You can now add a button to your website. When somebody clicks that button, they can put their number or Skype address in. The UCC will then directly and automatically call the website visitor on the number (or SIP address) of the device he appointed and at the same time hunt for an agent with the proper skill and dials the caller to connect the two parties. All other functionality, such as reporting and call recording are still available.

The routing of the UCC can be based on the presence of the Agents. By adding an Availability Skill the customer can be rerouted to a new location if no agents are available.
Anywhere365 supports a Routing table in the SharePoint settings. With this table it is possible to regulate, based on a regular expression the number(s) to a specific skill. With this feature you are able to route specific numbers or number plans to specific skills. This feature can be used together with a SharePoint workflow, or an Anywhere365 Timer Job, to schedule a specific situation when specific routing can work. Example: If you expect a customer to call, you would like to route that customer only, based on LineURI of SIP address to a VIP skill. Routing can be managed in the Routing library.
In each line in the Routing a Match criteria can be set, following the order the Match lines will be used. When there is a match, the address will be forwarded to either the Skill or the Parent Question. When forwarded to a Skill the caller will directly enter the queue. When forward is to a Parent Question, the customer will enter the IVRInteractive Voice Response (IVR) is a telephone application to take orders via telephone keypad or voice through a computer. By choosing menu options the caller receives information, without the intervention of a human operator, or will be forwarded to the appropriate Agent. at that point. Since the Skill can be a forward skill too, Anywhere365 is able to redirect a call from a specific number directly to another outbound number like mobile, SIP or PSTN.

The integration between Anywhere365 and Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business makes the presence status of call agents available for your UCC. With this feature you can optimize queues by forwarding calls only to those agents that are available. This results in shorter wait times for customers.
The Extension Window can automatically create new lead in CRM based on the information which is available.
Anywhere365 is developed with information sharing in mind. Therefore, it is possible to create an interface between a UCC and any other system. One of the most important interfaces is the one with CRM software. Once a call agent answers a call, and CRM is integrated with Anywhere365, an additional screen pops up and contains all available information of the caller. This might significantly improve the service provided to the caller.
