The Shift Towards More Complex Hosted Systems

by Nathan November 16, 2018

I see more and more customers choosing to go with hosted solutions as their older phone systems become obsolete and need replacing. The decision to choose hosted reporting and management applications is predictable given the common benefits - a predictable monthly cost and a consistently up-to-date, feature-rich experience.

We've seen a major change in how customers are using hosted telephone systems. While hosted users typically had limited requirements in the past, I now regularly see complex call routing, IVRs, queues, hunt groups, etc., with many customers extensively using features that were previously solely the domain of fully-featured on-premises equipment.

Mirroring this shift, we see a corresponding shift in customer needs on the reporting and management-side as well. Where relatively basic call detail reporting sufficed for smaller organizations in the past, many are now reaching for in-depth call quality metrics, analytics, and modelling previously reserved for the largest, Enterprise-sized organizations. Reliability is also becoming more and more of a concern, as businesses rely more heavily on the data for day-to-day business decisions.

These Enterprise-level reports and features have been built-in to Genesis software since 1984, and continue to be developed as customers need more and more specialized features. Our earliest customers were large Enterprises, and although we service businesses with only a few phones (and all those in between), we've always maintained that our customers should all have Enterprise-level features and reliability.

Needing More Accurate or Timely Reporting for your RingCentral System?

by Nathan June 4, 2018

As many RingCentral users quickly realize, call reporting isn't as real-time or accurate as they'd like. Daily call logs are not available until the following day, and the built-in reporting can show issues (e.g. excessive missed calls) which aren't actually occurring but are a result of having more unique installations. Users are increasingly contacting us as their need for timely access to accurate information is not being fulfilled.

We've not only identified the issues that cause most users frustration, but have designed our reporting from the ground up to avoid these issues entirely, while handling the unique challenges of the RingCentral system. The interfaces available to developers - while powerful and reliable - aren't designed for ongoing data collection & reporting like what a typical Call Accounting / Tracking solution would use, and because of this, require an entirely differently designed solution.

The available interfaces however allow for features which are not possible in standard Call Accounting solutions. Some of these reduce the amount of direct administration necessary, others provide access to more timely information, and improve staff safety.

Anyone familiar with RingCentral's built-in reporting will appreciate the flexible reporting and report delivery options built-in to our fully RingCentral-designed solution. Contact us to see how Genesis Call Accounting for RingCentral improves your business oversight, safety, and ultimately, performance.
