Cloud Contact Center Shifts Frame PureCloud And CJP Debate

 

The move towards cloud-based contact center platforms is gaining momentum, and multiple acquisitions or mergers over the last two years demonstrate this. In fact, Aragon Research predicts that by 2020, 60% of cloud contact center providers will merge or be acquired.

Cloud computing virtualizes infrastructure and, when done right, integrates systems so that your IT team can focus on the needs of your business and contact center. So, moving to the cloud makes sense. You can improve the customer experience, build business continuity, create an executable disaster recovery solution, improve scalability and acquisition, and lower costs.

But which cloud contact center solution is right for your organization?

Genesys PureCloud Benefits

 

What are the benefits of PureCloud?

Omnichannel

By 2018, Dimension Data estimates customers will expect 11 channels to be available for interacting with your business. In the same report, however, they found a whopping 58.5% of businesses were unable to integrate their various communication channels. PureCloud integrates these channels, bringing an omnichannel experience to your customers. Customers are happier, and your business can grow.

Collaboration

purecloud and cjpPureCloud combines voice services and auto-attendant tools with video conferencing, screen sharing, team chat, and document management. Their user-friendly interface makes collaboration for your teams seamless. Open APIs mean integration with your current tools will be a breeze.

Analytics

Data is the root of a successful business. Measurable results that are easy to access, format, analyze, and share can convince your employees, shareholders, and customers of what you are doing right. The PureCloud dashboard provides live data, and enables you to send and receive supervisor alerts, historical reports, and various agent tools like performance tracking and scheduling.

Innovation

Microservices architecture means your cloud solution is always up-to-date with the latest features. In 2017 alone, PureCloud added intraday monitoring, chrome extensions, salesforce extensions, single sign-on, multilingual IVR, inbound email flows, screen share, co-browsing, and PCI! Just imagine what 2018 will bring.
