Validated Voice Call Flows

This page summarizes the recognized, validated voice interactions that have been tested and that are supported by Genesys Info Mart. The validated interactions are premise-based flows that involve one or more of the deployed Genesys solutions.

The call flows that are described in this document are intended as examples that you can modify for your environment. However, Genesys does not guarantee results for modified interaction flows.

Important
Voice interactions that are generated by other supported Genesys solutions might yield call flows in Genesys Info Mart that do not directly translate to the call flows that are described in this document. Voice interactions that involve Genesys solutions and are not supported by Genesys Info Mart might yield unpredictable results.

The table below summarizes the validated call flows, organized according to the types of solution that might be deployed in your contact center.

Solution Validated Call Flows

Based on the dialed number, voice interactions that arrive at the switch are queued to an ACD queue that represents a requested skill, service type, or customer segment. Agents who are logged into the ACD queues handle the interactions.

IVR in front of switch

Voice interactions arrive at an IVR that is visible to the IVR Server’s virtual T-Server. The focus of the IVR application can be either self-service or simple front-end identification and segmentation. If the IVR application cannot completely handle the voice interaction, the interaction can be transferred to an ACD queue behind the switch that represents a requested skill, service type, or customer segment. Agents logged in to the ACD queues handle the interactions.

IVR behind switch

Voice interactions that arrive at the switch are queued to an ACD queue, where the ACD positions are actually IVR DNs. The focus of the IVR application can be either self-service or simple front-end identification and segmentation. If the IVR application cannot completely handle the voice interaction, the interaction can be transferred to an ACD queue that represents a requested skill, service type, or customer segment. Agents who are logged in to the ACD queues handle the interactions.

Universal Routing

Voice interactions that arrive at the switch are delivered to a Routing Point. Universal Routing Server (URS) uses criteria such as ANI, DNIS, and the date and time of day to collect information and select an appropriate routing target. Basic targets are ACD queues and individual DNs; more advanced targets are agent groups, place groups, and skill expressions.

Universal Routing assisted by IVR behind switch

Voice interactions that arrive at the switch are queued to an ACD queue, where the ACD positions are actually IVR DNs. The IVR application collects digits and information about the caller, and transfers the call to a Routing Point. Universal Routing uses the collected information to select an appropriate routing target. Basic targets are ACD queues and individual DNs. More advanced targets are agent groups, place groups, and skill expressions.

IVR in front of switch assisted by Universal Routing

Voice interactions arrive at an IVR that is visible to the IVR Server’s virtual T-Server. Through a Routing Point in the IVR Server’s virtual T-Server, the IVR application invokes a Universal Routing strategy. Universal Routing instructs the IVR application to play applications or collect information. Universal Routing uses the collected information to return an appropriate target. The IVR application hook-flash transfers the call to that target.
