Unified Communications. Contact Center Solutions. Delivered in tandem from the cloud “as a Service”… will enable your company to use both capabilities across your organization as required, with the maximum amount of operational flexibility and security possible.

Why?

Because your organization needs to. And now, because you can.

A recent Metrigy* research study found that 62.8% of the organizations it deemed to be more successful than their industry peers (which are 27% more successful than typical organizations), had integrated UC with their CC solution to deliver better customer experiences (CX). Through UC/CC integration, they improved overall communication and collaboration across the organization, from frontline agents to back-office and support teams, and to engineers and decision-makers.

Locally or globally, location is no longer a limitation. By being able to see who is available, using their presence status, and identifying their specific knowledge or expertise, helps reduce the time it takes to resolve a customer issue.

Interestingly, Metrigy also noted that mid-market companies (550-2,500 employees) lead in UC/CC integration at 72.4% which is significantly more than Enterprise companies with 10,000+ employees at only 50%.

Metrigy** also found that 61.9% of organizations that have deployed a single-source solution for both Unified Communications and their Contact Center, drove revenue increases of 52.8% and improved their overall Customer Experience ratings by 20%, while also improving agent efficiency by 31.3% due to their use of a single-source solution.

For these organizations, their overall revenue growth was attributed to increased customer engagement, higher levels of satisfaction, and more extensive conversations with appropriate subject matter experts (SMEs) resulting in more upsell and cross-sell opportunities. Additional benefits were achieved through more extensive internal contact center collaboration, enabling supervisors to collaborate using chat and team collaboration workspaces while also simplifying the management of their agent teams.
