At-Home Agents Using TCN Agent Gateway

TCN clients using Agent Gateway can easily set up and deploy the TCN system to work with at-home agents via a web browser securely. Typically this is done to limit any disruption to call center operations or add flexibility in work schedules. Using at-home agents is easy and can be used in all instances running TCN.

To accommodate at-home agents, each agent will need a computer, headset, and internet connection. TCN’s cloud call center platform is agile, robust, and contract-free to allow for scale and growth.

By proactively connecting with your customers, you’ll be able to alleviate much of the barrage of inbound calls that your call center is receiving—freeing up much-needed resources.

What This Means for Compliance

Several governing compliance bodies have issued temporary positions for work-at-home agents. Be sure to check with your local governing body to ensure compliance. As always, the TCN Compliance Suite works great for these types of scenarios.

  • Natural Language Compliance

Natural Language Compliance is an industry first designed to help contact centers and agencies automate compliance and minimize risk as state and federal rules and regulations continue to change.

  • Manually Approved Calling-Human Intervention

Allow a subset of agents to review and approve calls for other agents regardless of where they are.

  • Call Recording with PCI Redaction

Keep your agents compliant, even at home, with PCI Redaction Call Recording.
