For any company, an unanswered call or busy signal can have a negative
impact on sales and customer service. ACD Manager monitors calls and
phone agents for user-specified time and event-based thresholds to
occur. These thresholds are set so service levels can be maintained,
customer service can be improved and lost opportunities can be reduced.
Events include a caller hanging up, agents missing calls, callers

exceeding a specific percentage of agents, or the last agent logging
out. Notification can be via overhead paging, beeper pager (wide area or
onsite), telephone call, bell, strobe light, reader board, or instant
Once ACD Manager detects that an event has occurred, it will take an

instant text message, or transferring the call to another group,
extension or voicemail box. ACD Manager monitors up to 50 ACD groups,
searching for up to eight events per group and can take one action per
threshold. The intelligent look ahead feature checks the status of other
ACD groups to determine if a call will be answered in less time. If it
finds a group that can, the call will be transferred.
ACD Manager provides callers with the option of leaving contact

of time as if they had waited on hold. Agents are not required to dial
the callback number; ACD Manager automatically dials it for them.
Abandoned Call Backs
ACD Manager helps track abandoned callers by capturing Caller ID
information of calls that hang up and placing a callback with that
information in the queue so the next available agent can contact the
