Omnichannel: Chat and Email Processing in the Contact Center
To increase the number of visitors to the store, you need to open your doors wider. Progressive services use this strategy by developing communication tools and feedback services. But how do you distribute the load between agents? Split messengers into groups? Or give agents n-windows to handle all communication channels at once? Various solutions answer these questions, called the “Omnichannel chat”. And now I will tell you about the chat for customer support – our solution, which we announced in the summary article at the end of last year.
Connect not only telephony to Oki-Toki, but also your mail and messenger accounts. Together, they form an omnichannel system for processing all means of communication in one window. At the time of writing this note, integration with Viber and Telegram is available; Whatsapp, Facebook/Instagram are in the pipeline.
The agent’s workplace is located at this linkBoth a computer and a mobile device are suitable for working in chats, which greatly simplifies the recruitment of new agents. The interface is available in day and night color schemes. The Viber chat request is next to the Telegram one, but this does not cause any inconvenience because the dialogue procedure is unified by a single interface. Inquiries are distributed to agents in the form of a chat list. Every request is assigned to a responsible agent who guides the ticket through a funnel of states to its resolution.
Detailed and consolidated reports on agent statuses are already available. There will also be others, as they are not difficult to create. Moreover, your company can compile its own report based on our metrics using the simple Grafana service. Compile all chat events in graphs, use formulas – there is room here for analytics enthusiasts. Of course, control will appear in the “KPI Counter” and “Reports”, we can’t do without them 😉
