Channel’s – This may be a department or a third party. For example you may have your Sales calls answered by a Call Centre in America, and your Customer Service calls answered by your Team in India. Setting up Channels enable you to not only manage how calls are routed but you can also record and monitor the performance of these teams through the VoiceRules Analytics.
User – Add multiple users so as with Channels they become available across the platform. You may have multiple Team members scattered around the world or working Remotely. Setting those members up allow you to monitor who is receiving calls, can record those calls and monitor performance via the VoiceRules Analytics.
