Stay Informed with miTeamWeb OnCall Widgets

Amtelco’s miTeamWeb Home page displays a variety of information, displayed in widgets. Widgets are useful applications that occupy a portion of a web page and provide information from other web locations. The miTeamWeb widgets provide information about directory listings, messages, status schedule, voice logs, and on-call schedules. If the system administrator has granted their users access to the layout settings, users can customize their Home page to display the widgets that are most useful to them.

The miTeamWeb OnCall widgets give users access to their on-call assignments, assign their own on-call assignments (or send on-call assignment requests to the schedule administrator), view on-call assignments for a specific day, week, or month, and show information about on-call assignments for selected roles.

Intelligent Series Call Log Customizable Agent Assessment

Amtelco’s Call Log Agent Assessment can be used to assess agents’ productivity to improve their performance, improve customer retention rates, eliminate unproductive processes and systems, and address sources of agent frustration.

Amtelco’s Call Log Agent Assessment is in the call details section of the call log. Supervisors can use the assessment to open a pre-built web script provided by Amtelco to assess an agent based on a series of customizable questions. The customizable “Done” button can perform any actions available in IS scripting, such as emailing or faxing to a specified destination, once the assessment is complete. The call log agent assessment can be accessed in the soft agent application along with the Intelligent Series supervisor application.

The agent assessment feature includes a script that can be customized with your own agent assessment questions, an administration script, and a Microsoft SQL Server database separate from the IS system database.

Amtelco Releases IS Social Media Monitor

The Intelligent Series (IS) social media monitor translates popular social media posts, messages, and notifications into dispatch jobs that call center agents can manage on behalf of their clients. The social media monitor polls the client’s social media accounts for incoming activity and presents the resulting notifications to the IS server as MergeComm Web API triggers. The MergeComm triggers are presented to agents as dispatch jobs that can be scripted as needed in IS supervisor.

For Facebook interaction, the social media monitor can check a client’s account for keywords, inbound messages, comments about posts, shares of posts, and reactions to posts such as likes and other emoticon-based comments.

For Twitter interaction, the social media monitor can check a client’s account for keywords, inbound direct messages (DMs), replies to account tweets, and for likes, favorites, retweets, mentions, and other reactions to posts by the client.

Amtelco Introduces Text-Enabled Landlines

Amtelco’s Intelligence Series software and MergeComm platform integrate with Infinite Convergence Solution’s (ICS) text enabled number service to allow enterprises to send short message service (SMS) messages to their customers using existing and new landline numbers. Enterprises can use the same toll-free and landline numbers for their messaging and voice customer communication, providing a better user experience.

Amtelco

Amtelco partners with ICS to provide SMS aggregator services to send and receive SMS text messages using a secure web connection to the Internet. Amtelco customers that have already purchased ICS’s SMS aggregator services can text-enable landlines for no additional charge. ICS provides SMS messaging to landlines based on a per message fee. For more information about MergeComm, contact Amtelco at 800-356-9148 or info@amtelco.com.

Amtelco Introduces Genesis Service Level Reports

Amtelco’s Genesis provides reporting on service level statistics for each agent ID, agent ACD skill, agent skill group, and client account. There is also a service level report grouped by interval. Service level reports include color-coded indicators of thresholds that have not been met or exceeded. Benefits of these reports for the call center include improved customer satisfaction and better business management.

The Genesis service level report shows how well skill groups are handling calls assigned to that group.

The Genesis service level agents report shows how well individual agents are handling calls assigned to them.

The Genesis service level client report shows which client accounts received calls, how many quick calls they received, and if a quick call was assigned. This report groups the data by client number and provides visual warnings to show if the agent answering for the client account reached the requirement settings configured in the report parameters, including quick calls and minimum ring counts.

Amtelco

The Genesis service level interval report shows how well agents were handling calls for a specific time interval. For more information, contact Amtelco at 800-356-9148 or info@amtelco.com

What’s New at Amtelco

Genesis IS Web Agent

The Genesis IS web agent application is a scalable client app that makes any personal computer a professional telephone agent station. The web agent can integrate with both hardwired legacy systems and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based Voice Over IP (VoIP) networks. The web agent is an integral component of the Intelligent Series (IS) call center system.

