What does technology mean?
Your call log in Teams allows you to keep track of all the important calls you make and receive at work, while also reminding you of those other 999,974 spam calls you receive every day. Historically, this record shows us who attended the call, what time and date the call took place, the call duration, and some other identifying facts about each record. However, with the recent update of Microsoft’s detailed call history, you’ll get more insight into specific actions that may have taken place during each call.
Suppose you get a call from someone outside the university. You reply expecting it to be a salesperson, but it’s more likely someone claiming to be from your bank. They hang up and then quickly call your bank on a verified number from their website. The representative will tell you that the previous call was not from him and make sure you change your password just to be safe. Knowing that the last caller was probably a scammer, hang up and go about your day. Later, you receive another call from your “bank” with the same voice on the other end as the alleged scammer. Without discussing the alleged problem with them, you tell them another call is coming and put them on hold. Rather than return to the call, you redirect them to the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Caller ID Spoofing Report Line (1-877-382-4357) in hopes of deterring them.

History of call center technology
The earliest commercial use of a call center dates back to 1957. Time Inc. increased sales of LIFE magazine from a New Jersey call center. Not long after, businesses from coast to coast were adopting the concept of a call center to increase sales. Call centers have not always been a one-size-fits-all solution for a customer service team or retail space. A new piece of hardware exploded in the market. It was the Private Branch Exchange (PBX). Because phone lines were costly to each employee, it was attractive to most businesses. PBXs achieved telephone connectivity by routing all calls in an office through a few business phone numbers. From there, the PBXs are bundled into the telephone network via ISDN and PRI into the public telephone network (PSTN). Fast forward to the 21st century. Consumers and businesses wanted an alternative to their local phone provider. Calls outside of a local area resulted in long distance charges on an ever increasing phone bill. Businesses needed advanced calling capabilities and lower costs.
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) introduced low-cost phone calls worldwide. DSL and cable Internet services paved the way for high-quality voice and video calls to anyone. Call centers today have been a mainstay of large companies for customer support. Contact center agents would handle inbound calls and also make outbound calls. Outbound call centers use predictive dialing capabilities to call many contacts at once. However, predictive dialers with automatic dialing capabilities quickly became a nuisance that required regulatory action. It wasn’t long before VoIP became the technology of choice for call centers. Any business with a broadband connection can handle hundreds of simultaneous calls. VoIP has proven to be reliable and call center technology for live agents. Call center software has grown far beyond business phone service to improve productivity. These tools aren’t just for businesses anymore. VoIP has leveled the playing field for everyone to vastly improve customer interactions. See also: Top 30 call center metrics to increase customer satisfaction
