Friday Feature: Add New Agents in Under 30 Seconds

This post is part of our Friday Feature series where we look at a part of the NewVoiceMedia platform that you might not be familiar with but we think you might find useful!

We spend a lot of time speaking with team leaders and supervisors in contact centres as we strive to understand the challenges that they are facing in their roles. One thing that is apparent is that business is so much more dynamic today than it has been in the past.

A new marketing campaign that wasn’t mentioned, or a product that has had to be recalled can quickly see inbound calls dramatically increase. As a Customer Service Director you might want to declare “all hands on deck!” and call your IT team, ”How do we get the rest of our employees as part of our contact centre taking calls?”

The stories we hear are anything from “it’s not possible” to “it will take 2-4 days to process”.

Within ContactWorld you can add an agent from anywhere in your business in under 30 seconds and here’s how:

Login to the Service Control Suite if you aren’t already and click on Agents

NewVoiceMedia Service Control Suite

Click New and add in your new agent’s name and the direct line on which they can be reached – an office phone, a home phone, or even their mobile.

Add the agent to your chosen group – a Support Group or Service Group perhaps

Have you had to respond to urgent fluctuations in call volume? How have you brought in other parts of the business to support these variations?
