Teams data driven call routing

Landis Technologies Demonstrates Data Driven Call Routing for Microsoft Teams

Landis Technologies is demonstrating data driven call routing IVRs for Microsoft Teams as part of the Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams. Everything is built using the Microsoft Teams Communication APIs utilizing the Teams Phone System.

“We are glad to be able to demonstrate sophisticated IVR call flows for calls using the Microsoft Teams Phone System” notes Landis Technologies CEO Matt Landis. “Our customers want to do complex call flows using their existing Teams Calling and without complex integration.”

Data driven call routing comes as part of the Landis Contact Center IVR call flow designer engine. The IVR initially includes the following call flow building blocks:

  • Incoming Call Trigger
  • Gather Call Information
  • HTTP Web Request/Response
  • Split/Decision
  • Transfer to LCC Queue
  • Hang-up Call

The IVR is entirely written using the native Microsoft Teams Communications APIs. Landis Technologies will continue to add building blocks to our Teams Contact Center IVR engine for even more sophisticated flows. You can watch a demonstration of the Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams data driven call routing below.

This functionality will be released to the Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams Preview shortly.

Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams Presence

Landis Demonstrates Contact Search with Presence Utilizing the New Graph Presence API

Landis Technologies demonstrates contact search with presence utilizing the new Microsoft Graph presence API.

Landis Technologies managing owner Matt Landis notes: “This is a nice addition to our Teams Contact Center and allows it to show the presence status for users that contact center agents may want to add to a call.” Matt also gives some realworld application feedback on the new Microsoft Teams Graph Presence API, “From our informal, stopwatch based tests it appears the presence for a reasonable amount results (1-30) is typically returned by the API in under a half of a second.”

Also, there are a few items in the presence API that will likely be improved by Microsoft in the future, “Currently the API is not subscription based so applications using it, like the Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams just need to pull the presence regularly so it reflect real time changes. Also, not all presence states, like ‘Out of Office’ are returned.”

You can watch the demonstration below.

Microsoft Teams Call Recording

Landis Demonstrates Microsoft Teams Customer Service Call Recording Powered by the New Compliance Recording API

Landis Technologies has demonstrated Microsoft Teams customer service call recording powered by the new compliance recording APIs which are currently in Preview from Microsoft.

The Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams Preview has had call recording and sentiment analysis functionality for internal Teams users calling into Landis queues previously, but the Compliance Recording API’s enables this new functionality:

  • PSTN Callers into Landis Queues can be automatically recorded via policies
  • PSTN Callers into Landis Queues now can have sentiment analysis shown live and stored
  • All Microsoft Teams clients will show a notification that “Calls are being recording…”
  • Call Recording start and stop can be controlled via the Landis Contact Center agent (based on policy)

Landis Technologies is focusing on customer service recording scenarios at this time. (as opposed to Compliance Recording scenarios). Stored call recording access is protected by robust, granular, access control.
