The New Face of Contact Center Is Intelligent, Easy and Instant

A new breed of contact centerBusinesses of all sizes have employees, teams and departments that engage with both internal and external customers on a regular basis. Day in and day out, a lot of time is spent answering general inquiries, handling customer support or employee help desk issues, managing sales activities, responding to HR questions, making collection calls and even recruiting new workers.

These customer communications are critical to the business, but can be difficult to handle properly, productively and profitably without the right systems in place. For small businesses and companies with teams of informal and non-traditional contact centers – such as sales, collections, marketing, human resources, recruiting and help desks – using complex contact center solutions for customer engagement can be daunting, especially when they lack internal expertise and resources.

The Times Are Changing

The cloud and the consumerization of the contact center is enabling a new approach to customer engagement that is especially empowering for teams and first-time contact center users. By offering ease of use, flexibility, instant changes and revolutionary economics, a new type of contact center solution is giving businesses and teams a new and intelligent way to maintain and manage open lines of communications with customers, partners and fellow employees.
