The cloud continues to make a major impact on businesses, providing them new ways to communicate, store data and share information. Contact centers, in particular, stand to benefit greatly from moving their operations to the cloud.
The list of advantages afforded by the cloud is quite lengthy, so we’ve taken the liberty of identifying three of the most impactful ways it can help you transform your contact center:
- Cut CAPEX and OPEX
A hosted contact center requires minimal upfront investment in hardware because most of the equipment necessary to run the facility is managed offsite at a secure location by the cloud provider. Having hardware off-premises also removes the cost burden of maintaining, repairing and replacing equipment from your organization, cutting long-term costs as well.
- Reduce Downtime
With an on-premise solution, any equipment malfunction could take your entire contact center capability down. When your contact center is hosted offsite—usually in redundant data centers—it is supported 24/7/365 by the provider, meaning issues are resolved proactively and one minor malfunction won’t knock your system completely offline.
- Integrate Easily
In contact centers, adopting a solution that can integrate with an existing CRM is critical. These customer service hubs can’t afford to spend time manually migrating data or, worse yet, trying to build entirely new customer information databases from scratch. Cloud solutions are generally far simpler to introduce into a new environment and more likely to mesh well with existing systems than on-premise products.
