Chat functionality is one of the most widely used features of standard Lync and Skype for Business. However, in order to establish the connection, the two persons need to be linked. Anywhere365 makes is possible to chat with a group of (federated) Lync and Skype for Business users, by initiating a chat with a group instead of a person.

Anywhere365 is aware of the client capabilities of an Agent and will behave differently based on the provided functionality. Not all devices or applications are able to interact via voice, video, chat, email, etc. As an example, an Agent using a Skype for Business client on a mobile device will have a different set of capabilities compared to an Agent logged in from a desktop computer with the Skype for Business client. Anywhere365 will automatically recognize the agent’s hardware skill set. Skype for Business enabled iPads, Surface Tablets, Android Devices, iPhones or Windows 8 Phones are all supported and part of the capability routing features of Anywhere365.
Image recognition is one of the MS Azure strong points we have incorporated into Anywhere365 for routing purposes.

Because Anywhere365 is combined with the Lync and Skype for Business presence status of call agents is available. This makes it possible to optimize queues by forwarding calls only to those agents that are available. This results in shorter wait times for customers.
With QueuedCallback the customer can leave their number and disconnect the call, but remain in queue. As soon as it is their turn in queue, an Agent with the appropriate Skill will be hunted. Once the Agent answered he will hear a dial tone and the UCC calls the Customer.
One of the major advantages of Anywhere365 is Skill Based Hunting. This makes it possible to select call agents based on their skills. This means that customers will be connected to only those call agents that are actually able to help them. This way of hunting is used for Voice, Chat and WebChat.
When offering a webchat dialogue to your customers, you want your customer to get to the right person as fast as possible. An organization contains employees with a variety of skillsets and routing the customer appropriately can be done by a human distribution (first analyzing the question and then forwarding to the specialist) or let the customer make a selection from a menu to get to the right person. In both cases this can lead to unnecessary dialogue or making it complex and customer unfriendly.
Specific information about the webchat dialogue is already being collected.

- Initial Agent
- Skill Chosen
If you combine this with Machine Learning, you can predict with a certain amount of probability what the correct Skill or the preferred agent should be.

Reducing unnecessary dialogues and frees up resources.
