We provide different level of training to onboard from the project team to the end users. Our dedicated training centre can provide several approaches like train the trainers approach or global trainings approach.

End-of-contract data extraction Standard extractions are available within the solution such as:
Recordings (sound files + metadata),
Caller histories,
Reporting data.

For specific requests of non-standard data to be extracted, arrangements can be agreed at the start of each contract, and the execution of such arrangements can be completed as part of the contract close-down procedures.
End-of-contract process At the end of the contract, and if the buyer chooses to use another solution, we work with the buyer to define the smoothest way to switch to the next solution (progressive rollout, data migration, etc.)
According to what is agreed, this may lead to uncover extra-costs from the original contract

Service interface Yes
Description of service interface Worldline Contact solution is divided into multiple applications (Agent, Monitoring, Administration, etc.). May a user have access to more than one application, the welcome page will be divided into tiles allowing the user to open the application related to the task he has to perform.

User having access to only one application (Agents for example), this application will be directly accessed once the user is connected to Contact.

Rights are assigned to users through a Role Based Access Control system. End users view applications and data within the Worldline Contact Web Portal depending on their roles and rights.
Accessibility standards None or don’t know
Description of accessibility Worldline maintains privileged relations with the Braillenet association and consolidates its knowledge acquired through several years of experience, with the AccessiWeb expert training provided by the association. This experience has been put to use by many players in the public sector and in e-commerce, both in France and in other European countries.
Verification of the accessibility of the agent desktop is an integral part of the software reception phase, involving a "Studio" internal auditor and speakers from the Hansemble association, the Atos Group's disability mission.
Our service interface meets WCAG 2.0 AA standard.
Accessibility testing WL Contact is audited against the French regulation for assistive technology which is based on WCAG 2.0 level AA, which is the basis of EN 301549. We have worked with our customers to test specific technologies in line with their internal standards, for example, we worked with La Bank Postale (LBP) for testing with JAWS (a program that allows blind and visually impaired users to read screens either with a speech-to-text output via Braille display).
What users can and can't do using the API WL Contact is an open solution with open APIs, which are fully documented in the user guide. Examples could include triggering calls, triggering outbound calls (Web call-back), retrieving data/statistics.
API documentation Yes
API documentation formats PDF
API sandbox or test environment Yes
Customisation available Yes
Description of customisation Users can customise the configuration (users, teams, groups, skills, …), create or modify IVR Call flows or advanced routing mechanisms, administrate wallboards or reports.

Customisation is accessible via various interfaces depending on what is customised. Customisation capacity for a user can be managed through Rights Management.


Independence of resources Our service is based on a SaaS approach that allows architecture scaling as load increases. Each Buyer organisation has a dedicated, logical and/or physical instance to handle data segmentation between Buyers.


Service usage metrics Yes
Metrics types The main information is as follows:
- number of agents per status;
- number of incoming/outgoing contacts per status;
- waiting time before call is picked up, before caller gives up;
- call time, transfer time, post-processing time and processing time;
- call-routing time, time to pick-up;
- in-queue transfers received, putting back in the queue;
- estimated waiting time and errors.

This list is not exhaustive and represents what is available through wallboards. Complimentary metrics are available in the supervision interface and in the reporting tool. In our reporting tools, combination and calculation are also available between indicators.

Protective monitoring approach Controls based on ITIL V3.
Incident management type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402

Users report incidents to their local security officer. The local security officer is responsible for running the service.

Worldline can provide detailed incident reports upon request. When a customer is impacted, he’s notified and updated.
