Integrating KooKoo with Salesforce to handle contact calls and generate leads

Customers call your sales people directly. There is no track of these calls. Customer conversation history is not maintained. Customers cannot call a single number for your organization and get connected to their agent directly.

Customer information is present in your Salesforce account. You can manage your calls using KooKoo. We can mashup these two to create a simple customer call management solution in 10 mins.

Allows customer calls on a single phone number. If the caller  is already associated with a RM, KooKoo plays the customer name and connects him directly to RM. Customer case history is updated for the call automatically.
If there is no customer records, KooKoo identifies the available RM and connects the call and creates the case history for the caller automatically.

How to do it?

  1. Salesforce account with sites enabled. You can get one here
  2. KooKoo account. You can get one here
  1. Create a Visual Force page. Setup > App Setup > Develop > Pages > New. Name it as call_management. Paste the code in this link
  2. Create a controller for the above page. Setup > App Setup > Develop > Apex Classes > New. Name it as CallManagementController. Paste the code in this link
  3. Add this page to your site. If you do not have a site, you can create one in Setup > App Setup > Develop > Sites > New
  4. Login to KooKoo and add the URL of the above created page to your phone number.
  5. Publish your KooKoo number and start getting calls. If the caller is present in the Salesforce database, KooKoo greets him with his name and forwards him to his owner. If the caller is not in the Salesforce database, KooKoo automatically creates a lead out of the caller.

That's it. In 5 steps and 20 lines of code, you have a professional phone system integrated with your Salesforce account. You can extend the code above to log the call details etc so that the complete track is maintained in your Salesforce account.

You can do something similar(CTI Integration) for other CRMs also like Zoho, Sugar etc. Will write more blog posts on those soon. This can also be integrated with our cloud call center Cloudagent to have a complete contact center solution.

Integrating Arborjs with Angular to create a live calls dashboard

Arborjs  is a cool graph visualization library. Angular  is one of the best JavaScript frameworks and we have been using Angular in a lot of our front end development. When you handle millions of calls, proper visualization becomes very important. Without proper visualization, you can get lost in the mountains of data. So we spend a lot of time to come up with good visualizations to represent the data. Since we loved the cool way in which Arbor represented graph data, we could not wait to hook it up with Angular. Because of Angular's two way data binding, when you hook up Angularjs with Arbor.js you can get a dynamically updated visualization of graph data with cool animations. To give back to the community, we have put up the code online at Github . Basically we have created an Angularjs directive for Arborjs. Please feel free to fork the code and add extensions and use it for your own visualizations. The code is self explanatory with comments inline. Best way to get s

Telecommunication Revolution & Cloud Telephony

Telecommunication Revolution & Cloud Telephony Every one talking that world power has shifted from west to east, next century belongs to India and China, as China is an aging country, everyone is betting very high on India. To find the reality, I have done a comparative study between India and western countries. The result was really depressing, in most of sectors/areas we are way behind the developed countries, except one sector i.e. “Telecommunication”. You can see in the above picture the call rate, which was at Rs 15.5/min has dropped to less than a Rupee/min. The telephone subscriber base has also increased a rate of 40% YoY (approx.). According to Mar’15 release by TRAI, India has 999.71 million telephone subscriber, now we are in Sep’15. We would have crossed 1 billion mark. This is the overall picture of telephone subscriber, but if we look internet and broadband subscriber base it is also very optimistic. Apart from that recently Airtel has launched 4G servic
