The Council is looking for a solution that provides all of the following options: desktop handsets, soft phones with USB/wireless headsets and a mobile solution (e.g. app that integrates with the system).

Call logging software

To be provided by the supplier or by a third party via the supplier.

Contact Centre

The Council will be looking to a supplier to provide both the wider telephony solution, but also an integrated on premise hosted contact centre solution to include the standard range of contact centre features, like call routing, recording, reporting, real–time management information, IVR etc., but must also include:

— CTi — It is essential that the soft phone within the contact centre solution can integrate with the Council’s current on premise CRM system provided by Kana (Lagan CRM with Java Screen Phone).
