TASK CREATING
All calls in Smile IPCC are served due to selected rules, which are called tasks. Task selecting is made
at the time of receiving the call and may depend on such parameters as the source of the call, route of
the call, time of the day, the availability of free agents, etc. By the way of servicing the call, tasks can be
divided into two main types: а call, which is serviced by an agent (task agent), and a call, which is
serviced by an automatic script (task IVR). During the servicing, the call can be passed from one task to
another. For example, at first, a phone call can be serviced by IVR script, and then it can be redirected
to agent's task. Agent, accepted the call and performed a certain work, can redirect the call to another
task (to another group of agents or IVR script).
Task types in Smile IPCC are:
Incoming
Incoming call
Agent
Call that is distributed to operators
IVR
Callback
Call that is serviced by an automatic script. Scripts are created by using
the package Smile Visual CTI or using a special programming interface
(API)

Agent
Call that is distributed to operators
IVR
Call that is serviced by an automatic script
Autodial

the time of receiving the call number of serviced calls matches to the
parameter - the call is ignored («fast busy»)
Turn on the option to record all calls which are serviced by this task
The distribution of the call is made to the available operator, which has
the highest priority for the given task. If the priorities of operators are
equal, the choice between them is carried out in the following way:
 The most available – selects the operator, which is idle the longest
 The least busiest – selects the operator, who was less of all in a
servicing state since the beginning of shift
 Random select – randomly selects one of free operators
 Last served – the call redirects to the operator, who last served it. If
the operator is busy, the call is placed in operator’s queue
 The priority of the last served operator – the call redirects to the
operator, who last spoke with a client. If the operator is busy, the call
redirects based on «the most available» method
 Simultaneously to everybody – the call redirects simultaneously to
all available operators. The operator, who answers the first, receives
the call
 The best answer speed – selects the operator, which answers the
incoming call faster than everyone

CATEGORIES
COS allow distributing calls to certain agents, depending on the calling client. Each group of clients can
be assigned to a specific set of categories. Also, a set of categories are assigned to each agent. Calls from
clients of certain group are allocated only to those agents who have at least one matching category. The
priority of agent on this call is defined on matching category (with a few matching categories - a
category with the highest priority is accounted).
To create a category, click the right mouse button on a node “Categories” and select “Add”. In the
editing window the name and priority of categories must be specified.
Max amount of categories – 32. Priority – any integer
number (the higher the number–the higher the priority).
CLIENTS
Personalized client service is one of the important features of contact center. Client information can be
found in one or several different databases. Each client can have a set of features that make it
identifiable (phone number, e-mail address, password, etc.) and classify (importance, language,
preferences, etc.). Client identification may be performed automatically (when a call comes in),
manually (the customer enters a PIN code) or by an agent, who accepted the call. The classification
allows to group for servicing clients by various tasks. You can create groups of clients on different
classification criteria. For example, a group of clients on a territorial basis, a group of VIP, a group of
English-speaking customers, etc. Groups are also used to form lists of outgoing calls in the
telemarketers’ tasks.
Contact center can identify the clients by telephone number, and any other information stored in the
database. A set of data representing information about the client is given with "Identification card".
In the ID card's field list can include any information that is necessary for the operator to service the
task. The form of ID card can be run on the operator's workplace, when receiving a call. If the client is
not identified automatically (by phone number), the operator can query on any other parameter of
identification card.
To connect the database, click the right mouse button on «Clients» and select «Add data source».

USERS
One of the most important contact center modules - statistics and record conversations. In Smile IPCC to
work with these modules, there are special accounts - "users". For each account are allocated rights to
view the statistics and listening to records of conversations, both on tasks and operators. In contrast to
the supervisors - users can only view the chronological charts. These accounts are necessary to control
the performance of various tasks of contact center. You can assign rights to view the statistics for each
task group, or to different employees from different departments, which would monitor the
implementation of tasks which are assigned to them and report the work.
Users can be divided into groups. To create a group of users, right click on a "Community" node and
select "Create a user group».
To create a user, right click on the group in which you want to create an account and click "Create

OPERATORS AND SUPERVISORS
Operators of contact center perform customer service through a specialized application called "Agent's
workplace." This application communicates with the Smile IPCC server via the TCP / IP network. The
main functions of the workplace are the registration of the operator in the system, servicing calls,
running forms and other applications, control of work. For voice communications software IP phone can
be used, which is a part of the software of the workplace, or external telephone. The supervisor's
workplace additionally includes tools for monitoring and control.
Operators grouped together in order to create the organizational structure. A group can include any
number of operators and supervisors. Supervisor group "sees" only the operators of his group. In
addition to supervisors of group there may be so-called "Main Supervisors" whose powers extend to all
groups. The task list is assigned to each group of operators, which this group will serve. Within the
group, for each task you can assign your own list of operators. The same task can be serviced by
different groups with different priorities.
To create group of operators, click the right mouse button on «Operators» node and select «create
