MiiTel is a cloud IP-phone powered by revenue intelligence platform which increases sales conversion rate and customer satisfaction rate while decreasing education & communication costs. Although sales agents and customer support agents have an important role in being the direct representative of the company to the potential/existing customers, nobody knows why their performance varies depending on each agent. This is because conversations between agents and customers are BLACKBOX. Agents must be able to “read” the situation by understanding customer’s pain points, answering questions, handling objections and challenges, and more. MiiTel analyzes and visualizes “what” and “how” sales agents are talking with customers (ex.talk:listen ratio, interruption, talk speed, call transcriptions etc.). Agents are able to improve their sales/support skills by themselves based on these quantitative ratings.We have acquired more than 40,000 paid users in 4yrs, and approximately 130M calls are made via MiiTel. Now we have MiiTel for Zoom to analyze Zoom conversations.
