Overview

The SkySwitch WebCentrex Contact Center solution provides the monitoring tools and reporting capabilities needed to manage a typical contact center operation. The focus of this capability is found in the PBX portal when logged-in using the Call Center Supervisor role. The Call Center Supervisor Home page displays statistics and reports related to the call queues that a supervisor manages. When configured the Stats Grid will display custom statistics for your call center which are color coded on a scale of red to green based on lower and upper thresholds of certain call center aspects that you can configure.

Definitions

 Call Center Supervisor Scope - An access level of the PBX Portal that is normally assigned to a Call Center Supervisor.
Home Page/Dashboard - The screen displayed when you first log into the PBX Portal with call center supervisor scope. This is also accessible to users of higher scope than call center supervisors.
Stats Grid - The custom statistics displayed in the top right corner of the Home page that can be configured with a lower and upper threshold.
Lower Threshold - The value set for a call center aspect such that when the lower threshold is reached, the corresponding square in the stats grid will turn yellow. This value should be lower than the Upper Threshold except in the case of the service level agreement threshold. If this is left blank then the color will turn yellow at 70% of the upper threshold.
Upper Threshold - The value set for a call center aspect such that when the upper threshold is reached, the corresponding statistic square will turn red. This value should be higher than the lower threshold except in the case of the service level agreement threshold.
Service Level Agreement - This determines if a call was answered in an acceptable amount of time (in seconds). This is used in calculating the Service Level Percentage statistic.
 Rules

  • Call queues can be configured and modified only by users with a scope of Office Manager/Call Center Supervisor or higher.
  • Only once a call queue is set up can agents be added.
  • Call queues can contain both on-net and off-net agents.
  • Call queues need to have a numerical “name.”
  • Only online agents can be part of an active queue.
  • If an agent's device is not registered then the agent will be considered to be offline.
  • Icon colors represent agent status; grey - offline, green - online, red - online but currently taking a call.
  • Agents that are a part of multiple queues can prioritize one queue over another.
  • Agents are able to indicate the reasons for their availability/unavailability - Logged In, Lunch, Break, Meeting, Web and Other

Home Screen

The following is the home screen for the Call Center Supervisor. From this screen, you can access all of the contact center features.


The most prominent aspect of the Call Center Supervisor Homepage is the Stats Grid. This grid provides a summary of the most important metrics in a simple and concise format.

Abbreviation

Meaning

CW

Calls Waiting

AWT

Avg Wait Time

AHT

Avg Handling Time

ABN

Abandon Rate

CA

Calls Answered

CV

Call Volume

To edit the Stats Grid, click on the Settings button located right above the Stats Grid panel.

The panel below will pop open into a modal box with two tabs. From the first tab, labeled Stats Grid, you can configure Lower and Upper Thresholds for the statistics that you wish to be displayed in the Stats Grid.

Under the General tab, you can configure the Service Level Agreement.

This Service Level Agreement allows you to track whether a call was answered in an acceptable amount of time (secs). This is used in calculating the Service Level Percentage statistic.
 Lastly, the Filter Stats Grid by Queue dropdown bar allows users to only show the Stats Grid for one specific call queue.

Call Center Reports

The portal is able to generate custom reports about call queues. These reports will give a graphical overview of certain statistics of your contact center over a given period of time. These reports can be about the contact center as a whole, queues, or individual agents.

To begin looking at the call center reports, click on the Reports tab from the call center home screen.

Select a date range and type of report that you wish to generate. The available options that are explained below are: Queue Stats, Agent Stats, Agent Availability, Dialed Number Stats and Abandoned.

Queue Statistics

The queue statistics allows supervisors to view specific attributes on a queue-by-queue basis. The attributes are all configurable within the popup.

Each queue has a variety of different parameters that you can view, including volume, calls handled, average talk time, average wait time, abandoned calls and many more. These can be selected from the dropdown on the left side of the popup. Table A, below details each metric.

To select the different settings available to graph for the queue, select the Table Settings gear from the popup. This will bring up a list of checkboxes that will change what fields are in the drop down shown below.


You can now select the specific statistics that you wish to show on your report. The available options are shown in Table A below.

You can click the checkboxes in the first column for Call Queue statistics to graph them individually, as shown in the above screenshot with the different colored rows. Also, clicking on the
