Whether you are a call center, brokerage firm or small business CTILink provides an inexpensive link between the PBX and enterprise database. CTILink is highly configurable and supports JScript, VBScript and HTML via it's built in browser window and also includes an extensive COM interface to enable the user to customize both its appearance and behavior.
Using CTILink your business can:
- Display a vanity screen based on the dialed number (DNIS) so the phone can be answered with the correct greeting. This is must for call centers servicing multiple accounts.
- When a current customer dials in, "screen pop" his account based on the dialer number (ANI) so the service rep has the full contact data before answering the phone.
- Dial directly from the contact database. Prevent mis-dialed numbers and speed the dialing process.
- "Power dial" a list of contacts. Automatically call the next contact on a list when the present call is completed.
- Integrate Microsoft Outlook with the PBX. On an inbound call, CTILink will display the name associated with the caller number and optionally display the contact record. Dial out from the Contacts folder or from a Contact Record form. Power dial from any contact folder. Maintain a log of all inbound and outbound calls including date, time, name, direction and duration of the call in a journal folder.
- Telephony enable other CRMs such as TeleMagic, Goldmine and Tigerpaw.
- Provide full telephone control from the desktop including dial, answer, hold, transfer, conference and outpulse DTMF. If the PBX supports Automated Call Distribution, an agent can log in and out, set Make Busy and Do Not Disturb and call Query ACD all from the CTILink interface.
- Access all controls via a phone bar that can be placed anywhere on the computer screen or attached as an app bar to the top of the screen where it will not interfere with other applications. The title bar displays the dialing and dialed numbers, the connection state and if available, the name of the caller for received calls or the destination name for dialed calls.
