Business Hours


Business hours are the configurable times, which set the availability of the 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). A 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..

With the Anywhere365 platform it is possible to set the Business hours of each separate UCC. Outside business hours an alternative message (Message Closed) will be played and customers can be given the opportunity to leave a voice mail.

One day can have multiple Business Hours, for example the morning from 08:00 to 12:00 and the afternoon from 13:00 to 17:00. If the UCC is closed one day, the business hours can be edited, but it is easier to use Holidays instead.
