Call Center Software
Cloud call center software enables businesses of all sizes to offer customer support for their products and services at a fraction of the up-front cost of deploying an on-premise phone system. With only an internet connection and a computer, the hosted service provides inbound call and outbound call capabilities. Multichannel and omnichannel features can be added, creating a cloud contact center with text, chat, and social media support to supplement the traditional call center functions. Given the advantages of real-time, on-demand support for customer communications, a cloud-based contact center is deployed for a diverse mix of client and business needs.

It is the life blood of your customer relationships. 8x8 empowers every call center agent with a suite of secure, reliable, and powerful contact center software features designed to put you in control.
Enhance Customer Experience
Imagine serving customers without ever putting them on hold. With 8x8 Virtual Contact Center and ContactNow, customers can request to talk to an agent using interactive voice response (IVR) or web callback. Call center managers decide which agent is best qualified to assist and agents then initiate a call or chat session having reviewed customer call histories.
Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
IVR is a critical component of any contact center. With IVR, customers get quick answers to simple questions, and companies identify the right agent to handle incoming calls. 8x8 provides two IVR solutions: Basic IVR: Easy-to-create menus, and simple self-service capabilities that allow the contact center manager the agility to keep up with changing requirements through simple edits to the IVR flow. eIVR: A powerful, full-function IVR that can access data from multiple sources and support speech-driven applications.
Skills Based Routing
Turn call routing into skills based routing, allocating expertise and resources efficiently. 8x8 provides sophisticated logic for matching customers to the agent who can best solve their problems and a user interface that makes it easy to take advantage of this important capability. With 8x8’s custom dashboard you can assign agent expertise, identify priority customers, and even sort by channel of choice to align customer preferences with agent capacity.
Integrated Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
8x8 Virtual Contact Center employs CRM information to personalize customer interactions and significantly increase the efficiency of every call center interaction. Utilize 8x8’s native CRM or benefit from comprehensive cross-functionality from inside Zendesk, Salesforce, Netsuite, Microsoft Dynamics and more. Maximize existing investments and receive automatic call logging and single click outbound dialing directly from your CRM with 8x8 integrations.
Assured Quality Management
Workforce management, training, and turnover can slow even the best run call centers. 8x8 helps you retain your knowledge base, scale your workforce as needed, and focus on your primary objectives – sales and customer satisfaction. Our proprietary FAQ Knowledge Base, Personal Agent Connect, and Customer Experience tools enhance existing call recording, auto dialer, predictive dialer, and call monitoring features. With less training time and data-driven results, 8x8 transforms agent productivity.
FAQ Knowledge Base
The 8x8 Virtual Contact Center is equipped to protect your most important information. Your FAQ Knowledge Base lets you easily search content with simple keyword queries, import answers easily from Word, Excel or PDF files, and even embed hyperlinks to provide customers with comprehensive answers to even the most complex questions. Supervisors share the same user interface as agents, supporting ongoing training and providing consistency across channels. All agents use the same tool to provide researched, consistent responses arranged by managers and updated across all consoles instantaneously.
Personal Agent Connect
8x8 Personal Agent Connect helps you build direct relationships with customers by swiftly and personally addressing customer issues. This feature enables your 8x8 Virtual Contact Center to route customers to an agent directly via a unique agent phone number or through the “last agent called” feature, routing customers to the agent who created a ticket.
Using your Customer Experience analytical tool you can map the complete caller journey and search all call center customer interactions for targeted analysis. Customer Experience reveals the most common IVR paths utilized by customers and offers a dynamic view of IVR scripts highlighting caller abandon rates at different points in the IVR. This actionable intelligence lets you further optimize IVR design, reducing call queues and iterating on your design. With 8x8, workforce optimization is not just a goal, it is a feature.
