Making calls from your computer is straightforward with Go Connect Attendant. It will increase your productivity by saving you time and reducing the number of misdialled numbers.
Web page dialling
Go Connect Attendant supports two separate ways of dialing from web pages.
Web pages can be scanned for valid telephone numbers and, when found, they are turned into hyperlinks to make dialing easy. Also, Go Connect Attendant can be configured to provide dialling directly from many web-based CRM packages.
Screen popping allows a CRM contact record associated with an inbound caller’s number to be opened simply by clicking an icon shown in the preview window.
This can be configured to pop automatically if preferred.
The "Auto" tab will auto-populate the "Recent" section with a list of extensions that have been assigned to the same department as the called extension. The Auto tab will also show caller preview data for any integrated CRM/DB application and a customized greeting linked to the dialled DID number.
Select a preferred mode of operation from straightforward mouse driven to standard keyboard controls. Go Connect Attendant also has a special mode for touch screen operation.
Go Connect Attendant allows a greeting script and notes to be associated with the dialed number.* This information can be retrieved from any database listed under the Integrations option in the Configuration menu.
Use a wallboard type view to check if co-workers are available to take a call, are already on a call, are set as DND or if call forward has been set.
Set up personal Presence tabs and configure Go Connect Attendant to present the tab when a call to a selected DID number is received.
The Address Book provides an easy way to create contacts.
Users can search for existing contacts or create new ones easily while on the telephone. The Address book is extended to include CRM contacts when integration is used.
The Call History window contains a list of an extension user's recent calls.
Users can make calls directly from the Call History window.
The video shows the Call History window being used.
Two areas of Skype for Business integration are available through the Go Connect Attendant client when installed on a PC that is also running the Skype for Business client.
Although call control is still done through the Go Connect Attendant client, the Skype for Business user can make calls to other Skype for Business users using the "Call using deskphone" option that is inserted in to the standard Skype for Business menu by Go Connect Attendant. If "Update Skype for Business state when on a call" is checked in the Go Connect Attendant client configuration, the Skype for Business client's status will be automatically set to "in a call" when the handset makes or receives a call, or "do not disturb" when the handset goes to DND.
