HVS Hosted

HVS Hosted suite overview - Powered by BT Wholesale secure highly resilient servers this is a suite of products providing an "access from anywhere" phone system.  Users have a choice from a range of Polycom and Yealink high-quality desk based handsets from basic display all the way to full-colour touch screen with video options. 

Mobile software apps - in addition to the above handsets hosted users can also use their mobile phone/pads (Android and iPhone) in conjunction with or, instead of their desk phone.  Calls can be switched from the desk phone to the mobile and vice versa.

Inclusive calls - Hosted comes with inclusive call bundles to UK local, national and the main UK mobile networks - 5000 minutes per user

PC and Mac apps - hosted users can also use an app on their desk-based machine or laptop in conjunction with or instead of the above options.  

Call recording - there is an optional call recording facility available on a per-user basis.  Calls to and from any of the above options are recorded and stored on a secure online portal for 6 months (there is a 7-year storage option available).  Users can access their individual calls via their personal portal, its administrators can access all recordings.  There is an archive tool and individual calls can be downloaded (singly or in batches).  Recording can be paused and resumed whilst taking credit card details, for example, to comply with data protection requirements.  

Call logging - This is included as standard with an online portal (personal and site-wide) that stores inbound, outbound, received and missed calls for a rolling 30 day period.  The data is searchable by day, date, time, number, user, group, attendant etc.  The details can be downloaded/exported to CSV for storage and offline analysis.  There are more advance logging features available as an option if required.

Call/contact centre supervisor and agent software - this is useful option if you have groups of agents handling large numbers of calls as their main role to/from lots of contacts.  It includes PC wallboards with live call queues display and more detailed historical call reporting than the standard calls (which in themselves are quite comprehensive).

Receptionist software - – this is a useful option if you have people in a central call answering/handling role - it gives them a better view of users availability and waiting calls.
