SMS and MMS support in North America
For North American businesses, RingCentral now supports text messages via SMS and MMS for US and Canada and will continue to support 3rd party solutions, Nexmo, for international regions outside of North America.
Structured messages in live chat
Now, you can connect a bot source to create beautifully structured messages. Similar to an interactive voice response (IVR), you can provide customers with a way to identify and qualify their requests in order to get routed to the right person.
4 types of structured messages:
Quick reply: Suggested responses in button format
Rich links: Includes a URL, image, title, and description
Template message: Includes a URL, image, title, and description with buttons
Carousels: Swipeable rich messages ideal for showing a selection of products
Example of Quick reply
Example of Carousel
Routing rules → assign tasks to free agents
Automatically route messages to the agent with the fewest tasks. If two agents have the same number of current tasks, any new incoming request will be assigned to the agent who accepted their last task the longest time ago.
Agent A: no task in progress, last task assigned at 10:45 am
Agent B: no task in progress, a previous task assigned at 10:30 am
The new task will be assigned to Agent B, who had the longest period of availability.
This routing makes it possible to provide an equal distribution of tasks in the event of agent availability. This functionality is only available upon request at the moment and will be deployed for everyone on March 11, 2020. Contact your account manager to activate this functionality.
Reporting and Supervision tools
You can now track Average Handling Time (AHT) on tasks as well as interventions now. Plus, the “Availability per agent” now lets you filter by channel to view availability, occupancy and production.
For example, an Agent connected from 10:00 to 11:00 on live-chat and from 10:00 to 12:00 on social networks shows:
1 hour of production on live-chat
2 hours of production on social networks
2 hours of multi-channel production
Plus, in the supervision by agent view, you can now select a category to filter the agents having this category in their profile.
Updated Product terminology changes for more consistency
ICE → AI Classification Engine
