In the bottom-half, Product Summary, you can see a breakdown of the same information listed above, but against the 3 product types.

Customers

If you click on the View Customers button you will be presented with the following screen:

 

Go to ‘View Customer’ to view a list of customers, edit customer details or search for a specific customer. The list of customers displays the customer reference, name, date created, product and status (active).

Customers can be deleted or activated from this table, logins can be viewed and customer details can be edited.

By clicking edit, full details appear including contact details, system details and license information.  License quantities can be amended (upgraded, downgraded or new modules added) and saved.


This is a summary page of the Companies you have set-up with Call Analytics along with the package they have taken and their activation status.  If you click on the View button you will be presented with the following screens which just provides more granular detail.

 

Configuration

Once Call Analytics is complete, a New Customer Set Up email, followed by a Password Separate email, is sent to the nominated Company administrators, as noted on the order form.  This email will guide them to the WHC Call Analytics application portal where they can login using their supplied credentials. 

Once in the portal, the administrator should select Configuration to set-up more Users, where they have requested additional admin accounts.  If they are the only one using the portal then this will not be necessary.


Configuration is then divided into:

  • User (includes extensions, divisions, department, cost centres, sites)
  • DDI
  • Customer
  • Logins
  • Tasks and Actions (Scheduled Tasks)
  • ACD Groups
  • Accounts
  • Call Accounting
  • System Settings
  • Compliance

User

This section allows users to add, edit or delete extensions, divisions, departments, cost centres, sites and to upload a directory. 

Extensions are automatically detected when a call is made to or from an extension. Once they are detected, the extensions from the phone system synchronise with the software, so there is no need to manually add usernames, cost centres, departments and divisions to extensions.

It is also possible to synchronise manually using the Broadsoft Sync and Database Sync buttons:

  • WHC Sync (Broadsoft Sync): All extension information such as extension number, name, department and site can be synchronised from the WHC Broadworks directory into the call reporting portal using the Broadsoft sync option. This sync feature is automated and scheduled to run every 4 hours.
  • Database Sync: A database sync will add all extension numbers into the call reporting portal once there has been activity on an agent’s handset.

Percentage gain can be specified per extension as the percentage mark-up on the cost of calls made by that user. For example, this field could be used to set a VAT rate for each extension, for billing purposes.

The rental cost is a fixed charge specified per extension. This fee is applied to an extension when running an extension cost report (in Revenue and Billing Reports).

 

 

Extension archiving enables archiving of extensions. It ensures that a new member of staff using a previous staff member’s extension number does not have historic calls assigned to them. For example, extension 235 becomes extension 235_username when archived for audit purposes. All historic calls will be appended with extension 235_username. Extension 235 then becomes available for the new starter with no call history attached.

DDI

Users can add, edit or delete DDIs as well as assign DDI names and Groups. Data is scheduled every night to sync all DDI information from the phone system to the software.

DDI Groups can be created in the DDI Group menu in order to assign multiple DDIs to one group.

Customer

Customer Directory

Users can add, edit or delete customer details such as company name, contact name, contact number and job title for every customer.

Import Inventory

To import a customer directory, go to Import Inventory. The Import Inventory screen displays the recommended format of data prior to upload.


To upload your data, format your data accordingly, browse your computer to locate the file, select the data you are uploading and click ‘Import Now’.

 

Import/Export Directory

To import/export directories select the User menu in Configuration then click on the sub menu ‘Import/Export Directory’.

 

 


The Import Directory screen displays the format data should be in prior to uploading. It is possible to download a sample file to use as a template:

  • Select extension/DDI/ACD group
  • Click ‘Download Sample’.

To upload your data, format your data accordingly, browse your computer to locate the file, select which data you are uploading then click ‘Import Now’.

To edit your current directory, firstly export the data using the ‘Export Now’ button, edit the file accordingly, then upload your data following the steps above.

Logins

The logins section allows users to setup user accounts for the system, based on the number of supervisor licenses you have ordered on the Order form.

Throughout the system, user accounts provide access to the software Interface and define the level of access specific users have to the system.

Types of User

There are 4 types of user:

  1. Super-user (Supervisor) - This user has full access to the portal and is the mandatory Supervisor that is set-up. Compliance access can only be granted to Super Users, using the ‘yes/no’ selection tool on the Edit Login screen. This provides authorised users access to compliance management. When access has been granted, the Compliance section in Configuration will become visible.
  2. Restricted User (Additional Supervisor) – This is an additional Supervisor User that has access to the entire portal (excluding the configuration section). Access can be restricted, so the user can only access analytics for users that are assigned to a specific reporting level(s).
  3. Insight User (Dashboard User) - This user can access the Business Insight Console only according to the specific groups that they belong to (e.g. departments, divisions, sites). Insight Console will just show pre-defined reports, dashboards and wallboards.
  4. My Console User - This user can only view call information based on their own extension.

