CTI Call Controls

Controls/buttons on the toolbar change based on the current state of the agent/call and on the telephony event fired from the contact center. Using the communication toolbar, the agent can perform the following actions,

  • Accept an incoming call
  • Hold/Resume/End call
  • Consultative or blind call transfer to extensions
  • Conference call
  • Call wrap-up

* blind transfer in case of CCX only supported in 11.6 or higher.

  • Logout - The agent will need to explicitly logout from the CTI toolbar by providing the Logout Reason Code 
  • Ready / Not Ready - The agent may change the availability status to “Ready” to receive contact center calls or may change it to any of the “Not Ready” states for a break.

Caller Information Popup on Call Arrival (ScreenPop)

The caller information is displayed on the ServiceNow CRM Web Page as soon as the call arrives. If multiple contacts match the connector shows all those contacts for you to choose from. 

Search by Multiple fields

The customer’s ANI is searched against multiple Phone fields which can be configured on the CRM side against the respective (Leads, Accounts, Contacts) entity. 

Search in Leads, Accounts, and Contacts

An incoming call phone number is searched in Leads, Accounts, and contacts. First, second and third priorities can be set. For example, if the priority is Leads → Accounts → Contacts, It first searches into the ‘Leads’ entity and the resulting record is popped up. If the customer record does not match into ‘Leads’ then it searches into the ‘Accounts’ entity and then finally into contacts, if no record is matched in the account.

No ANI Match

In the case, the customer record is not available in either of the leads, accounts and contacts table, the "New Leads" page should be popped up in front of an agent (configurable). The phone call activity is not logged in this case.

Multiple matches

In the case of multiple matches, a list of all the matched records of the respective entity is shown in the drop-down list in alphabetical order. The first record in the list will automatically pop up, however, the agent can also manually select the customer record from the dropdown list and that customer profile will popup.

Note

In the case of a Consult call, On Agent B, System will do the screen pop based on customer ANI. 


Phone Call Activity / Call Wrap-up

A phone call activity is automatically created and linked to the matched caller account in ServiceNow CRM. Any call notes that you write while handling the call are also saved along with the phone call activity and the selected wrap-up code is applied in Cisco Finesse. You can track the call handling status via native CRM reports as well as via the Cisco call wrap-up report.

Click to Call

Call attached data

Call-attached data or call variables are passed on to a CTI Toolbar from Cisco via Expertflow Connector and are displayed to the contact center agent.
