We have a client which has some "advanced" ACD needs and would like to know if it is feasible in the UC...
In his current BCM, he has 8 different "chains" :
1 - French Customer Service
2 - French Billing
3 - French Account Payables
4 - French Support
5 - English Customer Service
6 - English Billing
7 - English Account Payables
8 - English Support
In each of these chains, there are a number of agents assigned on different levels... Take chain 1 French Customer Service for example :
Level 1 Agent 1
Level 2 Agent 4
Level 3 Agent 7
Problem is, he wants each of his levels to use the longest-idle rule, and if all agents from a level are busy, call jumps to Level 2 agents, and the longest-idle from that level gets the call.
I have been able to do something like this by using a Basic ACD per level. Each ACD is setup so that the hunt type is longest-idle, and when all agents are busy, they are forwarded to the next Basic ACD that is setup which contains level 2 agents.
Now, if I had only 2-3 chains, this would work perfectly. Problem is, I have 8 different chains with 2 to 4 levels (total of 20 different levels). And I have only a maximum of 10 Basic ACD that can be setup...
Is there something that can be done? Maybe I am using the wrong approach on this problem, or maybe the UC just won't fit in that case?
Thanks for you help, hope I have been clear enough,
With this setup, a more capable solution would be to use CUCME or CUCM with Cisco Unified Contact Center Express for the ACD groups. Depending on the size of the system you need, you could use Cisco Unified CCX with CUCME running on a 2800 or 2900 series router, but this is not supported on the UC500 platform.
