The National Gasket and O-Ring museum in Bucksnort, TN has had such an increase in attendance that they have decided to require visitors to reserve time to visit the museum.  They have created two call center teams, one focused on scheduling appointments of visitors that call in and one that is dedicated to answering calls from philanthropist gasket owners that would like to donate pieces to the museum.  The museum staff need to implement 2Ring GADGETS for Cisco Finesse and 2Ring DASHBOARDS & WALLBOARDS in order to increase the effectiveness of each of these teams and allow a greater level of collaboration and accountability.  They have hired you to configure their 2Ring environment so they can bring the magic of gaskets to the rest of the world.
