Call Center Software Integrations with Third-party Applications
Changing to a new call center software doesn’t mean you have to start over from scratch. In fact, many current solutions can work with your existing customer service tech tool-belt. When you find the right integrations, it lets you maximize investments without the constant need for any IT support.
Some Integration Essentials
A powerful call center software would incorporate some of the following into one:
- Integrate workforce management (WFM) systems. Workforce management is an integrated set of processes that a company uses to optimize the productivity of its employees. WFM involves effectively forecasting labor requirements and creating and managing staff schedules to accomplish a particular task on a day-to-day and hour-to-hour basis
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software. Customer relationship management software is a category of software that covers a broad set of applications designed to help businesses manage many business processes like customer data, customer interaction, access business information, automate sales, and others.
- Private Branch Exchange (PBX). A private branch exchange is a telephone system within an enterprise that switches calls between enterprise users on local lines at the same time as allowing all users to share a certain number of external phone lines.
- Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) and other legacy systems. Automatic Call Distribution is a telephony device or capability that answers and distributes incoming calls to a specific group of terminals or agents within an organization.
A unified, all-encompassing call center software solution is faster and offers a far better value.
