RELEASE 4.16 - Apr 13, 2022

Live monitoring and coaching module is updated with Finesse gadget for supervisor

Normally the quality management in a contact center is based on a call recording feature. Once the call is recorded a supervisor listens to it and evaluates the agent performance. This means that the agent has to make mistakes prior to be trained.

With the updated Live Coaching module you can coach your agents on the fly:
 - the supervisor uses a Finesse gadget to view the agent calls live along with customer names,
 - the "silent monitoring" feature allows supervisor to listen to the call live,
 - when needed, a supervisor switches to the "whisper mode" and corrects the agent without customer hearing.

Besides that, PhoneUP 4.16 has the following updates:

  • a channel-based licensing is introduced which does not require to configure every single line to be recorded - best for recording non-CUCM segments;
  • AdoptOpenJDK (JRE 11) is integrated;
  • external number masking is implemented to hide client phone numbers from agents;
