  • Can your solution provide a summary of the customers’ interaction record from Case Management, within your solution agent UI?

    Customers previous interactions can be viewed within the Puzzel Agent Assist feature, here all interactions regardless of their channel for that customer can be viewed. Any data retrieved via a web services lookup function can be added to this interaction record. There are no physical limitations, however, customers are encouraged to consider practical limitations such as screen size and amount of data displayed.

  • Can Puzzel route all channel contacts to a group of agents or an individual agent?

    Puzzel Contact Centre supports several methods to route an inbound interaction to the most appropriate agent for that enquiry. All interactions from all channels are delivered to an agent via a Contact Centre Queue. Skills associated with the agent determine which queues the agent may service, and their priority amongst the pool of agents for that queue. The queue routing mechanism allows for SLAs to be set against all channels of interaction, with the task prioritisation taking place across all channels.

  • Can Puzzel integrate with third-party party products?

    Puzzel’s open software can integrate with CRM systems, speech recognition engines and dozens of other third-party applications to help our customers build the most efficient solution for their contact centre. The Puzzel platform supports a range of tools and connection methods to achieve this, as well as the ability to screen pop customer data within the agent interface.

  • Can Puzzel integrate with Microsoft Teams?

    Yes. Puzzel can integrate with Microsoft Teams via direct routing and, if necessary, transfer calls to subject matter experts directly, leveraging presence in Teams to ensure their availability.
