The sophisticated ACHAT modules organize your workflow and support the management of service quality in your call center:

  • Voice Route:The ACHAT Voice Route ACD distributes all incoming calls as fast as possible to the best suitable agent. VIP customers can be identified and treated accordingly. Skill Based Routing looks for particularly qualified agents.
  • E-Mail Route: Incoming e-mails are distributed by the ACHAT E-Mail Route module just as fast and precise as incoming calls – as well as incoming faxes, SMS or voice mails.
  • Voice Dial: The ACHAT Voice Dial dialer generates outgoing connections. It processes whole call campaigns automatically with predictive and power dialing algorithms and applies preview where appropriate. Fax devices, modems, busy or no-answer are filtered automatically.
  • Web CallMe: With a click on your web site the ACHAT Web CallMe initiates an automatic call of an agent at the customer. So the agent can give e.g. on-line assistance or answer questions.
  • Evaluate: For evaluation of your call center jobs, the ACHAT Evaluate module provides a huge number of different data, which could be freely assigned to statistics. The proprietary ACHAT storing technique yields an unbeatable flexibility to adapt to your specific needs.
  • CTI: The ACHAT Connect CTI interface is the base for the outstanding connectivity of ACHAT to other applications such as CRM systems or branch-specific applications.
  • Work and Control:: The clients ACHAT Work and ACHAT Control show to the agents respectively supervisors their operational environment in real time. This increases the process quality significantly, because the work flow status of individual agents or teams is clearly and permanently visible in detail. The supervisor has a variety of additional functions, e.g. setting alarm criteria, defining communication flows, de/activating agents, or produce statistics.
  • Work clients for the agent´s workplace also run in web browsers, and the web apps are responsive when used on mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones.

ACHAT EXPRESS is the entry version, aiming at partner´s and enabling them to calculate and deploy autonomously. ACHAT ENTERPRISE is the full version, aiming at large enterprises requiring customized communication solutions for their specific business needs.