The web agent application is a fully functioning call handling application that performs directory searches, answer and transfer of calls, scripted messaging, dispatching, and on-call handling, all with the portability of being accessible from a web browser.

Preparing for Genesis

In response to the growing need for call centers to quickly have access to the newest Amtelco software features, Amtelco offers contracted services to help call centers get up-to-date with current technologies, assist with projects such as upgrading system software, and help with growth and future development.

To simplify the transition to Genesis soft switching, the Intelligent Series (IS) Transformer is a set of tools that transform information from external sources to the IS database and from the IS database to external destinations.

The IS Transformer Directory/Data tools create Intelligent Series directories using exported data from Infinity and other call center platforms. They also can be used to import data into IS scheduling applications.

Genesis IS Social Media

The Genesis IS social media monitor translates popular social media posts, messages, and notifications into IS dispatch jobs for agents to manage on behalf of clients.

The social media monitor polls the client’s social media accounts for incoming activity on the client accounts and then presents the resulting notifications to the IS server MergeComm web API triggers.

Genesis IS Predictive Intelligence

Predictive intelligence saves time by forecasting who is calling and why they are calling. On incoming calls, predictive intelligence checks its specialized database and uses the ANI to identify previous callers. When predictive intelligence finds a previous caller, it displays the caller’s information to the operator along with a drop-down list that shows the reasons this caller has called before, in order of frequency. Operators simply select the reason for the call from the list, thus saving time and helping to ensure error-free information.

MiSecureMessages

Businesses and healthcare enterprises who need to keep their communications secure use miSecureMessages. All kinds of businesses trust miSecureMessages for communication security. The secure messaging app sends encrypted text, photo, audio, and video content.

The miSecureMessages app has benefits for anyone using call centers for receptionist and messaging services to save time, increase efficiency, and improve security. It offers easy and encrypted messaging that’s perfect for small, medium, and large organizations. MiSecureMessages is an integral part of a complete secure messaging system from Amtelco. This streamlines communications by choosing the integrations that meet the specific needs of each call center team.

Version 4.2.0 features enhanced functionality with the Apple Watch. Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 4 users with Watch OS 5 or later can now read and reply to secure messages from their Apple Watch. Apple Watch now has an added menu that displays which accounts contain new messages.

Amtelco president Tom Curtin stated: “We are very excited to release this highly anticipated app update and would like to thank our customers who enthusiastically volunteered their time to test the update to ensure it would meet the needs of all of our customers. This new version will greatly improve business and healthcare communications for our customers.”

Customers using miSecureMessages may either manually or automatically update the app from their iPhone’s app store. New documentation is available on Amtelco’s TechHelper website for additional support.

The miSecureMessages Apple app provides secure messaging and paging services for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The miSecureMessages Apple app receives notification of secure messages sent from the miSecureMessages web service via the Apple Push Notification Service. Users can view, respond to, and initiate messages to other miSecureMessages users within an organization.

Amtelco’s Genesis Intelligent Series Receives Unify Certification

Amtelco received interoperability certification for the Genesis Intelligent Series call center console solution with the version 8.x Unify OpenScape 4000 PBX (private branch exchange) by the Unify Technology Partner Program, based in Munich, Germany, on December 3.

Amtelco Introduces Enhancement to IS Transformer for Easier Upgrades

Amtelco announces the addition of the Dial String Import Wizard to the Intelligent Series (IS) Transformer Client/Agent feature. The IS Transformer is a set of tools that transform information from external sources to the IS database and from the IS database to external destinations.

The Dial String Import Wizard helps with mass transformations of Infinity dial strings to IS client fields, info pages, and contact methods. Dial strings can be imported from the Infinity system list and individual client accounts or all client accounts. The dial string values can be modified in the dial string import wizard before being transformed into IS without changing the dial strings in Infinity.

When importing a dial string, a value is parsed out of the dial string where applicable. A field type is given to the parsed value based on the dial string. The field types include phone, email, SMS, miSecureMessages, TAP paging, and fax. These field types can create contact methods in an IS directory. Dial strings also can be imported into IS info pages and IS shared client fields.
