Cloud Contact Center also uses a combination of AI, workflow automation, virtual agents, intelligent call routing, integrations, reporting, and employee collaboration tools to help businesses reduce costs and improve the customer experience, all without the need to add additional resources.

Cloud Contact Center delivers superior, responsive customer care from any location. Top features and benefits include:

  • A true omnichannel experience that allows businesses and customers to interact via voice, webchat, email, WhatsApp, and SMS
  • Excellent service quality with real-time performance dashboards and advanced historical reporting
  • Support for multiple locations and remote frontline users – which is typically deployable in days, not weeks
  • Intelligent routing and advanced queue handling based on agent skill sets, customer priority, statuses, and more
  • AI-powered Interaction Insights including AI Transcriptions, AI Sentiment Analysis, AI Interaction Summary, and AI Evaluator which allow support representatives to be more productive and make more informed decisions
