Intended Audience for this Guide
This guide is intended primarily for remote experts and agents who will use either eREAD or READ as
well as administrators who will install and manage the application. This document has been written with
the assumption that the audience has:
•
A general understanding of installation procedures
•
A general understanding of the Windows operating system
•
A general understanding of the Unified Contact Center agent profile
The assumption in this document is that eREAD or READ is deployed along with Cisco Unified
Communications Manager (CUCM) and either UCCE or UCCX.
eREAD and READ Overview
The eREAD and READ solutions make it easier for remotely-located experts or agents of an enterprise
to collaborate with customers who are visiting a branch office of the enterprise. eREAD and READ
allows them to share documents and stream media files to a Remote Expert Interactive Applications
Control (REIC), located at a branch office (see the figure below). The remote experts can also save
session information for future reference when they assist the customer again.
Figure 1

Customer is Located
eREAD and READ includes the ability for the remote expert to do the following:
•
Add customer records
•
Take private or public notes for future reference
•
Reference previously saved notes
•

eREAD Requirements
eREAD uses Cisco Finesse, which is a web-based agent and supervisor desktop for UCCE. Agents use
their browser to access eREAD.
eREAD requires the following applications:
1.
Cisco Finesse 9.1(1)
2.
Direct Connect 1.x installed on the agent’s workstation
Note
Direct Connect will not automatically launch when using eREAD. It is advised that agents create
a desktop shortcut for Direct Connect so that they can quickly launch it when they need it during
a call.
3.
Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 or later installed on the agent’s workstation
4.
Adobe Flash Player 9 or later installed on the agent’s workstation
5.
Firefox 16-21 or Internet Explorer 8 or 9 browser for Windows XP or 7, Firefox for Mac OS
Note
Internet Explorer 9.0 is supported in Compatibility Mode only.
Note
The Chrome browser is not supported.
READ Requirements
READ loads within the Cisco Agent Desktop (CAD) application’s integrated browser and works in
conjunction with Direct Connect, the add-on application installed on a Windows workstation. Thus,
READ requires the following applications to be installed on the remote expert’s workstation:
1.
Cisco Agent Desktop with Integrated Browser (Premium) 9.0 version
2.
Direct Connect 1.x
3.
Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 or later
4.
Adobe Flash Player 9 or later
Cisco Remote Expert Manager READ and eREAD User Guide

eREAD and READ Overview
Direct Connect
Direct Connect is used to collaborate with the customer at the remote branch. The administrator can
configure the solution so that the Direct Connect dialog box appears automatically when the remote
expert clicks the Answer button in the Cisco Agent Desktop. Configuring Direct Connect to
automatically appear when the remote expert answers a call saves the remote expert time searching for
the application. The Direct Connect application can also be configured to close automatically when the
call is disconnected. Either configuration can be disabled, if needed.
Direct Connect requires the following to be installed on the remote expert’s workstation:
•
Java SDK 1.6
•
JRE 1.6
Note
If the Snapshot Capture application will also be installed, then the agent should install JRE
7 instead of JRE 6.
•
Microsoft .NET Framework 4
•
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Runtime Library
See Appendix C for Direct Connect installation instructions.
Cisco Finesse
For release 1.9, RE allows customers to use Cisco Finesse for agents’ desktops instead of CAD.
Cisco Finesse integrates traditional contact center functions into a thin-client desktop. Cisco Finesse is
the next-generation agent and supervisor desktop for Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise providing
easy access to the applications and information required by customer service organization through a
customizable web-based interface. A critical characteristic is that every desktop is 100% browser-based
and implemented through a Web 2.0 interface so no client-side installations are required.

