Delacon Reporting API
Additional enhancements have been made to the Delacon reporting API. There is now greater access to information about captured Google Ads details such as:
• Account name
This feature is beneficial to any customer using the reporting API, who would like additional information about the Google Ads visit.
New Interpretation for UTM Medium
When a user lands on a website with query string parameters- if the Delacon system see a utm medium parameter defined, we will automatically define the source. The “type” column in your call log will show the value defined as utm_medium=.
This feature is useful in that the Delacon tracking code will define the source by tagging it explicitly and will be of benefit to customers who want more granularity on reporting based on standardised utm parameters.
Adobe EVar Enhancement
Enhancements to available EVars for Adobe Analytics, provides users with more thorough datasets and insights.
Update to Change Password Feature in the New Portal
Changing password to master ID (MID) can now be done in the new portal, rather than having to navigate to the old portal to make the change. This new feature was introduced for flexibility and ease of use. Passwords created must meet sufficient complexity criteria.
Upgrade to Cut-Key Selection
The cut key to drop the call or transfer to a survey could previously only be performed from (numerical values) 0-9. Our latest upgrade has enabled the star and hash keys to also be selected as cut-keys as long as call recording pause has not been selected. This function provides greater options for cut-keys to be used for clients who prefer numerical keys for internal transfers only.
Outbound Call Recording IVR
Enhancements to outbound call recording have been implemented to store files in Google Cloud Storage. Previously, files were stored locally on Delacon’s infrastructure and then transferred on schedule. Files for outbound call recordings are now immediately available to be listened to. This feature is automatically available for all clients using outbound call recording.
Delacon have expanded the capabilities of our IVR where an additional IVR can be played out of hours. This can be custom built for clients and allows greater scope for more specific call flows. This IVR is an entirely different IVR to the clients’ regular IVR that gets activated out of hours to enable a different call flow for those who need it.
Offline Call Transcription
Call transcription and related services are now enabled for clients who do not have call recording active with Delacon, but have their own call recordings. We are able to manually upload the recording files for use of Delacon’s Speech Analytics. Clients can experience the full spectrum of Speech Analytics features.
Minimal Spending Enforcer
Minimum spend monitoring- if a minimum spending amount is in place (in the clients’ contracts), this will now be enforced. Each billing cycle will automatically reflect the defined minimum spend if the minimum spend had not been met or exceeded.
Merging of Call Records in the Call Report
With our current IVR service, there are certain configurations that mean every call made will generate 2 call records in the Call Report. This occurs in instances with geographic routing. Our new Call Record Merging feature will combine multiple call records into one, for ease of reporting. Nothing will have to be done to activate this as it is an automated process
Token Instead of Password in New User Tool
Previously when setting up the New User Configuration tool, the person conducting the setting up process would set, and have knowledge of the new user’s password. Now a link will automatically be sent to the end user instead, enabling them to set their own password to further increase security.
Clients’ Delacon Account will be temporarily locked for 30 minutes if a user (master/user/agency/company) types the wrong passwords in 5 consecutive times. Once the user does successfully log in, their failed attempt will be reset to 0. This is another feature important in PCI compliance.
The following enhancements have been made to Delacon’s webhook application.
- Increased the timeout threshold to 30 seconds (previously 3 seconds) to allow more time for a response from the client side endpoint.
- A change of the webhook application from single threaded to multi threaded, which increases throughput and handles multiple concurrent requests more effectively.
- Post call updates (push 2/”update”) will always be sent out if the customer side endpoint responds with a 200/204 message, even if the response does not follow the recommended specifications.
- Other internal optimisations to improve application stability.
