AppNote: MaxCommunicator/MaxAgent

What is it?
MaxCommunicator is call management software for the general desktop PC user. MaxCommunicator users can access, configure, and perform several of the system’s PBX functions directly from the desktop, including call handling, call forwarding, voice messaging, extension monitoring, conferencing, and One Number Access. In addition, MaxCommunicator integrates with Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, ACT! , and GoldMine® for caller screen pops and dialing out from these applications. 

MaxAgent is agent call management software that posesses all of the features of MaxCommunicator while also allowing workgroup agents to manage workgroup calls from their computers. It allows direct access to call handling and other functions, including the following: 

•Viewing caller data (for example, IP address, account number, credit card number, name, and so on) sent with an incoming call
•Viewing queue data and other workgroup-related statistics, agent’s performance, and member login/logout
•Exporting and printing workgroup queue and performance data
•Setting up group meetings

MaxCommunicator greatly enhances ease of call handling and feature access. It is highly recommended for most users. MaxAgent is recommended for call center agents, especially those who handle calls from multiple groups.
