New Skype Certified products in October
In October there have been certified the following new software products:
PrettyMay Call Center for Skype
As the name itself says, this is a call center that handles incoming Skype calls, transfers them, also enables to record them and allows callers to leave voicemails. User can visually build call flow, determine which DTMF tone shall take to next node and what shall happen there, and record voice prompts for every node. At first, user can record a welcome message and say there DTMF tones to take caller to the next nodes, and the same also for the next nodes. Finally, there can be added extension nodes that either transfer call to determined Skype or SkypeOut contact (technically create conference with caller and target) or prompt caller to leave a voicemail (not Skype VM but its own, will be recorded to user’s documents). Also an e-mail address can be set where voicemails shall be sent. All call recordings and received voicemails are shown in a list where user can add comments to every item. After all, there can be created various call flows and specified when (what date, weekday and time of day) every flow is effective.
