If you are an IT manager you may have to customize the Telebroad Pbxellent system to the requirements of the office users, phone agents, and call center administrators. Here is an overview of available Telebroad resources to get you started.
The Telebroad system is completely cloud-based and can run with your existing PCs or mobile devices. However, some users – especially call centers agents, prefer to work with a physical IP phone
Before an agent can use his IP phone it must be provisioned – set up with the agent's account details and some network definition so the PBX server can identify it.
Provisioning guidelines for some of the phones we support are available here.

It automatically distributes calls to various queues according to specific criteria and rules which are designated to maximize the efficiency of call placement and overflow.
The ACD Panel includes powerful tools for generating historical reports and live overviews of any active call flows. The user-friendly interface is designed for handling calls in real-time with easy drag and drop functionality. Customized alerts address select call scenarios and ensure the administrator is always on top of the daily operation of the call center.
See detailed user guides and FAQ for the ACD Panel here.
