6 Easy Steps to Prevent Phone Hacking

Phone hacking, also known as “phreaking” costs businesses billions of dollars every year.

Decades ago, hackers accessed the public telephone network using a series of tones input via a “blue box” to fool Ma Bell into allowing them to make free long distance calls.  Now hackers can access phone systems through voicemail ports to make free international calls.

The good news is that there are simple measures you can take to ensure your phone system stays well protected.

  • When installing new equipment, always change the access credentials from the default settings.
  • Never use easy passwords such as 1234.
  • Routinely review itemized telephone invoices for any anomalies.
  • Ask your service provider about their fraud monitoring policy.
  • If you have more than one administrator accessing the telephone system, make sure they use unique access credentials.
  • Whenever staff members leave the organization, immediately disable their access credentials.

Your phone and IT systems are essential to your daily operations. Set up time with TCI to talk about implementing best-practice security measures for your business.

A Fresh Look at Skills-Based Routing in your Contact Center to Improve the Customer Experience

The concept of skills-based routing has been around for as long as there have been call centers – connecting in-bound callers directly to the subject matter experts that can get the job done right on the first call.

New considerations driven by Digital Transformation

Historically, when businesses thought about skills-based routing in their call centers, they typically would organize their groups, and their skills, based on the line of business that the agent would be answering for, or the product line that the agent had expertise to handle. But, in fact, there’s a wide variety of skills that also need to be considered, such as:

  • Business skills like ordering, fulfillment, support and services
  • Industry skills like specialized training or certifications
  • Language skills
  • Passive soft skills
  • Authority for escalations

The Essential Role of Text, Email & Social Media in your Contact Center

In addition to connecting customers to the right people, you’ll want to enable your team to interact with customers over their preferred media. You can exploit new digital communication technologies to improve the customer experience by adding email and web chat interactions, as well as SMS and social media messaging. Of course, all of this adds layers of complexity as you begin enabling new tools and programming routing workflows.

Let TCI simplify the process

Our experts can show you how holistic skills-based routing – enhanced with the latest digital communication technologies – can empower your call center to serve your customers better than ever. Contact us today at (703) 321-3030 or
