Shadow Agent brings call center features to RingCentral with Verizon queues & agents and forced account codes to users in professional firms

Shadow Spaces Presence Client app integration for RingCentral with Verizon

Shadow Agent turbo charges RingCentral with Verizon with enhanced functionality at a fraction of the cost of call center seat licenses. The client adds many of the features that customers demand including disposition codes, forced and voluntary account codes, auxiliary codes, presence override and powerful local Heads-Up Display (HUD).

Disposition, Activity, or Incident Codes

Shadow Agent allows users to tag calls with disposition codes or labels that indicate the call type, reason for the call, the outcome of the call, and the required action. The metrics can later be dissected to provide better insights into product stability, customer experience or resource allocation.

Forced and Voluntary Account Codes

When using the built-in dialer, Shadow Agent can restrict outbound calls to a range of verifiable account codes (sometimes called client/matter numbers or authorization pin). Failure to enter a valid code will not allow the call to proceed. Forced account codes are generally used in professional environments that want to bill for their time spent on calls. Similarly, Shadow Agent offers voluntary account codes for environments that want to optionally tag a call without call restriction.

Auxiliary Codes & Wrap Mode

Auxiliary Codes (or AUX codes) are used to track the time a RingCentral with Verizon user has deliberately chosen to not accept calls. Shadow Agent allows for customizable AUX codes such as On Break, Bathroom Break or On Lunch. Timed states can automatically be set for a user after a call. These states are known as Wrap or After Call Work modes.

Enhanced Heads-Up Display Dashboard and Presence Override

Shadow Agent includes a powerful dynamic local Heads-Up Display (HUD) that can be configured to show specific queues, departments, or users. User administrators (or queue managers) have the ability to change the presence status of their teams. This is especially important when users forget to login/out of specific queues or DND states.

Enterprise Analytics and Call Center Reporting

Shadow Agent tightly integrates with Shadow All In One Analytics (see link: https://link.telecost.com/shadowa1) for account level enterprise reporting, billing integration and real time dashboarding.
