Manchester, UK - 4th October 2004 – Amcat, a global leader in call centre technology solutions, is unveiling new functionality to provide real-time information for both team leaders and managers to enhance workflow, productivity and quality of call centre contact.

The new features include Dashboard - a browser-based graphical view of real-time data on campaigns and agent performance, and TimeSheets – a workforce management program that enables agent auditing and tracking facilities, allowing detailed management information to be generated that can be integrated with HR or payroll systems.

Dashboard provides a team leader or call centre manager with real time access to project and agent statistics. This enables supervisors and team leaders to more effectively manage inbound and outbound projects and the associated agent workforce. Key benefits include:-
· Agent motivation and performance analysis
· Top 10 agent identification statistics
· Wallboard output of performance information
· Agent and campaign productivity information at a glance
· Visibility of # calls waiting
· Whole campaign statistics using one view

By displaying the Dashboard display via a wallboard or enabling team leaders with desktop displays, you can communicate valuable real time statistics to your teams. Updating continuously, Dashboard gives the team leader or call centre manager the ability to view a real-time leader board displaying their best agents and motivating others to achieve a higher status.

Dashboard also provides the functionality to monitor inbound calls, so that supervisors know how long a call queue is taking to be answered and can re-deploy resources to address unacceptable delays. With visibility of the inbound queue, more agents can be assigned as required.

The purpose of the Timesheet system is to enable agent auditing and tracking facilities, allowing detailed management information to be generated. The Timesheet facility provides the following key features:
· User defined codes for dialler logout or pause periods.
· Management visibility of agent status in real-time.
· Control of agent schedules, for example, allocating a scheduled break to a specific agent for a particular time of day.
· Booking and tracking of agent absences, for example, holiday or sickness.
· Multi-level reporting.
· Secondment of agents between teams.

This functionality provides greater visibility and control over the use and deployment of agents’ time. The accuracy of the data collected enables the system to be used to pay agents or integrate with a company’s payroll. Transferring agents between teams allows the peaks and troughs in call volumes to be smoothed by ensuring that the optimum number of agents are available for each campaign.
