Top ten advantages of integrating your cloud-based contact center with UCaaS

Various Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) platforms have emerged in response to the surging communication needs of enterprise-level companies. UCaaS tools are oriented toward internal collaborations, whereas CCaaS solutions focus on external customer communications and internal contact centers. Cloud technology drives development in both toolsets. Cloud-based contact centers are more flexible and adaptable to meet customers across multiple channels, and UCaaS solutions supercharge internal collaboration and productivity.

A new trend in communications is integrating UCaaS and CCaaS tools into a single dashboard. However, it is not sufficient to rely only on integration. Applying APIs thoughtlessly leads to static and frustrating workflows. To ensure optimal results, enterprises need to seek out an integrator—an IT provider that can merge applications and Software as a Service (SaaS) tools in customized and meaningful ways.

This post will provide an overview of the best-in-breed UCaaS and CCaaS tools from OnX and explore the many advantages of integration.

The numerous benefits of integrating CCaaS with UCaaS

There are many advantages to merging UCaaS and CCaaS workflows, especially with the support of an experienced partner like OnX.

  1. Simplicity. Combining CCaaS and UCaaS diminishes time lost switching between tabs, windows, or applications.
  2. Omnichannel support. Agents meet customers at the channel of their preference—web chat, text message, instant message, video call, phone, or e-mail.
  3. Greater control. Cloud contact center employees can follow customer communication through its entire lifecycle from query to resolution to follow-up.
  4. Data visibility. Agents can see a comprehensive history of each customer, allowing the agent to focus on assisting the customer instead of inflicting repetitious questions on the caller.
  5. Improved collaboration. Collaborate internally to connect your customers to an expert who can solve their issues quickly and efficiently.
  6. Savings. Move communications expenses from CapEx to OpEx and stabilize IT spending.
  7. Enhanced UX. Agents can provide a better overall experience by accessing the tools they need to solve customer problems. Additionally, automated scheduling and reminder tools help agents to offer follow-up support.
  8. Prioritize innovation. Freeing an IT team from maintaining legacy infrastructure, they can optimize and innovate solutions related to the company’s core mission.
  9. Integrate with third-party apps and calling features. Further integrations become easier when a communications system is integrated into a single cloud-based contact center. SaaS tools like CRM, project management tools, and other apps can be built into the communications dashboard to minimize complexity. Additionally, calling tools such as IVR menus, voicemail, and auto attendants are integrated seamlessly into the overall system. And cutting-edge cloud developments like conversational AI and machine learning will continue to empower communications for companies well into the future.
