Long Distance Services

0
Your rating: None
Brief Service Description: 
Long Distance and Toll Free Services
Service Description: 
The Long Distance and Toll-Free services are comprised of three service areas: 
 
Long Distance Service – Long Distance service is provided via the UW Alternative Toll Service (UWATS) system. The UWATS system provides detailed call accounting to the subscriber’s department for long distance bill monitor/tracking of usage.  UWATS provides a unique code to each subscriber that is needed to place a long distance call from a campus phone or through one of the remote calling services like UW Direct or Metro UWATS.  To place a long distance call on campus, dial 9 plus the long distance phone number and enter your unique UWATS code after you hear the stutter tones.  For more information about how to dial using UWATS, please visits the Long Distance IT Connect page located here.
 
Regional Call Service (RCS) – Regional Calling Service extends our local calling area beyond the Seattle metropolitan area.  The regional calling area spans as far South as Olympia to North of Everett into Marysville.  Access to this service is included with your campus Dial Tone Service.  More information about RCS can be found here.
 
Toll Free Access Numbers – Toll free numbers allow callers to place long distance calls without having to the pay the normal long distance per minute rate for the call.  Instead the owner of the toll free number agrees to pay the long distance charges (reverse billing).  Note – phone companies do not differentiate between toll free numbers that are dialed from a local area versus ones that are dialed from far away, as such both calls are billed at the same rate.  Toll free numbers can be set to ring to just about any phone number on campus.
 

 

Service Options: 
  • UWATS Long Distance (UWATS)
  • Regional Calling Service (RCS)
  • Toll-free access number (800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844)
 

 

Eligibility:

Brief Service Description: 
Pager service and equipment
Service Description: 

Rates for this service are for FY15

 

A Pager Service Decentralization Project is underway.  The project goal is decentralize administrative control for pager service to the departments that use them.  This guidance was received by UW-IT from the IT SErvice Management Board (an IT Governance Group with membership from campus)
 
Pager service has been arranged through a contract between the University of Washington and a local provider. 
 
The most basic pager is the display/vibrate type, which only displays the telephone number of the number to be called.  The alpha-numeric type allows the person doing the paging to send a message up to 240 characters in length via email or Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). Two-way pagers can both send and receive text messages and have the same coverage as nationwide pagers.
Service Options: 

There are five options for pager service:

  • Local display/vibrate

Your rating: None
Brief Service Description: 
Manage inbound and outbound calls efficiently using telephone and other technologies
Service Description: 

Rates for this service are for FY15

 
A call center may be used for responding to telephone inquiries about a particular product or service. Based on the technology and staffing employed, it is possible to route calls to individual staff based on volume or their expertise with a specific product or service. The set of tools includes a call management system and call recording for quality and training purposes. Examples of large and small call centers include: student support centers, IT helpdesks, language translation services, appointment scheduling for medical clinics, customer support centers, ticket sales, etc.

 

Service Options: 
The components of a call center may include at least one or all of the following options:
 
  • Call Menu and Announcements 
  • Intelligent Routing by time of day or during weekends or holidays
  • Expert Agent - Distribution of calls based on staff expertise 
  • Reporting/statistics - Using the Avaya Centervu call management system to deliver agent reports and call center responsiveness 
  • Call Recording - Using the CXM Call Recording System to record calls  for quality and training purposes.
 
Other technologies include:
  • Enhanced Call Processing(ECP) - Primarily provides the ability to distribute callers to voicemail boxes based on a recorded menu list. ECP mailboxes can also be designed for other call processing functions if required. 
  • Interactive Voice Response (IVR) - provides call routing based on pre-defined prompts and keeps statistics on call volumes. This service can also provide alternate call routing based on time-of-day or weekend and holiday schedules.
  • Customers may require Enhanced Call Processing (ECP) voice mail or Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technologies to manage large volumes of calls or to provide informational recordings. These technologies are used by staff that may not have a personnel-based Call Center, but need to manage a large volume of calls effectively and efficiently.
