Enhancements in Previous Versions:
Web Chat, Video Chat & Page Sharing:
Web chat is quickly becoming the channel of choice for customers. Give your website visitors an escalation point to your customer service center that can be easily and seamlessly escalated to video as required. Page sharing provides the tool to support these customers in their engagement, allowing agents to guide them across different pages and even assist them to fill out forms.
Users who loved Communications Center’s old Desktop UI will be happy to see this complete and focused new TouchPoint view into agent productivity and overall contact center performance, all from one screen.
Customers can now interface to the external Chat system, including chatbots and social media applications, using the public Chat Connector. Chat Connector places the externally initiated chats into Communications Center’s Chat queues and then delivers them to chat-enabled agents. The same chat queue can take chats from the standard Communications Center Web Chat, internal chats, and chats from the Connector.”
