call to their ACD Group Supervisor. Once the supervisor answers the Emergency Call, they automatically monitor both the ACD Agent and the caller. If the agent needs assistance, the supervisor can join in the conversation. Emergency Call can be a big help to inexperienced ACD Agents that need technical advise or assistance with a difficult caller. The supervisor can easily listen to the conversation and then “jump in” if the situation gets out of hand.Utilizing the SV8100 multiline display telephone, Agents and Supervisors can view queue information on their Liquid Crystal Display by pressing a one touch button. When the number of callers in queue or holding time exceeds programmed thresholds, information can also be set to automatically display.
10 InACD Features Enhanced DSS Operation Hotline Key Supervisor can use the DSS Console to monitor the status of the Agents within a groupProvides agent status based on flash rate of console keyHotline KeyProvides the “normal” Busy Lamp Field (BLF) for co-workers and a unique BLF for ACD AgentsGives a department manager monitoring capabilities without having to become a supervisor with a DSS ConsoleProvides one-button calling and transfer between Hotline partnersSlide 10: InACD FeaturesThe Enhanced DSS Operation allows a programmed extension user to use their DSS Console to monitor the status of the ACD Agents within a group. The DSS Console is an essential tool for supervisors. The console key flash rates tell the supervisor at a glance which of the group’s agents are: Logged onto the group; Logged out of the group; Busy on a call; Placing an Emergency Call to the supervisor; Not available. The ACD Supervisor can also use their console for placing and transferring calls - just like any other extension user.The Hotline Key capability allows an extension’s Hotline keys to provide the “normal” Busy Lamp Field for co-workers and a unique Busy Lamp Field for ACD Agents. Similar to the operation of the supervisor’s DSS Console, the unique Busy Lamp Field shows when the covered agent is in service, out of service or busy on a call. This enhanced capability gives a department manager, for example, ACD Group monitoring capabilities without having to become a supervisor with a DSS Console. Hotline also provides a multiline terminal user one-button calling and transfer to another extension (the Hotline partner). Hotline helps co-workers that work closely together.
11 InACD MIS Features Agent Client License Real-time Display (RTD) Provides queue information and agent information to the desktop without the addition of a wallboardText MessageSend a text message to an agent or a group of agentsStatus window indicates what ACD state the agent is in and for how longSlide 12: InACD FeaturesAgent Client license is an optional capability designed to keep agents informed of queue activity and enable them to communicate with other agents or their supervisor while on a call.The Agent Client application provides desktop real-time displays and text messaging. The Real-time Display (RTD) provides queue information and agent information without the addition of a wallboard. The text messaging feature allows authorized agents to send a text message to another agent, a group of agents or the supervisor.The Agent Client user Interface, shown on this slide, is anchored at the top of the display yet doesn’t cover any other application. It utilizes a Ticker style display to scroll through vital call center statistics and text messages. The example shown provides critical information about the current call such as DNIS (if available), queue name, and how long the call was on hold. Supervisors can select what information is delivered to which agents running this application.Pull down menu provides easy access to common ACD functionsTicker style display keeps the agent abreast of call center activity and in touch with Supervisors and other agents with text messages
