Call Strategies

Define rescheduling strategies such as number of retry attempts and the channel of the attempt, voice or SMS, for selective call results.

Campaign Schedule

Control campaign execution by defining hours of the day, days of the week when a campaign should run.

Start, Stop or Resume campaigns on the go

Toggle to start, stop, and resume ongoing dialer campaigns.  The application keeps track of the point where the dialing stopped and resumes from this same point. 

Contacts that got transferred to the dialer already before the campaign abort, would still be dialed.

SMS/ Chat Campaigns

Choose the campaign channel as voice or SMS.

Add SMS attempts in a Voice campaign to reach customers via SMS if not reachable via voice. You can also run standalone SMS campaigns to send promotions, business reminders or follow ups to customers.

Campaigns over digital channels such as chat (=SMS, Email, WhatsApp, or any chat) would be done with the Expertflow Plugin to Mautic very soon.

Real-time Campaign Reports

View real-time reports in ECM to see the status of a contact in a campaign, in near real-time, such as “Pending”, “Sent to Dialer”, “Connected”.

Historical Reports in CUIC

View consolidated and detailed historical reports to see what happened to your campaigns. Drill down on the call results to see what happened to an individual call.
Different CUIC reports are available depending upon the underlined platform (CCX or CCE).

Digital campaigns (Email, WWW, any chat channel) and CRM integration

With a future release , ECM will be part of the CIM (Customer Interaction Manager) framework, and integrate with Mautic as a plugin. Mautic tracks contacts across websites, organizes contacts and nurtures them through landing pages, forms, web notifications, integrates with CRM systems, automates email campaigns.

The Expertflow plugin extends Mautic by sending chat messages over any chat channel (SMS, Whatsapp, Viber, FB Messenger,…), and receiving responses by a chatbot or an agent.

Expertflow CIM, Hybridchat and ECM has open API’s that can be adapted to Marketing clouds other than Mautic.

Forms as Call Scripts

Design forms to act as call scripts to guide agents during customer conversations OR allow agents to ask certain questions and record customer feedback, to better analyze and address customers’ problems and interests.
For instance, register a new customer order while dialing in a marketing campaign, FAQs to answer frequently-asked customer queries.

Embedded in Cisco Finesse Desktop, it allows you to trigger the right form based on the type of customer query or type of conversation (inbound/outbound).
