Cisco® Unified Communications Solutions unify voice, video, data, and mobile applications on fixed and mobile networks, enabling easy collaboration every time from any workspace.

Product Overview

The Cisco Unified Communications platform allows customers to move beyond simple transactions to provide a unique, content-rich, and customer-centric service through a variety of channels, including voice, web, email messaging, and video - extending customer care beyond the traditional contact center. With these new forms of communication, accurate reporting is vital to the ability to measure and monitor change. Having access to the right data when and where you need it is critical.

Cisco Unified Intelligence Center is a web-based reporting application that provides real-time and historical reporting in an easy-to-use, wizard-based application for Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise and Customer Voice Portal. It allows contact center supervisors and business users to report on the details of every contact across all channels in the contact center from a single interface (Figure 1).

Built on a robust and extensible Web 2.0 framework, Cisco Unified Intelligence Center allows customers to extend the boundaries of traditional contact center reporting to an information portal where data can be easily integrated and shared throughout the organization.

Cisco Unified Intelligence Center provides real-time and historical reporting in an easy-to-use, wizard-based application. To customize how information is presented, the application provides you with a dashboard (Figure 1), which is the canvas for grouping multiple objects together, such as charts, gauges, or grids, to give you a comprehensive view of contact center statistics at a glance. You can develop multiple dashboards to provide a variety of views for any contact center information. And for end users of these reports (Figure 2), you can modify the content through the wizard by choosing the columns to be displayed, specifying the order, applying filter criteria to identify exceptions, formatting values, and renaming columns to suit your needs. This way, the report designers can define a report and allow end users to personalize it on their own, eliminating the need to go back to the designer for small changes.

Another benefit to administrators is the ability to set individual default values for users or groups that define time zones, languages, and other interface preferences. No matter where users are located, when they log in, the defaults assigned to them provide reporting information that is customized for their particular needs.

Cisco Unified Intelligence Center also offers administrators the ability to control access to features, reports, and data by granting privileges only to authorized individual users or groups of users. For example, you can assign each supervisor to a group of agents, skills, and call types that are the most relevant to them so that each report provides focused, actionable insights into data that is germane to their role.

Several features in this product allow you to extend the Cisco Unified Intelligence Center platform beyond traditional contact center reporting and into an enterprisewide information portal. You can use data from nontraditional sources to improve business efficiency and effectiveness. Examples include publishing data from anywhere in your network to provide real-time data on changing conditions in the contact center or adding a countdown widget that marks the time until a new product launch. You also can use HTML post to include live external webpage content or access internal information portals to include in the dashboard, or add a message to your team dashboard through a "sticky note".