Cisco Agent Desktop
Cisco Agent Desktop (CAD) supports the following operating systems:
•
32-bit Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate
•
64-bit Microsoft Windows 7 running the Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit (WoW64) emulation
layer
The CAD includes work flow configuration and administration that enables administrators to configure
and maintain the appearance and behavior of the CAD. READ uses the voice contact work flow
configuration to display relevant web pages to the remote expert based on call events.
Cisco Remote Expert Manager READ and eREAD User Guide
5
eREAD and READ Overview
Voice contact work flows manage remote expert activity based on voice call events. Once a call is
classified, it is further filtered according to events, rules, and actions.
Figure 2
Voice Contact Work Flows Flow Chart
A voice contact work flow could be set up as follows:
1.
A call comes into the contact center and is routed to a remote expert in the Ready state.
2.
The voice contact classification filter determines which work flow to select. It examines the inbound
call’s enterprise data (original dialed number) and determines that it is a call for Product A technical
support and thus meets the data conditions of Work Flow 1. The call is now subject to the second
layer of filtering set up in Work Flow 1.
3.
Work Flow 1 states that any ringing event on the Product A support line triggers an HTTP action.
This action takes the customer-entered account information from the Interactive Voice Response
(IVR), which is part of the call’s enterprise data and opens a web page in the Cisco Agent Desktop’s
integrated browser that displays the customer’s account information to the remote expert.
4.
The remote expert answers the phone call and is ready to assist the customer.
5.
When the remote expert disconnects the call after serving the customer, a different web page is
displayed such as a check list of actions for the remote expert to follow after every call.
The user and installation guides for the CAD are available from the following links:

Notes keep track of important information related to interactions with customers. Notes created from
previous sessions can help the remote expert remember key points of past discussions with the customer
in the past. This will improve the relationship with the customer and make managing the relationship
easier.
There are two types of notes: Public and Private. The notes created as type PUBLIC will be visible to
the customer when they login to the enterprise portal. The notes created as type PRIVATE are visible
only to the remote experts within the enterprise. All the content in the notes are visible. The remote
expert does not need to double click the notes to read their contents.
Note
Private notes are highlighted yellow so that remote experts can quickly differentiate them from public
notes.

Document Widget
The Document widget holds the most frequently printed customer documents and prints them at the
REICs for customers. The types of files supported in the Document widget are PDF, TXT, and image
(jpg, jpeg, bmp, gif, and jfif.jpe) files.
The Remote Expert Manager (REM) manages REIC information such as the REIC that the customer call
originated from and the peripherals that are connected to that Interactive Experience Client (IEC). When
the remote expert wants to print a document for the customer, the REM sends the document to the printer
connected to the USB port on the IEC where the customer has originated the call.
The remote expert can upload additional PDF, text or image files from their workstation, preview them,
and then print them to the customer.
Note
Documents that are uploaded and printed from the remote expert’s workstation will not be available in
the Document widget pane for future use. Documents must be uploaded into the Remote Expert Admin
Console (REAC). Refer to the Cisco Remote Expert Manager 1.9 Administration Guide for more
information on how to upload documents.
The Documents widget has three panes: a pane that lists all the documents available, the document
preview pane, and a pane that indicates the job status.
Figure 47
Three Panes in the Document Widget
Document Pane
The left pane shows all the server side documents available to the remote expert. If there are many
documents in the window, the remote expert can use the Filter to search for specific documents.

Figure 48
Document Pane with Filter
Document Preview Pane
The pane in the middle is for previewing the document. When a document is selected, a preview of its
content is displayed in this pane. Previewing a document helps the remote expert determine if that
document contains the desired content for printing to the customer REIC.
Figure 49
Document Preview Pane
To view the document’s content, the remote expert can use the side and bottom scroll bars or the View
All button at the upper right corner of the Document Preview pane.
When the remote expert has chosen a document to print to the branch printer, the remote expert clicks
the Print button at the bottom left side of the Document Preview pane. The branch printer is connected
to an USB port on the Interactive Experience Client (IEC). The IEC sends queue information to the
REM, which then displays it in the Job Status pane.

Once the print job is executed by the remote expert, it is not possible to cancel the print job (other than
calling someone at the branch to disconnect the printer). The print status information is only available
during an active session; once the call has been disconnected, the status information is no longer visible.
The following printing states are possible:
•
In Queue: This state is displayed when the document is waiting to be printed.
•
Printing: This state is displayed when the document is being printed.
•
SUCCESS: This state is displayed when the document has printed.
•
Printer Not Found: This state is displayed when an error occurred during printing such as when the
printer is not connected to the setup or the printer does not have toner/ink.
Video Widget
The Video widget is used to:
•
Push a video file to a REIC
•
Select a video that will be streamed while a call is on hold
As with documents, video files must first be uploaded using the REAC before they will display in the
Video widget pane. For information on how to upload them to the server, refer to the Cisco Remote
Expert Manager 1.9 Administration Guide.
There are three panes in the Video widget: the Video pane, the Video Preview pane, and the Video Status

