In other CaaS news this week, Connect First, a call center solution firm, has launched a new Certified Cloud Routing Destination program. The program will certify contact centers that use and also are trained on the Connect First ACD, TMCnet reported.
Clients can reportedly leverage a contact center that has passed the Certified Cloud Routing Destination program to realize several benefits including lower cost, more efficient routing and better reporting.
Connect First unified queue in the cloud where calls can be routed to multiple distributed contact centers or assigned to secondary queues such as IVR, or specialized ACD skill groups. Its cloud routing is 100 percent on demand, and is offered as a SaaS solution. The company also claimed that no other platform, service or premises-based equipment can match the level of business continuity offered by ConnectFirst’s Cloud Routing platform.
