Product description

Contactis D-Desk as a dispatching platform is a fully autonomous and complete system. It may also constitute a product complementary to other solutions offered by Pirios S.A. with ensured excellent integration with such solutions. This specifically applies to the efficient and reliable telecommunication platform PeakOne (handling up to 5,000 thousand simultaneous calls) and Contactis Emergency – a dedicated platform to handle 112 and 99x alarm help-lines and the eCall automated notification system. In such layout it forms a reference, unique and comprehensive solution dedicated to support the services of processes in the Emergency area.

SYSTEM MODULES 

Dispatcher Console

The main module of the system. It determines the organisation and ergonomics of the user screen and provides access to key functionalities from a dispatcher operating perspective. Dedicated contact books presented in the form of lists or buttons. Quick access to alarm numbers. Visualisation and queue service (telephone, radio queues), calls switching and managements (including conference calls).

Event & Recorder Register

The notification module enables the creation of a notification for each call/connection, from the simplest form of memo to a form with advanced logics (use of dictionaries, call script, integration with domain systems). All calls made with the use of the console are recorded and archived. A user with respective authorisation may at any time look up an archived connection (search by number attributes, time, medium) and replay the call. If necessary, the call can be downloaded and sent for analysis. The system enables connection to a selected number directly from the level of the archives.

Contactis Automation

The system offers three information distribution mechanisms utilising IVR tree (Interactive Voice Response), SMS (text messages) and internal messages. The implemented IVR, a system automatically replaying voice announcements, directs and distributes calls to indicated dispatching consoles. The solution is actively supported by Text to Speech technologies (TTS) and ASR technology (ASR – Automatic Speech Recognition). The dynamic messages in IVR trees (information on breakdowns, availability of services, etc.) can be managed from the level of the console by a dispatcher. The option of creating dynamic IVR messages enables reducing the intensity of call traffic directed directly to the dispatcher.

GIS integration

Presentation of positioning data using a map as the interface for management of connections to mobile means of communication. Presentation of mobile users on the map allows the dispatcher to rapidly assign the execution of the task to the closest located field unit to the place of the incident.

Conferencing & Instant Messaging

A module managing the service of conference calls. It enables the dispatcher to add necessary experts and services to the active call throughout its duration. The system supports voice and video conferences. Tracking the continuous status of logged users, an unlimited number of participants, switching planned and ad hoc conference calls, and user management (adding, suspending, accepting voice) are the basic features of the solution.

Online Reporting

This is the environment in which the persons managing the system can track and analyse the work of people operating the console. Continuous monitoring (specialised console) of communication channels and real-time reports enable users/dispatchers to make decisions more effectively based on the insight into the system status from the management centre perspective.
