Google Talk Integration
February 2, 2010
v0.99o introduces a completely redesigned voice connection wizard, and the option to connect agents via Google Talk/Jabber clients. The new wizard integrates feedback received by our technical support department on the difficulties some call centers’ encountered setting up soft phones like X-Lite and Zoiper with the Hello Hunter predictive dialing platform. Customers and resellers now have 5 connection options, four of which are enabled and available to direct customers. The options are Dial-out, Dial-in (via local access number), SIP Phone, SIP Address, Google Talk/Jabber, and our Flash Web Phone.
Using your Google or GMail account is simple, simply select the Google Talk option and enter your google email address (like firstname.lastname@example.org). The next time a voice connection is required, you will receive an incoming voice call from email@example.com. Accept the call, and add firstname.lastname@example.org to your Google Talk contact list and walla–you are now connected to our hosted predictive dialer platform! To test your connection simply select the Test Google Talk Connection button under the Settings tab.
Google has freeware phone clients available that support ICE for NAT (Interactive Connectivity Establishment for Network Address Translation) which makes setup and configuration a breeze. We hope our network technicians can finally kiss all those firewall and NAT problems good-bye! Google Talk has voice chat clients available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Our predictive dialer also works with the ActiveX control that comes standard on most GMail login screens. If your company utilizes google apps for mail or document hosting, we also integrate with your @company.com google accounts.
