    Telnet takes this a step further, partnering with disaster recovery specialist Plan-B to provide real time online backup and recovery, server and PABX hosting and physical relocation capability in the event of a disaster, to one of Plan B’s nationwide network of recovery locations.

    Telnet has an enterprise-grade unified threat management system, utilising encryption and multi-level password controls to secure access to our computer systems and data.

  • ContactSuite for Outbound

    Let Your Agents Spend More Time Selling

    Sales are your life blood.  ContactSuite Outbound helps your sales agents spend more time selling.

    Power dialing puts your agents in touch with prospects with just one click and ContactSuite’s automated scripting guides agents through each call, ensuring that information is communicated consistently.

    The integrated knowledgebase gives agents immediate access to product information, policies and FAQs and objection handlers help them overcome buying resistance.  Automated address validation ensures that agents record valid customer details.  You can even have email addresses automatically validated.

    Once your agent has made a sale, ContactSuite’s automated workflow can trigger fulfillment processes, such as automatically emailing an information sheet to the customer, or producing a mail merge document for posting.  It can even update other systems needed for sales fulfillment, such as an order entry application or CRM.

    Help Your Agents to Sell More

    A sales agent’s job is hard enough as it is.  ContactSuite Outbound helps your agents to focus on selling, without having to worry about the sales process itself.

    ContactSuite lets agents easily view the interactions a prospect or customer has had with your business in the past.  Agents can use this information to guide how they interact with the customer, perhaps offering an upsell or a cross-sell, or creating rapport by referring to a previous interaction.

    Scripting helps agents follow a sales process honed from previous campaigns – one that generates good sales and low complaint levels.  Scripts can be updated in real-time so improvements can be rolled out continuously through the sales campaign.

    Treat Your Prospects and Customers Respectfully

    During dialling, ContactSuite shows the agent details about who they’re calling so they can greet them by name and speak knowledgeably about their potential needs and any previous interactions they’ve had with your business.

    If a customer or prospect wants to be called back for any reason, ContactSuite’s automatic callback feature will prompt the agent to make the call when the time comes.  Or if they don’t wish to be contacted again, with one click, the agent can place the prospect’s details on a Do Not Call list.

    ContactSuite can enforce dialing rules covering how often each prospect should be called and at what times of the day.

    Prospects often ask for more information to help with their buying decision.  ContactSuite can automatically email a brochure or a link to your website and schedule a callback in a few days’ time.

    Know How Your Campaigns Are Going

    It’s vital to always know how your campaign is going and whether your sales agents are performing well.  ContactSuite Outbound eases this challenge with its comprehensive information capture and reporting features.

    Online, real-time reports give you an immediate view of agent and campaign performance and include sales volumes, number of dials made, number of contacts achieved, sales per hour, contacts per hour and even the cost per sale.

    Call outcomes are tracked using Call Conclusions which can be used for reporting and to trigger other actions.  A call conclusion of “Sale” can trigger a fulfillment process or update an agent’s incentive bonus.  A “Not Interested” conclusion can prompt the agent to ask more questions to find out why.  This information is useful for decision making and for fine tuning the campaign.

    Management of leads is another important consideration.  ContactSuite manages the process of loading leads (manually or automatically), de-duplicating leads, checking that phone numbers are valid, washing leads against Do Not Call lists and determining whether a lead should be loaded because it’s been recently attempted.

    No Investment Needed – Just a Monthly Subscription

    Why spend money on expensive telephone and sales campaign management systems when you can just rent them when you need them?

    ContactSuite is a cloud-based service charged for per seat per month with no investment needed in hardware or software.  You don’t even need a telephone because ContactSuite uses your PC to make phone calls.  Just plug in a headset, login to the ContactSuite website and start selling straight away, from anywhere.  Calls are routed over the Internet so you’ll mostly only pay local-call toll charges.

    ContactSuite’s optional call recording feature records every call and stores them online for as long as you need.  You can use the recordings to evaluate agent performance and as a record of each sale or conversation.

    There’s no need to worry about backing up your valuable data – ContactSuite does it all for you.
