Networked Presence - View Presence for all users at all locations: phone status (on or off hook), Presence profile, forwarding status and the number of new faxes or messages. Users know whether anyone in the wider company is available at a glance and can even request notification of when remote users return to their desk, based on keyboard, mouse or phone activity.
CT Control - CT Control is the brain behind agent call delivery. It lets managers maximize the efficiency of their contact center by giving them control over the delivery of all phone, email, fax and web initiated requests.
Agent Desktop - Agent Desktop lets managers view real-time information on queue and agent performance. This information can also be distributed to as many PCs on the LAN as desired, assisting managers and agents in making the right decisions at the right time.
Custom Announcements - Custom Announce is a sophisticated announcement module that has been proven to significantly reduce abandonment rates in contact center environments.
Callback - Callback allows contact centers to differentiate themselves from their competitors by giving their callers a choice – offering them the option of an automated Callback, eliminating the frustration of waiting in a queue. Callback also reduces the costs associated with callers holding on your inbound free-phone number.
IVR - UCB’s IVR is a total solution that integrates your telephone system, computer infrastructure, databases and business applications, to empower your customers. With IVR, your callers can use their touch-tone telephone to request information.
Multimedia Queuing - Skills-Based Routing - Delivers multimedia communications to your agents in the familiar way their calls are received. Phone calls are delivered to agents via a queue, and so can communications from other multimedia contact channels.
Email Queuing - Increase customer satisfaction by ensuring that email requests are handled quickly and efficiently – not left sitting unanswered or being forwarded around your organization.
Fax Queuing - Managing fax communications can be a headache, but with UCB’s Fax Queuing module you can now queue, deliver and report on fax communications quickly and efficiently.
Web Queuing - Web Callback offers a convenient way for those browsing your website to request a call from one of your agents.
Outdial Queuing - Outdial Queuing dramatically improves the quality, success and productivity of every outbound customer contact by intelligently managing calls from within your UCB solution.
Networked Queuing - No matter what the geographical location or manner of operation (one virtual contact center, ‘follow the sun’, or overflow), Networked Queuing can be used to link contact center sites together in a single operation that is more efficient and productive.
Custom Reporting - The target audience for Custom Reporting is customers who require customization of reporting data to suit their business needs / KPI’s., and sites wishing to incorporate contact center data with an existing reporting or Business Intelligence database infrastructure.
Integration - UCB offers a range of plug-ins and customized solutions to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of your contact center.
