KooKoo Loves Google Speech

When Google announced the Google Speech API we knew that it was a perfect fit with KooKoo. After all, developers had already built cool stuff on KooKoo like the Apple Siri clone using the unofficial API.

So within a week of Google announcing the beta API for speech, our engineers have now cooked it into the core KooKoo platform. And we are now announcing a limited release of Google speech on KooKoo.

All KooKoo developers can now start using speech recognition in their cloud telephony apps.

  • Call and leave a review and get the text of the review immediately. 
  • Call to raise a complaint and get the complaint in text
  • Say the order number over the phone and get order details. 

The possibilities are endless.

Since now this is part of KooKoo, all our Cloudagent customers can also make use of this to understand their call center operations as well.

Google speech itself is in beta, so it goes without saying that our limited release is also in beta. So, if you want to try this out, please send a mail to sales@ozonetel.com and share your KooKoo username(in case you dont have an account, you can sign up here)

You can test out a basic demo we have created. Just dial 040-30952027 and say something.

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

Mashing up Freshdesk with KooKoo for customer support ticket management

Sorry for the delay in writing a blog post. I have been caught up in too many things since last month(we are growing, so its all good :)) Anyway, this week I thought I will look at how we can use the latest rockstar startup from India, Freshdesk . Freshdesk, as most of you know is one of the best "Social Helpdesk" systems out there. I am sure most of you are already using Freshdesk to support your customers. In this blogpost I will explain how you can add telephony to the mixture. In particular I will show some code which you can use to : Welcome the caller by name Ask him to enter his ticket id Play out the ticket status Connect the caller to the correct agent handling the ticket. Luckily for us, Freshdesk has a very well defined API and it was a pleasure to work with it. The engineers were also very supportive and answered all my queries quickly. So lets get into the code directly. 1. First we need to get the caller information. For this we need to a
