Transform your customer service through our Call Center Solution that is quick to deploy and simple to use.

Enjoy the benefits of centralized management to put critical information at your fingertips to make vital decisions about queuing, overflow treatment and call routing.

In order to receive the call center option a supervisor or agent license must be purchased along with either a standard or premium license for each supervisor or agent.

Standard Call Center:

A Standard call center license add-on is designed to support a normal call center environment where flexible routing options are needed and the agent’s workflow dictates the need for ACD states such as Available, Unavailable, and Wrap-up. In addition, Standard call centers are designed to support deployments that require clients such as the BroadWorks Agent client and Reporting. Any user with a Standard call center license can be assigned to a Standard call center.

Premium Call Center:

A Premium call center add-on license is designed to provide the most advanced set of routing and call management options to support a formal call center environment. It supports such capabilities as the assignment of multiple dialed number identification service (DNIS) numbers to a single call center, the use of agent skill levels for directing calls to more skilled agents, the addition of “unavailable” codes for when agents are not able to take calls, and the use of disposition codes to associate with ACD calls, outbound calling, and silent monitoring of agents. Only users with a Premium call center license can be assigned to a Premium call center seat.
