The call center phone system in Kenya
ORACO Kenya provides customizable call center software solution for small businesses in Kenya. Also, we have call center systems for large organizations. And companies have the option of implementing the solution either as a cloud based call center or as an on premise call center phone system. Be that as it may, we ensure that the VoIP PBX system implemented remains highly scalable to allow for future needs. This will enable companies to deliver outstanding customer service. Below, we highlighted some of the most innovative call center features in a VoIP PBX system;
Automatic call distribution
Management of call queues remains one of the most important part of the call center system. And every call queue has a strategy for distributing incoming calls among the available call agents. Some of the strategies that can be incorporated into a call queue include:
linear strategy where call agents receive incoming calls in a predefined order
least recently called strategy whereby an incoming call will go to the least recently called call agent
fewest calls strategy whereby the incoming will be directed to the call agent who has completed the fewest calls
lastly, the round robin strategy whereby incoming get distributed among call agents in a round robin schedule.
What is more, music on hold can be integrated into the call queue. Thus, callers can listen to advertisements and other products and services offered by the organization as they wait to be served. On the overall, call queue management has been very useful in shortening caller waiting time leading to improved customer experience.
Unified call management PBX phones have been designed to maintain consistent call quality. Therefore, the call monitoring feature has been added to the VoIP PBX system. This feature has enabled call center supervisors maintain certain level of customer experience. With the call monitoring feature, supervisors can perform the following functions;
When in listen mode, the call center supervisor can listen to the active call but none of the call participants can hear the supervisor
Still, when in whisper mode, the call center supervisor can listen to the active call and can also be heard by the call agent (whisper something to the call agent)
And, when in barge mode, the supervisor can listen to the active call and in fact participate in the call (the participants can have a 3-way call conference)
Besides call monitoring, the VoIP PBX system comes with a built in dashboard illustration performance per agent. All these features have been put in place to help with agent performance evaluation. Also, it provides a simplified platform for training agents. With call monitoring feature, the supervisors are presented with rich data that can be used to improve call center operation. Some of the information mined include agent login and logout, call duration, and call distribution per agent.
Computer telephony integration
The integration of the telephony system into the computer networking infrastructure has been one of the most important development in the telephony industry. Computer telephony integration has brought about efficiency and flexibility particularly when very high call volumes. Furthermore, now we have softphones, that is, a software application with all the functionality of a physical desktop phone. This application has enabled call agents to execute all call handling features through clicks from the desktop. Still, there is a web based switchboard that simplifies call monitoring and call center management function.
With computer telephony integration, call center agents can login into their own user portal. Call agent user portal allows users to view call queues, call status and even check extension settings. Besides the user portal, the supervisor also has a web portal access. The supervisor’s web portal reveals more advanced call center settings for efficient agent supervision. As a matter of fact, the supervisor has more control over the call queue management function.
Call center software
The call center system is not complete without a customer relationship management (CRM). As a call center software company in Kenya, we ensure that the VOIP phone system integrates smoothly with the CRM. Then our clients get to benefit from the value created. And what is call center software? In simple terms, the call center software is the platform upon which call handling features such as automatic call distribution, IVR, computer telephony integration etc. get configured.
Basically, the CRM stores in an organized manner all the important information collected about a caller (customer). The VoIP telephone system can be integrated with any CRM such as Salesforce to create a powerful call center system. This kind of integration enables call agents to easily retrieve client information. Therefore, the call agent will not be asking afresh for information already provided. This setup leads to a more personalized customer experience.
The IVR system
Our VoIP PBX phone system comes with an inbuilt interactive voice response system (IVR). This module enables the telephony expert to create IVR prompts that helps in directing incoming calls. The IVR voice prompts offer guidance to the callers. Thus, the callers listen to the voice prompts in order to select a specific company service or be directed to a certain department.
Be that as it may, the call center system will not be complete without a call recording feature. When enabled, the call recording feature will ensure that all or specific call queues are recorded. The recorded calls can be downloaded and later used in monitoring call quality and training agents.
