We’re excited to introduce a new Call Center add-on for Let’s Talk which allows you to integrate your district’s call center into Let’s Talk — your comprehensive customer service solution. 

Call Center allows your team to take incoming calls, make outgoing calls, and manage call and phone agent queues. Call Center includes Basic Telephony features, plus additional features like round-robin agent queues and IVR routing to maximize your phone management experience. 

Here’s an overview of the difference between Basic Telephony and the Call Center add-on:

Basic Telephony

The Basic Telephony feature allows you to: 

  • Enhance phone management by handling inbound and outbound phone calls and sending and receiving text messages through Let’s Talk
  • Use text-to-dialogue to send and receive text messages through the Let’s Talk dialogue interface 
  • Customize the phone and text customer experience with simplified settings to manage the phone and text workflows, greeting messages, and text replies
  • Answer calls via a phone agent, with VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) which means no additional telephony hardware is required
  • Add up to 10 phone numbers with the ability to add additional phone numbers for an extra fee

Call Center 

The Call Center add-on* includes Basic Telephony functionality, plus the following features:

  • Round-robin phone agent queues, which ensure customers get to a human quickly and no one person is overloaded with calls 
  • Interactive Voice Response (IVR) routing which allows customers to interact with a menu using the keypad on their phone to find the right department 
  • Advanced Call Center management features that allow team leaders to easily manage queues, change phone agent statuses, and listen or join an existing call with call monitoring features
  • Detailed reporting to help you understand call center operations including: the customer experience (CSAT and wait times), agent performance, and call volume
  • Create as many phone menus as needed to get callers connected to the right place
