You may be sending an email blast for a variety of reasons, such as a limited-time promotion, a major announcement, or something else that you want people to be aware of.

Email tracking is a method for monitoring the delivery of email messages to the intended recipient. Get email send, fail, open, and click tracking statuses with notifications to reveal the exact time that an email was received or opened.

Merge Tags (also known as Personalization Fields or Data Tags) allow you to customize templates (such as email, text, etc.) to customize each template specific to the customer, and to keep your customers more engaged. These tags pull from the fields in your system.

Live call or double-listening happens without the knowledge of either party on the call. It is commonly used by supervisors and managers to take notes and provide feedback after the call.

Inbound call routing rules determine how incoming calls are handled, tracked, and distributed based on the callers’ actions. Essentially, inbound call routing is call distribution and may include greetings, IVR, conditional sets, etc.

Users can choose to either use the “webphone,” a VoIP phone to make phone calls through your internet connection instead of a regular landline or a mobile network, or users can forward calls to another phone, such as your home or office number based on their personal preferences.

You can use call forwarding to dynamically route incoming calls to available agents, extensions, or departments that cater to callers’ needs.

Local presence is a clever feature that allows users to make calls using a local phone number. Using local presence can boost the number of calls picked up by customers, clients and candidates as familiar-looking numbers are more likely to be answered

Caller ID provides a digital display of the name and number of an incoming call. It uses online databases, and caller identification tech to identify callers before anyone picks up. Caller ID outputs up to fifteen characters for a name and ten digits for a phone number.

Using a round robin step, you can sequentially route phone calls to multiple destination numbers in a queue. You can set a specific amount of time that each number in the queue should ring before moving on to the next number.

This is a preferred inbound call distribution method if you want to reduce customer waiting time. With this routing strategy, the phone will ring all eligible agents to an incoming call at the same time. The first agent that picks up will handle the customer.

A call flow is a road map to how calls will be handled from the moment they enter the phone system to the end of the call. Call flows can be used to handle even the most complex call scenarios and enable great customer care.

Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is an automated phone system technology that allows incoming callers to access information via a voice response system of pre recorded messages without having to speak to an agent, as well as to utilize menu options via touch tone keypad selection to have their call routed to specific departments or specialists.

Call recording is your business’s ability to record a voice conversation over an audio source. Active calls or conference calls can be recorded and then stored as a digital file to be transcripted or listened to at a later stage.

The pre-recorded voicemail drop feature is simple to set up. Sales reps can record a message before they start calling their prospect list. Once on a call, if the call goes to voicemail, they simply click a button to “drop” the pre-recorded voicemail. The sales rep can then end the call and move on to the next.

Voicemail is a digitally recorded message. When you dial someone and they aren’t there, you record into a digital mailbox a digitally stored voice message to be retrieved by the owner of the mailbox. While voicemail functionality has advanced in the digital age, all systems are similar.

SMS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly known as texting. It’s a way to send text-only messages between phones.

MMS is an acronym for “Multimedia Message Service” and is most popularly used to send pictures or images. Unlike SMS, MMS messages do not have a standard length. MMS messages support the following file formats: .PNG or .JPG/.JPEG file up to 5 MB.

A 10-digit long code (10DLC) is the new industry-led long code solution for North American application-to-person (A2P) business messaging.  “10DLC” is introducing a new component to any business who would like to send a text messages to a customer in North America. Carriers are now stepping in to regulate these messaging programs to better protect their subscribers (your customers) and eliminate the spam going to them. While the experience receiving for mobile users will still feel very much the same, the registration process for businesses to implement these programs have changed recently.

Storage is divided into 2 main categories – file storage and data storage. File storage is allocated space to store files (e.g., attachments, user photos, and documents). Data storage is allocated space used to store records (e.g., Leads, Contacts, etc).

Shape’s Shark Tank is an effective way to breathe new life into old or neglected records. Allow users to claim records that haven’t resulted in a deal via a shared lead pool created using configurable rules. This type of structure can be automated to ensure that opportunities are not overlooked and have the opportunity to be reworked.

QuickFire Connect is a distribution method for inbound leads that automatically notifies all available users that a lead is available to be taken. The first user to pick-up the lead will “win” the lead and the phone will automatically initiate an outbound call to the new inbound lead’s number. This dramatically reduces speed to contact times.

Configuration is when you use native tools in the system to change its behavior or features. This involves tasks like adjusting settings pages rules, adding campaigns, customizing role-based permissions, creating templates, adding business logic and automation, etc. When you configure a system, you’re essentially setting the platform’s “options,” which is available to do for administrative user roles.

A mobile app is a type of application designed to run on a mobile device, which can be a smartphone or tablet. Mobile apps manage to provide users with quality services and experiences viewed and used on smaller devices. Even though device technology today is very sophisticated, mobile app functionality remains narrowly functional. Shape’s cloud-based platform is built with responsive design, meaning an app is not needed, but we have an app available to download to use a lite version of Shape from your mobile device.

Shape’s responsive, cloud based software lets you access Shape from anywhere with wifi, and automatically scales its content and elements to match the screen size on which it is viewed – no mobile app download required, although available! This empowers visitors on mobile devices to use the full power of Shape from their cell, tablet, laptop, etc. while on the go.

2FA is an extra layer of security used to make sure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are. First, a user will enter their username and a password. Then, instead of immediately gaining access, they will be required to provide another piece of information. This second factor either comes from a secret randomly generated identification number emailed or texted to your secondary contact method.

Organizational hierarchy is the ability of either an organization or manager to carry out and coordinate a team to execute their tasks and common goals. Create unlimited teams which involves assigning manager (or director) user roles to a team of users, setting communication and performance objectives to achieve goals, and analyzing reporting to ensure desired results are met.

Shape supports users with varying role and department permissions. Set security and access permission levels to your user roles (User, Manager, Director, Admin, Limited Portal User, Limited Partner User) and customize informational tab views by department. Each user is granted a user role permission that either grants or restricts certain actions in the system. Users can be in multiple-departments if they wear multiple hats in the organization.

Define what data different users, teams, and departments have access to with data sharing permissions and views.

SSL/TLS is an encryption-based Internet security protocol to ensure privacy, authentication, and data integrity in Internet communications. In order to provide a high degree of privacy, SSL/TLS encrypts data that is transmitted across the web. This means that anyone who tries to intercept this data will only see a garbled mix of characters that is nearly impossible to decrypt.

IP whitelisting is the practice of restricting network access to specified IP addresses. Each employee (or allowed user) provides the network administrator with their home IP address, which is subsequently added to a “whitelist” that gives them network access.

The SOC 1 Type II certification verifies that Shape Software has the proper internal controls and processes in place around security and availability. This helps to mitigate risks and ensure that our clients’ data are highly secure.

A well-crafted, user-friendly product manual or user guide can mean the difference between a fantastic customer experience and a terrible one.
