Be up and running with an operational contact centre in hours, not months

If you’ve encountered technical challenges in converting your existing technology to work from home, cloud may be the best or only solution. Using cloud technology to enable your existing solution allows your team to be fully operational in the shortest possible time. You can also bring all of your business-critical data together as many of your apps will already be in the cloud. And as your business needs change and grow, you can simply adjust without the need for hardware planning or IT overhead. You can add agents or features quickly to adapt to your organisation’s requirements, reacting at a moment’s notice. Agents and supervisors quickly get up-to-speed and work productively with the browser-based TouchPoint user interface.

Enghouse Cloud Contact Centre supports key local and international data security requirements. The solution allows you to focus on core business, eliminate capital expenditure and reduce IT costs.
