The evolution of the outbound contact centre, CyCall is a blended environment to connect your team with more people and create more opportunities. An affordable and professional telemarketing outbound contact centre management and reporting system which can be used to increase revenue opportunities or to simply stay in touch with your customers.
In preview mode, the system will pop the next selected target details up allowing the agent to view pertinent details. CyCall then dials the number when the agent clicks 'ready'. When finished the agent can complete any wrap-up details and then clicks 'ready' for the next target screen pop and 'ready' to dial the number - the cycle is repeated. In this mode the agent controls the pace of each next call.
In Progressive mode the call centre manager enters a wrap up time that allows the agent to complete details after the call - then the next target is popped to the agent and the number is dialled. When the call is completed the agent has the set time to complete details before the next target is popped and the number dialled. In this mode the administrator is enforcing a pace between each call.
Many people confuse a pre-emptive dialer with a 'predictive dialer' when they ask for this type of functionality.
A pre-emptive dialer is preferred by many customers because it provides many of the productive features of a predictive dialer but can be run with less agents. The customer can also control the out-dial patterns and ratios specifically to their preference, and calls are only made when agents are already available.
A predictive dialer however calculates this process using automatic algorithms. If you don't have enough agents and/or reasonably high level call volumes then a pre-emptive dialer may be more suitable.
The CyCall pre-emptive dialling module auto-dials the campaign numbers as agents become available and determines whether they are a 'positive' connection (answered by a person) or 'unpositive' (an answering machine, fax, or modem). Positive Connections are immediately transferred to an agent.
The management interface allows for configuration of ratios of agent to callout patterns and agent availability.
The CyTrack predictive dialer is suited for outbound contact centres of more than 10 agents and for aggressive telemarketing. A predictive dialer works by an advanced call-pacing algorithm that places calls from a list.
The predictive dialer's aim is to ensure a call is ready with a reached contact as the agent becomes available. Unlike pre-emptive, which waits to dial when agents are available, the predictive dialer is calculating when to start dialling for the next contact based on a prediction of when the next agent will be available and the time and number of calls it may take to get that next contact. The predictive dialer maximises the use of the agents and the contact list.
The predictive dialer uses a very specialised and complex algorithm by measuring and automatically adjusting its process to be the most efficient, including considerations such as below:
CyCall can talk to your customer database or Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. CyCall connects to most popular systems right out of the box, including Microsoft Dynamics, Salesforce, SalesLogix, GoldMine, Broadsoft, Maximizer, ACT! and many more.
If you have developed your own CRM or customer service solution, we can work with that too. Our software kits & API's enable you to talk with us and set up your own click to dial, screen pops, storage of key details about the call, voice recordings and more.
Use your CRM or spreadsheet to create segmented lists, which can then be imported into a CyCall campaign.
CyCall campaigns offer a flexible system that can be configured to your requirements, assigned to specific teams and scheduled to call at the most successful times.
In general, washed lists can only be relied upon for 30 days, which is why CyCall allows you to assign expiry dates on your imported lists to ensure compliance.
Exporting post campaign data from CyCall and analysing the results is an excellent way to re-segment and create new campaigns, maximising your efficiency and effectiveness.
Choose to automatically reschedule all unconnected calls, or have agents manually reschedule via a built-in calendar.
If an agent is unexpectedly unavailable, CyCall can reassign the missing agent's calls according to your preferences.
CyDesk is a powerful desktop call control tool integrated into CyCall. Users can quickly and easily update their availability status to any one of the options predefined by the administrator. CyDesk also displays the status of other users and how long they have been away.
If a user wishes to contact another user who is currently unavailable, they can message them or even set an alert to identify when that user becomes available.
CyDesk allow agents to access the caller's detail immediately, enabling them to answer with a warmer, more professional welcome. By integrating into your Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) or database, calls are automatically matched with contacts in your system and the customers information is presented in a screen-pop right on the agents desktop.
When used in conjunction with Outlook, CRM or a database, previous calls are logged and all the customer history (including recorded calls where applicable) are easily accessible at the click of a button.
Due to the flexible web based architecture, supervisors can log in and monitor their teams from anywhere using the powerful tools integrated into CyDesk.
Supervisors can see a log of all the calls made or taken by each agent and when used in conjunction with CyRecord, individual calls can be played back at the click of a button.
Calls can be answered, put on hold and transferred with the click of a button. Agents can select from a range of transfer options; they can SMS or instant message colleagues or have CyDesk alert them once a busy user is made available.
This intuitive and flexible system ensures an efficient and cost effective platform for your organisation, whilst providing the highest quality customer experience.
CyReport is integrated into CyCall and offers powerful reporting tools for system performance, service levels, grades of service and team evaluation. Because what gets measured, gets managed.
