Hydra dialler has many clear advantages over non predictive telephone systems,
most notably by way of huge increases in agent productivity.
The Hydra software works through your data (prospects) and not only differentiates between answering machines, busy signals, live responses and fax machines but also notifies managers of agent's performance.
The system works by detecting the live contact whilst anticipating the availability of an agent. It then passes the call to the available agent before it rings. It does this by using a variety of algorithms to adjust the timing of outbound calls and predict the availability of 'idle' agent to respond to a live call. The system regulates the calling process according to the number of agents it anticipates to be available, the average length of the call and historical percentage of calls that are likely to get a live caller.
If fewer agents are available, the dialler should dial less frequently. It is through these self-learning algorithms that 'predictability' of the predictive Hydra dialler comes into action. Where calls are put through and no agent is available (drop calls) Hydra also incorporates a pre-recorded message facility to hold onto a client before he or she is attended by a live agent.
Here's a breakdown of the key feature of the Hydra dialler;
Predictive Outbound Dialling
The Hydra Dialler can simultaneously combine multiple outbound dialling whilst allowing
inbound calls. This allows companies to run both inbound and outbound within one
system, efficiently and professionally.
Using the Hydra dialler over a non predictive system will significantly increase talk time and performance by 300%+. Hydra automatically removes unproductive calls such as no answers, busy tones, dead numbers and answer machines ensuring you get the maximum efficiency from your data and agents whilst remaining OFCOM and OFTEL compliant.
Advanced Inbound Functionality
Hydra will seamlessly blend inbound calls with your outbound dialling activity to optimise agent performance and manage bursts of inbound activity.
Real Time Data Management & Reporting
Hydra provides a reporting interface which give real-time and historic reporting in an easy to read format. Data can be filtered by date, campaign and agent. There is also a "status board" which will give details of logged in agents, dialled calls, agents waiting and call queues
Sophisticated Call Recording
All calls are recorded and can be accessed and downloaded via the management interface. Recordings can be searched by time, date and agent.
Third-party application Integration
The Hydra Predictive Dialler System has the ability to integrate with third-party applications via ODBC connections to it’s back-end MySQL database.
The Hydra agent interface allows for custom scripts to be assigned to your campaigns.
Hydra is a highly adaptable solution which can be tailored to your existing contact and business strategies. Hydra can be configured for your exact business needs, not those of businesses like yours. Hydra can map your existing call centre processes and deliver a solution perfect for your business.