Once logins have been created within the software, users will need to assign extensions to login roles to define access rights and supervisor types (groups).

Tasks and Actions

Scheduled Tasks

This section allows users to view tasks that have been scheduled. Users can see the first run time for each scheduled task.

By clicking the edit option, users have the ability to change the time and date of the scheduled task as well as the run interval.  Users can also add or remove email addresses of those that should be sent the report.

 

Scheduled Actions

Each task can be assigned multiple actions.  For example a Manager may wish to receive reports from various departments (actions) on the same date each month (the task).  Scheduled actions for each task can be viewed or deleted in this section.

ACD Groups

ACD Groups and Super Groups can be added to generate reports using the filter ‘All Contact Groups’.

ACD Group

A new ACD group can be added in this section. Each ACD Group should be assigned to a Super Group.

 

ACD Super Group

A new ACD super group can be added in this section. Super groups added here appear in the ACD Group list > Super Group field.

 

Accounts

This section enables users to name Accounts and Account Groups to generate reports based on the filter ‘All Accounts’ and ‘All Account Groups’.

Account

Users are able to add an account and assign each account to an account group.

 

Account Group

Account Groups can be added in this section and will then appear in the list of account groups in the Add Account > Account Group field.

Call Accounting

In this section, call charge tariffs for area codes can be managed.

Cost Editor

 

 

  • Peak Rates: The peak time-period is when most calls are made. All calls between 09:00 hrs to 18:00 hrs are charged the peak rate per minute defined in this field.
  • Off Peak Rates: Off-peak rates are applied outside of the peak time-period. All calls between 18:00 hrs to 09:00 hrs are charged the off-peak rate per minute defined in this field.
  • Weekend Rates: Weekend rates are applied on a Saturday and Sunday.
  • Minimum Charge: The minimum charge for any call dial code can be specified. As an example, if the peak rate is 4.85 and the call duration is less than two minutes, the minimum call charge would apply because the cost of the call did not reach the minimum charge:
  • Peak Rate: 4.85 | Call Duration: 1:50 minutes (1.8) | Minimum Charge: 10
  • * 1.8 = 8.88 (which is below the minimum charge defined).


Charges can be applied to individual dial / area codes in this section. The values can be specified in any currency / denomination (as any numeric value) but should all be specified in the same denomination. Calls charges are per minute based on the value defined for each dial / area code.

Import / Export Charges

Charges can be imported or exported directly instead of adding them individually. Please note, the file should be in .CSV format.

 

 

System Settings

Business Performance Settings


This section enables KPI parameters, trading hours and access codes to be specified.

 

Financial Linking

  • Sale Value: Estimated value of a sale made as a result of a call (the value of the call).
  • Strike Rate Inbound Calls: Estimated success rate of an incoming sales call.
  • Strike Rate Outbound Calls: Estimated success rate of an outgoing sales call.

Trading Hours 

Trading hours can be defined for the working week. Trading hours defined in this section are applied to relevant reports and in filters (trading / non-trading hours) so reports can be generated for specific business hours. For example, weekend data can be excluded from reports to exclude any irrelevant data, such as a missed call at midnight or on a Sunday.

Performance Parameters

The Target Answer Time and Target Wrap-Up Time can be specified (in seconds). The option is also available to synchronise sites or departments with the telephony platform. Please be aware that any manual changes undertaken within the application will be overwritten if this option is selected.

System Settings

An ‘Access Code’ is a call prefix or dial code used to connect to an outside call or extension. The access code specified is automatically removed from reports that display outgoing numbers.

For example, if a user dials ‘9’ to make an outgoing call then dials ‘01712xxxxxx’, the number displayed on a report would be ‘01712xxxxxx’, without any access code.

Compliance

The compliance section provides access to audit reports and masked CLIs. Extension archiving is also a compliance feature which is accessible only to super users / compliance users.

