Auto Answer for One-X Communicator

Posted: December 20, 2013 in TSAPI


When using Avaya One-X Communicator in a call center environment, it is not possible for an agent to have auto answer of ACD calls. This triggered us to write a tool to solve this problem. The target of this tools is simple, it enables agents answer ACD calls automatically without pressing the Answer button. This will improve operation efficiency and reduce ACHT of the call center.