Document Camera
A document camera can be mounted in the ceiling above the customer pod. This camera can be used to
view live video of a document that the customer has brought to the RE session.
The agent can control the document camera in the following ways:
•
Turn the document camera on or off
•
Turn the laser pointer on and off
•
Zoom the document camera in or out
•
Select different presets corresponding to zoom positions
•
Take a snapshot: The Snapshot Capture application must be installed on the agent’s workstation in
order for the agent to take a snapshot. See Appendix D on how to install and configure the Snapshot
Capture application.
Note
Snapshots are stored on the agent’s workstation not a server.
If the agent wants to view a customer’s document during a RE session and take a snapshot, follow these
steps:
Step 1
Ask the customer to place the document under the document camera.
Step 2
Click the Document Camera button on the eREAD or READ to open the Document Camera dialog box.

Peer-to-Peer Sharing (Direct Connect)
The Remote Expert Solution uses the Direct Connect application to enable bi-directional sharing
between the customer and the remote expert (see figure below).
Cisco Remote Expert Manager READ and eREAD User Guide

Additional Collaboration Features
Figure 99
Peer-to-Peer Sharing
If the agent is using READ, the Direct Connect application is launched in CAD when the remote expert
receives a call from a customer. If the agent is using eREAD, Direct Connect will not automatically
launch; the agent will need to manually launch it during the call.
Tip
Agents who are using eREAD should create a desktop shortcut for Direct Connect so that they can
quickly launch it when they need it during a call.

workstation will appear as radio buttons in the Sharing area of the Direct Connect dialog box. The remote
expert clicks on the radio button of the desired application to share that application with the customer at
the REIC.
When an application has been selected for sharing, the application’s window will appear as the active
window on the remote expert’s workstation. The color of the application window turns green to indicate
that it is active (see figure below).

Allow Interaction Check Box
When any of the other windows on the remote expert’s workstation becomes the active window, the
shared application window turns red. When it is turns red, peer-to-peer sharing is placed on hold. The
customer will still be able to see the shared application on the REIC but will not be able to interact with
the application as before.

Figure 105
Application that is Not the Active Window
The remote expert ends the sharing session by clicking the Disconnect button. The Client Status button
turns red to indicate that there is no active sharing session between the customer REIC and the remote
expert’s workstation.
Note
Application sharing using Direct Connect takes precedence over video streaming. If video streaming had
already started or the caller was placed on hold to stream video, when the Direct Connect application is
shared the video streaming stops and the shared application is displayed on the REIC. When the
customer is put on hold during application sharing, Direct Connect is disconnected and the on hold video
is streamed to the REIC. If the agent wants to share an application after the call is resumed, the agent
must repeat the steps to share an application.
Troubleshooting
eREAD/Finesse Issues
The following are issues that the agent may encounter using Finesse/eREAD:
•
Multiple concurrent logins: If the agent is logged into Finesse using one browser and then logs into
Finesse using another browser, the agent will not be automatically logged out of Finesse in the first
browser. This could cause problems if the states of the different browsers are different.
•
Failover error: If the Finesse server is down, you will be redirected to a failover server. You will need
to login to the other server.
Cisco Remote Expert Manager READ and eREAD User Guide

