19AACC 6.2 and Self-Service Integration Front-end and Back-end Self ServiceEnd CustomerAvaya Voice Portal 5.1 and Avaya Aura Experience Portal 6.0 integration forIntelligent agent selectionAdvanced wait treatmentIVR treatment (credit card authentication, auto call completion)Software based platform leverages existing IT investmentsBest in class business continuityFlexible architecture supports tens of thousands of concurrent portsBuilt in application reporting / analyticsInvestment protection for legacy applicationsAACCThe Avaya Voice Portal and Avaya Aura Experience Portal can be applied as the front-end and back-end to an Avaya AuraTM Contact Center. It enables improved Identification and Validation and match with the most appropriate resource in the enterprise. The Identification and validation can be done through Caller ID, DTMF driven menus, speech entries by the caller as well as by parsing the SIP signalling. AVP can also collect digits and pass it to Avaya Aura Contact Center for driving screen pop. When a caller is identified it is for instance possible to play personalized announcements, to make the waiting time more comfortable.Voice Portal can select a self-service application which accomplishes preparation work ahead of agent selection and handling allowing for faster resolution of customer issues at lower cost.Voice Portal has been architected to meet the most stringent scalable performance and “high availability” requirements that today’s mission- critical speech-enabled communications applications demand.Voice Portal collects a rich set of call, session, and application record detail that can be presented within fully customizable web-based reports. Voice Portal also includes centralized reporting for multiple Voice Portal clusters to get an “Enterprise View” of all self-service capabilities whether across town or around the world.AACC 6.2 adds support for back-end integration to facilitiate functionality such as credit card authentication and auto call completion.Intelligent Agent Selection based on ID&V (advanced segmentation)ANI, DNIS, DTMF or Speech entry and SIP parsingAACC forAssisted ServiceAVP / AAExPfor Self-ServiceLeverage “Experience Portal First” and Mid-Assignment Integration
20AACC – Workflow Enhancements Introducing some Avaya Business Advocate features into AACCService Level Workflow (SLW) based on Target Service LevelService level target instrumental in workflow decisionsGoal: minimize callers experiencing wait times which exceed the targeted service level goalDynamic Agent/Skillset match based on Target Service LevelReduces wait time by assigning “dynamic skillsets” to “reserve” agentsReserve agents activated if skillset Expected Wait Time (EWT) exceeds the targeted service levelWhen EWT falls below the targeted service level goal, reserve agents releasedAdministrator selection of AACC EWT or Enhanced EWTService Level workflow (SLR) based on Target Service LevelEnhanced workflow strategy where the service level is taken into consideration with the goal of minimizing the number of callers experiencing wait times which exceed the service levelDynamic Agent and Skillset match based on Target Service LevelFurther reduces wait time by assigning “dynamic skillsets” to “reserve” agents, triggered by the skillset Expected Wait Time exceeding the service level i.e. extra agents can be made available. When the EWT falls below the service level the assignments are removed.Note: Predicted Wait Time routing (an estimation of the time a call will wait for service in a call queue if the currently available agent does not answer the call) is not supported with AACC 6.2.2010 Avaya Inc.
