Contact Center Features
IVRs are useful for handling large volumes of calls in a highly efficient manner. They can be configured to provide information, answer questions, reduce load on customer service and route calls to the right destinations. Your Cloud PBX supports an unlimited number of IVRs.
An IVR can be addressed by both external DDI numbers and internal extension numbers.
Each IVR may route calls to:
IVR & Auto Attendant
External Number (mobile, landline and international)
There is no limit to the number of DDI numbers which can be answered by an IVR.
To make information and routing choices or to answer questions, the caller can input any digit strings and digit strings within the same IVR can be different lengths.
The Administration Portal enables you to easily upload your own recordings, voice prompts, questions and messages to be used in your IVRs.
There is no limit to the number of simultaneous calls which can be processed by an IVR.
There is no limit to the number of levels of IVR supported. This is enabled through the powerful concept of an IVR having the option to route to another IVR.

Agents can Pause and Un-Pause calls being put through to them during their shift e.g. to allow for additional data entry after the call has ended.

If a user is on a call and a second call arrives then the user is notified of the second call by background tone, giving them the option to end or hold the first call and answer the incoming call.
By publicising different DID numbers, callers can call a number most appropriate to their query (e.g. Sales, Support, Bill Queries) and be routed to agents with the best skills to deal with their queries.
Combine Incoming Numbers with Groups and IVR functionality to route calls based on Agent Skills and get maximum Agent contribution and the highest levels of customer service.
By collecting input data from callers, the system can be configured to route callers with specific questions to the a Group of Agents with the right skills to most quickly answer the callers' questions.
Every Agent can be added to an unlimited number of Groups so that agents with multiple skills can manage multiple tasks.
