UCCXA - Cisco Unified Contact Center Express Advanced v4

Course Description/Agenda

In this course, you'll build on the knowledge and scripting experience gained in the prerequisite UCCXD course by exploring more advanced techniques in scripting as well as the overall Unified Contact Center Express (CCX) v8 functionality. You'll learn to implement features that extend the functionality of Unified CCX using many of the tools available in the Premium version of the product. You will also invoke behaviors that involve web-based applications, such as Web Callback Option and Leave a Message in Queue.

In this course, there is a major focus on hands-on labs so you can fully grasp scripting and best practices as well as troubleshooting and repairing broken scripts.

  • Exclusive Super Lab: On the last day of class, you'll follow a typical real-world deployment project from design to development and through deployment. Incorporating lessons from UCCXD and UCCXA, this lab provides both IVR and ACD challenges and gives you a better understanding for contact center projects, as well as a blue print for your own solution.
  • Exclusive Trouble Ticket Labs: Four exercises let you troubleshoot and repair broken scripts after you've completed the primary lab exercise. You'll upload broken scripts into the system and debug them to uncover common scripting mistakes.
  • Optional Labs: We've added two optional lab exercises in support of Automatic Speech Recognition and Text-to-Speech in which you'll learn how to use the snu.aef script to upload spoken names for users.

What You'll Learn

  • Configure and deploy Cisco Unified Contact Center Express v8.0 with CUCM 8.0
  • Install and configure all components of CCX to include the operating systems, IP IVR and IP ACD, CCX applications, and client tools such as the CCX Application Editor
  • Implement a call center application
  • Best practices for script design
  • Configure advanced features of resource-based and skills-based routing
  • Explore resource- and skills-based routing, with caller options for overflow queues and different caller options
  • Implement a script that measures Contact Service Queue (CSQ) metrics, such as Expected Wait Times and Agents who are logged on, and then make decisions on call flow
  • Create call-back scripts based upon queue times, including passing enterprise data to the new call
  • Explore integration with Microsoft SQL Server to store sessions in an external SQL database for retrieval at a later time
  • Implement scripts using web triggers for an application instead of a calling trigger
  • Troubleshoot broken scripts using the Debug system in CCX Editor
  • Implement and configure your own scripts based on customer requirements
  • Investigate the use of Time and Holiday Operations and build your own prompt recorder and emergency recorder scripts
  • Implement call options for Caller e-mail and Scheduled Callback
  • Implement call options for Overflow Queues using queue and call statistics

Lab 1: Topology and Deployment

Wire the UCCXA classroom network and image the CallManager and CCX servers for each cluster. Install and configure CallManager. After completing this lab, no additional wiring is required for any later labs.

Lab 2: CCX Installation

Install and configure CCX using the default aa.aef script. This lab features a full, fresh installation of the CCX software and full configuration for the default script to operate.

Lab 3: Telephony and Media

Provision the CCX Server and CUCM Server with CTI Ports and standard telephony and media dialog groups.

Lab 4: Prompt Recorder Script

Build a script that can record up to ten system prompts and automatically upload them to the repository. Add this script to the Repository, configure an application for this script, and test the script.

Lab 5: Emergency Message Recorder

Evaluate and upload an Emergency Message recorder which can be customized for the need to record prompts on a regular basis. Use Reactive Debug to step through the script.

Lab 6: Help Desk Script

Install and evaluate an advanced Help Desk script that will be used as a basis for all other lab exercises and advanced scripting concepts. Use Reactive Debug to step through the script.

Lab 7: Best Practices and Database Access

Configure your server for ODBC Database access and enable the CCX Database subsystem. Explore the use of three specific database steps used in scripts to extract information from a SQL database using the Structured Query Language.

Lab 8: Enhanced - Advanced ACD Solutions

Add to the Help Desk script and explore advanced conc
