A Trustworthy Path to the Cloud for Large Contact Centers  

In 2020, it almost goes without saying that cloud technology plays a large role in delivering the innovation, feature speed and agility that today’s contact centers need to deliver exceptional customer experiences.  

The new bar is set by agents who have lifetime customer journey information at their fingertips, insights and capabilities delivered by the latest artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies and the collaboration resources to break down communication siloes in their business to utilize a full team of experts to deliver on customer needs. 

However, our customers and prospects have told us that barriers such as scalability, limited feature sets, security concerns, and perhaps most importantly, the pain of adoption from existing on-premises solutions have kept them from migrating their large contact centers to the cloud-delivered technologies that enable this next level of customer experience.
