Comstice desktop agent is a Java-based client, supporting Cisco Finesse Agent features. It also displays real-time and daily historical data about the agent and the queues.

Agent can monitor their daily stats as well as the queue information. Supervisor can configure certain reason codes as “Break” and desktop agent will count the cumulative break duration. For example: Lunch Break, Toilet Break, Coffee Break reason code durations can be calculated for that day and break duration consumed can be shown.

Comstice Desktop Agent can also access Phone Book created in Cisco Finesse, Cisco CUCM Corporate Directory as well as other directories through Comstice PhoneBook Middleware APIs such as Microsoft Exchange Public or Personal Contacts.

Each call received will be logged and stored with its call variables, something completely new for Cisco UCCX and UCCE. The data will be stored in a local file with a maximum file size of 100MB.
