With agents working from home or a remote office, on-premise call centers are no longer sufficient. In our previous blog post we have talked about the first few reasons why virtual contact centers are the cornerstone of successful customer engagement. In this blog post we will give you 10 more benefits of cloud contact center software. But first, let’s quickly summarize our previous conclusions.
Work from Anywhere
Cloud contact center software is location-agnostic. People from all around the world can work from the same system and cover your most essential time zones. Location-independent platforms also result in higher productivity and happier agent, leading to more loyal customers.
Easy to Scale
Also, cloud contact centers are less expensive and easier to scale, because it’s no longer about the hardware. OPEX pricing allows you to control costs, even based on seasonality, without creating negative effects on your staff or customers.
Now, let’s move on to our next two reasons to move to the cloud!
Cloud Contact Center Software Provides the Best Data Security
Data security, without a doubt, is one of the of the most crucial concerns when working with contact center solutions and databases. Business-destroying scenarios can occur when this is not managed sufficiently. And the likelihood of such devastating events are increasing daily, as hackers and cybercriminals keep upgrading their sophisticated methods.
Cloud contact center software is the better way to keep sensitive customer information safe. It dematerializes your data and delocalizes data storage. It’s become significantly easier to make backups of data and keep systems regularly updated with new security features. Simply because you switch focus from hardware to software.
We believe that it’s a huge responsibility of the software provider too, to keep reviewing and upgrading security protocols. To that end Anywhere365® is ISO27001 certified and our security department is here to ensure consistency, compliancy and maximum security of the Anywhere365® cloud contact center.
Improved Customer Engagement
Your investment in cloud contact center software will increase the profitability of your business. Research shows that more than half of the consumers are willing to pay more if they get a better customer experience in return. And, on the other side, 86% will switch to your competitor for a poor experience. So, how do cloud contact center platforms help you in this? Let’s take our own Anywhere365® Dialogue Cloud as an example.