Troubleshooting
Figure 106
•
Failover Message
Call connection error: When trying to call an agent or customer pod directly, the following message
occurs: “Error Call could not be completed.” If you are calling an agent, the agent may not be in the
Ready state or is offline. If you are calling a customer pod, there is another call to the customer pod
in progress or the customer pod is offline. Wait for awhile and then try to place the call again in case
either is just in another call. If you made several attempts to call, it is likely that the destination is
offline.
Figure 107
Call Connection Error
READ/CAD Issues
The following are issues that the agent may encounter using CAD/READ:
•
READ does not appear in CAD: Since READ is a web based application that makes use of CAD’s
integrated browser and the integrated browser is supported in the CAD premium version, verify that
you are using CAD Premium by checking the CAD license. Alternatively, REM may not be running
the correct web services. Contact the REM administrator to verify the web services.
•
When the call is connected, one page such as the sharing page does not display although other
pages show correctly such as the welcome page: Different web pages are scripted in CAD work
flow configuration for different voice events. Check with the CAD administrator to verify the CAD
work flow configuration with respect to the ringing event.
Direct Connect Issues
The following are issues that the agent may encounter using Direct Connect:
•
While answering a new call using READ, the Direct Connect application reports that is unable
to find the application: The most probable reason for this issue is that the Direct Connect
application was not properly installed or not installed in the default directory. CAD is
pre-programmed to execute the Direct Connect application from their default directory in the remote
expert’s workstation. If it is not installed in that directory, CAD cannot launch the application. As a
result, it reports an error.
•
Direct Connect does not pop up when answering a call using READ: Verify that the CAD
administrator has been updated for the Direct Connect invocation event. In addition, verify that the
path for Direct Connect executable is C:\CSI\DirectConnect\bin\DirectConnect\DirectConnect.exe.
Cisco Remote Expert Manager READ and eREAD User Guide
61
Appendix A: Reference Links
•
Direct Connect does not close when the call is disconnected when using READ: Verify that the
CAD administrator has been updated for the Direct Connect Exit event and the path for Direct
Connect close executable is C:\CSI\DirectConnect\bin\DirectConnect\DirectConnectClose.exe.
•
Direct Connect is stuck in “Waiting”: Check the DirectConnect.exe.config file to verify that the
value of the property “cv_service_url” is set to the web service URL.
•
Direct Connect fails to share the application with the REIC: First, verify that the border around
the application being shared is green as shown in the figure below. If it is not green but red, click
the shared window to turn the border green; this indicates that this application window is the active
window. If the border is green but not sharing, verify that the collaboration URL is generated in the
session table for this particular session.
Figure 108
Active Application has a Green Border
Video Pane Issues
•
Video files are not displaying in the Video pane: A call must be initiated from the REIC in order
for video files to display in the widget. If a call originates from a phone (i.e. a phone calling the
UCCX Pilot number), the video files would not show because they could not be pushed to a phone.

Appendix E: Connected Justice
Connected Justice (CJ) is an extension of Remote Expert Manager (REM). It includes two primary
features: Click to Connect and Next Available Interpreter.
Next Available Interpreter (NAI)
The NAI feature has a specially designed user interface for the judicial authority. Court officials, such
as judges or court clerks, are able to use a Remote Expert Interactive Console (REIC) in the courtroom
to initiate an interpretation session to the next available language interpreter.
The REIC will display up to six languages queues with each language having its own button (see figure
below).
Figure 142
Example of CJ NAI Screen for Court Rooms
Cisco Remote Expert Manager READ and eREAD User Guide
91
Appendix E: Connected Justice
When the REM detects a call established between the court room and the interpreter, the NAI loads the
IP phone dialing extensions of that court room into the desk phone of the interpreter via the Extension
Mobility API. This allows the interpreter to call the court room directly and speak to the judge or if the
interpreter has a question about what he or she is being asked to translate.
Click To Connect (CTC)
The CTC feature provides an easy-to-use user interface to communicate between the court rooms and
the remote interpreters. The CTC interface is accessed by the interpreters when they have a scheduled
appointment to translate during a trial or other court proceedings.
Figure 143
CTC Interface
When the interpreter selects a desired court house and court room on the CTC web page, the CTC
initiates a RE call between the court room and the interpreter. The RE call connects the interpreter to the
court room via Telepresence endpoints, such as the EX90. At the same time, the CTC loads the phone
dialing extensions of that court room into the desk phone of the interpreter via the Extension Mobility
API provided by the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM).
When an interpreter has a CTC session, she/he is moved to the “Not Ready” state in CAD; this prevents
the interpreter from being selected if a court official initiates a NAI request.
Step 1
Access the CTC application by entering <CTC_IP>/ctc in your browser. The CTC interface appears.
Step 2
Under Segment, expand the segments, which could be counties, districts, or cities, and choose a court
house.
