Reception Attendant for Skype for Business

We believe that anybody can be a Contact Center, the reception (or secretarial department) is no exception. For us the reception has always been one of the role models of a Contact Center, with some specific features. For this reason, we created a user-friendly Reception Attendant Console that supports everything a reception needs like queues, breakin, hold, transfer and fallback, Exchange Calendar integration and visitor registration.

Various types of transfers (blind or consultative) can be managed via drag and drop or swipe/touch (Windows tablets). Group transfers (to UCC A Unified Contact Center, or UCC, is a queue of interactions (voice, email, IM, etc.) that are handled by Agents. Each UCC has its own settings, IVR menus and Agents. Agents can belong to one or several UCCs and can have multiple skills (competencies). An UCC can be visualized as a contact center “micro service”. Customers can utilize one UCC (e.g. a global helpdesk), a few UCC’s (e.g. for each department or regional office) or hundreds of UCC’s (e.g. for each bed at a hospital). They are interconnected and can all be managed from one central location.’s) also allow for ‘functional transfers’ if the Anywhere365 UCC platform has been made available to departments and functional groups.
