The fact that corporate call centers modernize their business processes and platforms to support omnichannel customer experiences in order to achieve better company results is the main element that makes them stand out among their counterparts.
Organizations looking for ways to modernize their corporate call centers with no fuss and low costs should take these five important steps:
Towards the end of the life cycle of the Automatic Call Distributor (ACD) system, the equipment storage starts to become more and more costly and risky. The mandatory updates and the probability of interruption made the replacement of this technology a fundamental step towards serving today’s customers.
Making innovations in customer experience while gaining advantage from advanced corporate company processes is the ideal approach for communication center modernization. This approach ensures a permanent infrastructure to achieve optimum customer experiences with the lowest operational cost. Removing organization silos and getting rid of the limitations emerging due to the old technology help you provide a consistent customer experience at all communication points and customer experience channels. In addition, this helps you maintain your competitive advantage in all of your markets.
The future of TDM (Time-Division Multiplexing) systems is unclear as they are hardware-based systems that include high operational costs and are difficult to implement. PBX infrastructure, which could not keep up with the technology, limits the functionality of ACD and offers limited expandability features. The fact that PBXs have shortcomings when it comes to interoperability and upgradability directed organizations to pursue more flexible and dynamic solutions. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is an open standard that will speed up your switch to an IP-based communication center. The power and flexibility offered by SIP-featured ACD change provide the organizations with the opportunity to reach the freedom to adapt fast architectural and management models to their companies and carry out new applications and services. IP software keys, ACD as the software application layer, and the SIP application are the triggering components of this evolution.
