Arguments

When Call alert is missing then employee and customer satisfaction will suffer.
The problem is that employees don’t hear incoming calls on Skype4B.

Why?

Because some PCs have no speakers or they are muted and the headset is on the desk – unable to be heard.
This causes a large numbers calls to be missed every day which results in bad performance and frustrations with the new Skype4B telephony system and as such it impacts user adoption. This can have an impact on management decision – causing project delays.

When companies are moving away from desk phones to a softphone environment, some basic functions are lost – in particular, a reliable ringer. This is one reason a huge number of companies still struggle to get the needed user satisfaction when shifting to softphones.
Therefore you need to plan for a successful Skype4B roll out and close the gap on the basic missing telephone functions in Skype4B by including a solution delivers the following:

  • RINGER on incoming calls/IMs
  • Visible notification on missed calls/IMs
  • Make it easy to pick up calls and dial numbers

This is very easily done by including a kuando Busylight with your deployment to deliver the crucial Call alert & fast “call handling” functionality. The ringer in Busylight is tailor-made for Skype4B so you don’t hear unnecessary system noises and avoids an increase is support requirements to configure an audio device which is why Busylight is recommended worldwide by IT departments, HR, management teams, CFOs and Workplace experts among others

Traffic Jams and Office Jams – Companies use “Traffic lights” to help employees work better

Communication between people is the traffic flow of information. Traffic-Jams (interruptions) are frustrating and non-productive which is why a Traffic light (Presence indication) is needed to regulate the flow and improve collaboration.

The Presence concept is a powerful, fast growing collaboration tool being adopted by thousands of companies moving to unified communications – and when used correctly it yields big benefits. It’s a proven concept that gives employees the ability to Visually know When the time is right to approach others in the office.
It’s important to make a successful presence environment which is easy to do with Busylight and kuandoBOX

Make it Reliable – always

The most common reason it is unreliable is because of a lack of integration between Desk Phones and Skype4B. This is easily resolved by adding KuandoBOX which connects to the phone & computer and updates users’ “presence status” when talking on the desk phone.

  • If presence is 100% reliable. People will use it.
  • If not – they won’t.

KuandoBOX and Busylight facilitates a presence environment that is built for success.

Always reliable – Visible anywhere
That is Real-time status!

Users ignore presence because it’s unreliable

A huge challenge facing Facility and HR/Workplace departments is the lack of integration with desk phones and Skype4B presence.
This lack of integration causes the Presence value to suffer for the user and the company

As we know, activity-based, collaborative workspaces are the new way of working, so the Presence concept is essential. It is a powerful, fast growing collaboration tool that is being adopted by thousands of companies moving to unified communications – and when used correctly it yields big benefits.

However, a huge number of companies still struggle to make employees recognize and use presence productively because users ignore presence when it’s unreliable and inaccurate. This is typically caused by a lack of integration between PBX desk phones and Skype for Business/Lync. The good news is that there’s an easy fix.

Here’s how to integrate Desk Phones with Skype4B Presence

The KuandoBOX is a simple solution that connects to the phone & computer and then updates users’ “presence status” when they are talking on their desk phone. It’s that simple!

Now Presence will be reliable and trusted!”