Compliance > Audit Reports


This section displays an audit log showing any changes committed on the portal in a specified period (all user changes that are audited and can be tracked). The audit log can be filtered by Date or User or Entity or Action. These audit reports can be downloaded as PDF or CSV file

 

 

  • Audit Field: The field that has been updated by the user and has been audited. It can be any field on the portal.
  • Audit Entity: The field entity that has been updated, such as, Call Record, etc.
  • Old Value: The old value in the field (before the update).
  • New Value: The new name/value of the field.
  • Entity Value: This contains the exact value that has been changed. A ‘View Detail’ link appears in this section where the Audit entry contains multiple changes. Click on View Detail to view all changes/deletions for this audited entry.
  • Audit Category: This is the section of the portal in which changes have been made, such as Configuration.

Mask CLI

Numbers can be added to the list of excluded CLIs to exclude the number from reports. When added to the list, the last five digits of any number are masked with an asterisk (*) in historical data. To mask number in future call data the checkbox ‘Mask CLI for Future Calls’ should be ticked. A number added to the list of CLIs masked for future calls can also be deleted from the list.

 

Extension Archiving

Extension archiving enables archiving of extensions. It ensures that a new member of staff using a previous staff member’s extension number does not have historic calls assigned to them. For more details see the Configuration > User section of this guide.

Revenue and Billing Reports

This folder contains reports that display potential revenue opportunities and billing information by extension and department. These reports can be useful for charging on the cost of calls to a particular extension.

  • The call cost is calculated by applying the cost specified in the Cost Editor.
  • The percentage gain (on the cost of the call) can be defined for each extension (Configuration > User > Extension) as well as the fixed rental charge.

The estimated revenue generated by extension or department is based on values specified in the Business Performance Settings section of Configuration.For example; the call duration of number ‘01739’ is 00:00:30. The Peak Value set in the Cost Editor is 4.85. Therefore, the call cost is calculated as 4.85 * 0.5 = 2.425 (rounded up to 2 decimal places) = 0.02. The percentage gain is applied to this cost, to calculate the total charge.Based on call tariffs in the Cost Editor (Configuration > Call Accounting > Cost Editor), calls can be rated using the call cost, gain and rental charge.

  • The total estimated revenue is equal to the total estimated revenue outgoing and incoming. This total estimated revenue reflects the total potential revenue opportunity based on the total calls.
  • The total estimated revenue on outgoing calls is the potential revenue opportunity on outgoing calls. This value is calculated based on the outgoing ‘strike rate’ as defined in System Settings > Business Performance Settings. For example; if the outgoing strike rate is 6 and the average sales value per call is 5.60, on 10 outgoing calls the estimated revenue on outgoing calls (Est. Revenue Outgoing) would be 9.33, calculated as follows:
  • 10 calls / 6 = 1.666
  • 666 * 5.6 = 9.333
  • The total estimated revenue on incoming calls is the potential revenue opportunity on incoming calls. This value is calculated based on the incoming ‘strike rate’ as defined in System Settings > Business Performance Settings.
  • The estimated revenue recoverable is the potential retrievable revenue opportunity on unreturned missed calls. If an unreturned missed call is returned, revenue could potentially be recovered for that call. This value is calculated using the sales value of a call, as defined in System Settings > Business Performance Settings, multiplied by the number of missed calls.

Applying Filters to Reports

 

‘Filter’ is a very powerful tool that gives users the ability to narrow down call information to meet their reporting requirements. Filter options are available on any report and users can access this by simply clicking on ‘Apply Filters’ which presents the following screen.

 

Select Date/Time

 

Users can apply date or time filters to analyse call information for a specific date or time period. Select the Date/Time drop down to select pre-defined dates / date ranges or input custom dates and times.  This filter can be useful when searching for a call at a particular time/date.

 

 

Extensions/Agents

 

This filter allows users to report on individual or multiple extensions/agents, helping to narrow report results to focus only on the extensions/agents of interest.  Users have three options on this filter:

 

  • All Extensions: Users can apply this filter to report on all extensions that are active. By default this option is always applied.
  • Extension Range: Users can enter specific extensions (separated by a comma) or an extension range (using a hyphen).
  • Selected Extensions: Users can select from the list of extensions detected during configuration of the software. Extensions can be selected from the list of ‘Available Extensions’ and moved across to the ‘Selected Extensions’ box using the arrows. Using this filter provides the benefit of viewing extensions by name.

 

Levels

 

A reporting level group (division, department, cost centre, site contact group, accounts, account groups) contains multiple extensions to make it easier to create reports, rather than using filters to manually select multiple extensions.

