Key New Features in KPN ÉÉN

Adding New Leads and Contacts

KPN ÉÉN ships with a new CRM Integration library that allows calls from new contacts to be added to the integrated application.

If KPN ÉÉN is integrated to multiple applications, then the Add contact option will continue to show until the contact is added to each application, plus an existing contact in one system can be easily duplicated to another. A contact can be added from multiple locations such as the live call Preview window, Call history and Missed calls pop up.

SmartBusy for Microsoft Teams

SmartBusy for Teams addresses the problem of inbound PBX calls still being received if the user has a meeting scheduled in Outlook, or if they are on a Microsoft Teams Call or Conference.

This feature enables the user to forward an incoming call via their PBX to another destination, such as alternate number or voicemail, based on their combined presence status. The feature will become active/inactive in line with changes to the users combined presence.

For first time users, an initial setup screen has been introduced before the user runs the client for the 1st time. This allows a user to select which devices they will be using.

whats new

Password Expiry

KPN ÉÉN can provide a user notification, counting down when the expiry of their password is imminent. When the notifications begins is configurable.

Support for Salesforce Open CTI API

A new integration has been added for Salesforce called "Salesforce Open CTI". It offers the same functionality as the existing Salesforce integration but is available, as standard, with the lower cost Salesforce Essentials and Professional license types. This is because as it uses the Salesforce Open CTI API rather than the SOAP API which is only available with the Enterprise and higher license types. This significantly increases the number of Salesforce users that can now use our CRM integration.

Although the functionality is the same, it does require some involvement from the customers Salesforce Administrator to complete the set up.


Search Results in Presence

KPN ÉÉN will now produce search results based on starts with rather than contains. Previously a search for Ian, would produce results for Ian, but also names that contained Ian, such as Brian. This will make it easy to search the internal directory for larger organizations.
