Alternate Access® improves call efficiency for Asset Protectors & Advisors Group

October 10, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 10, 2007) – Asset Protectors & Advisors Group has engaged Alternate Access®, a leading provider of converged communications solutions, to customize and install a phone system geared to improve call efficiency. The software-based solution provides call center capabilities that will seamlessly link the company’s two office locations using one phone system.

“Asset Protectors & Advisors Group will realize increased control over call flow, ensuring that each call is handled quickly and effectively,” said Kelly Lumpkin, Alternate Access chief executive officer and director of business development.

Alternate Access used the TeleVantage® IP-PBX phone system as the foundation for the solution. Being software-based, the system allows users to maintain call functionality and call handling capabilities from any location – whether in the office or off site.

Lumpkin explained, “For example, when a salesperson is out of the office, calls are automatically routed to his or her cell phone. If the agent needs to transfer the call back to office staff, he or she can do so without having the caller hang up and redial the office.”

This system provides comprehensive call center functionality via distinctive features including call recording and management reporting. Call recording will allow the Asset Protectors & Advisors Group management staff to review sales calls for quality assurance and provide feedback to sales agents. At the same time, management can check call logs and develop detailed reports to ensure that required call volumes are being met.

Asset Protectors & Advisors Group, located in Raleigh, N.C. and licensed across the United States, is a group of independent representatives that provides training and lead generation for brokers, attorneys, insurance representatives and financial consultants to gain qualified prospects.

“This system provides more opportunity to better serve our agents and clients,” said Tom McDermott, president of Asset Protectors & Advisors Group. “It also provides reporting features for us to track our business.”