The reporting level filter has six dropdowns for division, department, cost centre, site, contact group or account/account group. Users can limit reports to show all call data from a single group and/or select particular divisions/departments/cost centres/sites/groups/accounts or account groups using the dropdown list.  All these groups are picked up from configuration of the product.  By default all groups will be selected, however, users can untick a box to select from the dropdown.

 

 

 

DDI/Campaign

 

A DDI is a direct dial number and a Campaign is a group of DDIs. Users can use this filter option to display call information to a specific DDI, Campaign, or multiple DDIs.  Users can use this filter in scenarios where they need to see how many calls were offered to specific DDIs.  There are three options available on this filter:

 

  • All DDIs: Users can apply this filter to report on all DDIs across the software.  By default this option is always applied.
  • Restrict Campaigns: Users can use this dropdown to filter on Campaigns (a group of DDIs).  Campaigns can be set up under Configuration>DDI>DDI Groups
  • Restrict DDIs: The list of ‘Available DDIs’ contains all the DDIs configured in the software. DDIs can be selected from ‘Available DDIs’ and moved across to the ‘Selected DDIs’ box using the arrows to report on specific DDIs. Using this filter provides the benefit of viewing DDIs by name.

 

Call Types

 

This is one of the most useful filters that allows users to remove certain call types from reports, for reporting on selected types of calls.  This section has four options available:

 

  • Incoming Calls: Users can filter incoming calls by answer status (Any, Only Answered or Only Unanswered), routing (Any, Only Transferred or Only Non-Transferred Calls) and/or to include or exclude bounced calls.
  • Outgoing Calls: Users can filter outgoing calls by destination type (Local, National, International, and Mobile) and/or whether direct/transferred.
  • Internal Calls: Users can filter reports to include or exclude internal calls (Any, Only Answered or Only Unanswered)

 

Restrictions

 

These are unique filters that provide extra functionality to narrow down the search further, by destination, call duration and ring time.

 

Users can restrict call information in the following three ways:

 

  • Destination Restrictions: This filter restricts the report to calls to a specific number or a partial number.  For example to only view calls starting with 0044 or to view calls to and from 00441895464019.  Users are also able to search for individuals from the customer directory or to select everyone in a customer directory.
  • Call Duration Range Restrictions: Users can choose to show only incoming and/or outgoing calls with a minimum or maximum specified call duration.
  • Ring time Range Restrictions: Users can use this filter to only show calls with a minimum or maximum specified call ring time for either incoming answered or incoming answered calls.

 

 

 

Report ‘Action’ Menu

 

At the top of every report there are icons which enable users to create a live tile, save as a favourite, save as PDF or CSV, email report or schedule the report. Details of each action follow.

Schedule Reports

 

Reports can be scheduled and sent in the user’s selected language. Any report can be scheduled as a new task or added to an existing task.

 

Firstly, when creating a new scheduled report, the user should click on ‘Create New Task’ then allocate the task a name so it can be easily identified in the ‘Scheduled Task’ list in ‘configuration’. Further reports can be added to this task in order to provide one (or more) person(s) with multiple scheduled reports.

 

One or more email addresses can be entered, then the time, date and run interval for the report can be set. The report should be given a name and the format for the report (CSV or PDF) should be selected.

If the number of records in a report exceeds 20,000 the service will send the report in .csv format (zipped). If the number of records is less than 20,000, the pre-defined format is followed (pdf, html,).

 

A report can be added to an existing task through the ‘Add to existing task’ tab. 

 


Existing tasks appear in a dropdown list to enable the user to select the task to which the report should be added.  Details such as when the report will run, to whom the report is sent, and how often, will appear when an existing task is selected.

 

The user should allocate the report a name and choose the format of the report (PDF/CSV), then save the report to the existing task.  Reports allocated to tasks can be edited / deleted in ‘configuration’.

Common Q&A

 

I have forgotten my login details

 

Go to the login page and click on the link ‘Can’t access your account?’.  Please follow the instructions to reset your password.

 

Why haven’t I received my scheduled report?

 

Please check your junk email settings and add smtpuser@tollring.com to your safe senders list.

 

I have updated the phone system phone book but the changes are not showing in the call analytics portal.

 

The changes will sync automatically and the system will be correct within 4 hours.  To manually sync the data please go to the configuration area and click ‘BroadSoft Sync’.

 

Why can’t I see all extensions in the call analytics portal?

 

There could be 2 reasons for this:

 

  • The extensions could be in an ‘undefined’ site or department.
  • Your permissions might not allow access to all extensions. Please check your permissions level with your administrator.

 

Why can’t I see any data?

 

Please log a support ticket so the team can investigate.
