We have the setup of HIPCC 7.0 and CVP 3.1 and CCM 4.1, we observed that agent reserve time is going high atleast 12 seconds. if anyone knows how to reduce this reserve time, work around to fine tune it. please advise ASAP.

I suppose you are talking about reserved time in reports.

When an agent is offered a call, that agent is being reserved. So, ringtime (which defaults to 12 seconds) equals reserved time, as the agent is not available for other tasks.

You probably do not want to change the ringtime too much.

HTH, please rate helpful posts.

How about using auto answer on their phones? That will probably bring it down to a half to a full ring. If your agents do not have auto answer it might be in their best interest to let the phone ring as long as possible without invoking RONA.

Yes, ringtime is included in reserved time.

You have two options;

1) Interpret the reports with the knowledge that ringtime is included in reserved time (which is normal).

2) Define autoanswer for your agents to reduce ringtime/reserved time as David suggested.
