Unified Communication & Contact Centre: 360° efficiency| February 2, 2024
Keeping up with new communication technologies is challenging. Companies face difficulties surviving in an ever-evolving market. Balancing internal and customer communication is crucial. Neglecting one for the other is risky. Despite vast knowledge, a single error can jeopardize the entire business. So, which tools should be adopted? What technologies can help implement effective communication? In recent years, two concepts gained traction globally: Unified Communication and Contact Center. Both streamline communication processes, but with contrasting goals and motivations.
Follow BeCloud in discovering features, functionalities, and benefits of both communication systems. Uncover their unique roles in contemporary business.
Enterprise services always at your disposal
A business and Marketing concept describing the integration between enterprise communication services.
Also known as UC, and born in the ’90s. It aims at improving internal corporate communication, overcoming geographical limitations. It provides access to various communication channels and features. Voice, real-time messaging, video calls, voicemail, and content sharing are just a few. All accessible through a single interface.
Thanks to UC, each business communication is linked to the other one. The working environment, as the name implies, is “Unified”. Different business departement members can participate to meetings, share opinions and take business decisions to organise their activities. And that’s not all. Calendar and file sharing, always up to date within the same Omnichannel platform is also possible. The overall workflow is fast and efficient. Business collaboration between workers and in porjects is improved. Operational costs for each instrument are reduced.
Powerfull customers communication system
the focal point of customer communication channels management
Designed hubs managing customer interactions across various communication channels. Opposed to UC, Contact Centers focus on external communication. Their raison d’être are customers themselves, making it the frontline of every business. The model aims at improving customer service and support. Leveraging technologies and processes, Contact Centers enable businesses to handle customer interactions on different channels tailored to customers needs.
Centricity is fundamental. A stark difference from the traditional Call Center approach (Care to take a look?). Its effectiveness, however, is significantly higher. Businesses, thorugh complete control over communication channels, reach customers on their preferred platform. It will result in a substantial impact on customer loyalty for companies embracing this cross-channel connection model.
