Frequently Asked Questions

A cloud-based contact center works as a centralized hub that operates over the internet and allows your virtual or remote call center agents to handle all the inbound and out customer interactions across various channels such as call, email, Facebook, WhatsApp, Google’s Business Messages, chat, to name a few.


Some of the reasons why cloud contact centers are preferred over a traditional on-premise setup are:

  • Cost-Benefit: Pay for only what you use. A subscription-based payment method along with minimum infrastructure costs is a big plus
  • Maintenance: With no heavy servers to look after, enterprises can shift the maintenance responsibility to their cloud vendor for managed services
  • Location Benefit: No restriction to set up your contact center at a specific location – no geographical barriers
  • No Workforce Restriction: Widen your resource pool to hire the best talent for your contact center – without worrying about travel cost and other expenditure
  • Flexibility and Scalability: Cloud contact center provides enterprises the freedom to expand or contract their business without worrying about huge infrastructure investments

Cloud contact centre can help you drive profit in the following ways:

  • Higher ROI
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Boost agent satisfaction
  • Better disaster management – higher up-time

A cloud contact center solution helps you improve your customer experience by:

  • Reducing Customer Wait Time
    An intelligent IVR software combined with an automatic call distributor (ACD) routes all your inbound queries to the most suitable agent/department to ensure a faster resolution.
  • Driving Contextual Conversations
    A unified desktop with all the customer information along with CRM and CTI integration allows the agents to know the customer, their behavior pattern, and purchase history to have more qualified and fruitful customer interactions.
  • Keeping Customers Updated
    Sending regular updates to the customers about their complaints or order via email, SMS, WhatsApp, etc to keep them in the loop reduces customer anxiety and increases customer satisfaction.
  • Providing Self-service Options
    Let the customers help themselves instead of waiting for an agent. Use advanced self-service IVR, artificially intelligent bots, knowledge base, etc to empower your agents and reduce TAT.

An omnichannel cloud contact center allows you to not just handle queries that are raised on social media but also other engagement platforms such as WhatsApp, live chat, Google’s business messages, email, etc.
