- How is my new phone system different from my old phone system?
The NuSutus Phone system is a VOIP PBX, this means the phones themselves connect to a central device rather than having individual phone lines for each phone in the store. The service may still be delivered as analogue by your telecom provider, but will be converted to VOIP once it enters the phone system. The biggest notable differences come in the phone and system features themselves. The ability to LiveCoach calls, configure personalized messaging to promote specials, monitor store performance in real time, and forward voicemails to email, are just a few of the many features now available to you.
- What maintenance is required?
Under normal operating conditions, little to no physical maintenance will be required. The only upkeep that will be required, is making sure to let us know when the store hours change (by season or for specific events or holidays), or when you'd like to adjust specials, add users, or replace any hardware that becomes damaged over time or through usage. You should also pay attention to any alerts the system sends out, as this will be your first indication of trouble.
- What are the various kinds of alerts, and what should I do when receiving them?

- How do I change my messaging?
The general process for messaging requests is to contact us via email at email@example.com with a description of what offers you want to play, which stores you want them to play at, and when you'd like to start playing them. We have a huge library of prerecorded messages and can generally put together most requests within a few business days. We will also always accommodate urgent and immediate requests. In the case when we don't have audio available and can't put a message together, we add it to our script and record it during the next session, which are usually once a month. In some cases we can do a rush recordings, but it depends on the availability of the voice artist. Once the clip is put together we send it off for approval -- and once approved the new message is usually implemented that same day.
You may also record the greetings yourself should you be so inclined.

- Can I tell how my store is doing at a glance?
The NuSutus reporting is the key to any "block and tackle" strategy. This first step is to identify the targets to "block". The easiest target is call answer times. Getting calls picked up in 2 rings or less (12 seconds) will give your customers a feeling that they are important. Answering these calls can be challenging, but there are many options. Train drivers to take calls, set up rotations to pull staff off the make line when the pre-ringer fires, add dedicated CSRs to answer the phone during peak call times. "Tackling" the problem will take time to learn the best strategy, but using the reports will help you understand the field.
Please see here for a sample of the reports:
- What is AOT, and why is it important?
The AOT ("Answered-On-Time') metric is exclusive to Business First subscribers. Calculated as a percentage, AOT measures your store's ability to capture a customer before they've had the chance to change their mind and hang up the phone.
AOT = % of Calls Answered in less than 2 Rings & Zero Hold Time
Since being introduced, our AOT analytics have helped Franchisees improve the customer service experience and, at the same time, motivate employees to provide better service.
Our newest model phones the Polycom VVX301 and VVX401 actually display this statistic in real time throughout the day!
