Kaliope is a completely software/VoIP based advanced contact solution that enables self-service automated call handling and messaging to clients as part of an overall contact strategy. The system is able to handle automated inbound and outbound calls, allowing users to interact with Convergent’s data systems, including automated options to self-serve without the need for an agent. For outbound calls where no contact is made, the system is able to leave personalized voicemails. Kaliope provides substantial telecom cost savings and efficiencies.
Kaliope manages call flow using open standards such as VXML 2.1 and protocols including SIP 711, SIP 729, and H.323. Convergent's IVR technology provides customized routing to any provider or client through its session border controllers and system integration via SIP messaging. If TDM is required, Convergent can also route call traffic via session gateways and supports CTI integration for passing attribute data. Kaliope’s software/SIP-based telecom/IVR architecture is ideal for integration with most telephony platforms. If the customer chooses to route from their VoIP servers, then the customer system could be utilized for call routing to the Convergent SBCs. Likewise any call routing back to the customer could initiate from Convergent’s SIP architecture. Convergent supports SIP Trunking via point to point VPN or IPSEC over the internet.
