Allows call center managers or administrators to interact with their agents in three ways. First, Monitor connects the manager to join an active phone call as a “fly on the wall” enabling the user to listen to the conversation of the caller, agent or employee without interruption. Second. Coaching links the manager to the employee or agent’s call without notifying the customer. Third, Barge creates an instant three-way conference call. This can be utilized to assist with collaborating with other agents, closing a sale or lead and collecting accurate information or data. All three functions can be activated by dialable phone code or via the stratus manager portal.
