Is Your Contact Center Truly Redundant?

Posted by Guillaume Seynhaeve on Mar 24, 2014 1:30:00 AM

Over the weekend, the weather finally changed, with temperatures in the high 60’s on Saturday.  It’s not something I generally get excited about, but after this year’s brutal winter I took advantage of the break from the cold to go on a long run with friends.  It was on this run that someone asked me, “How is it that my home phone never goes down but that a number for one of Ashburn’s biggest data centers can, and recently did, with only a busy tone for those trying to get through?” 

Knowing what I do for a living, he went on to explain that one of the employees at the data center had been fired and chosen to turn off the switches before walking out, which brought the whole center to a standstill.  In fact, not only was he able to bring down all of the managed hosted services, but the VOIP-based PBX system was also shutoff, which prevented the entire support staff from making or receiving calls.   To make matters worse, every client who tried to call customer support heard nothing but a busy tone.  Doesn’t help when one of those clients is the state government.

Jay's Corner: What does V-TAG Mean to Your Contact Center?

Posted by David Rastatter on Dec 20, 2013 9:20:00 AM

What is V-TAG?

The innovative, patent-pending, Virtual Telephony Application Grid (V-TAG) has set 3CLogic apart from other cloud-based contact center solutions. Without V-TAG, 3CLogic can’t guarantee 99.999% uptime. Without V-TAG, your reps will hear that “click” of the phone hanging up
more often, because of that pesky dialer delay. Without V-TAG, if that precious centralized server malfunctions for even a few minutes, say goodbye to those sales you were working so hard to make. Without V-TAG, keep trying to understand what the person on the other end of the phone is saying, with all that static. Just lie and say you are on the road, going through a tunnel, or maybe you can blame it on some bad weather. It’s not like your business relies on
these things to be successful….

The Rising Need for Security

Posted by Rachel Brink on Oct 7, 2013 10:00:00 AM

As technology has developed and become more advanced, security issues have become more prevalent year after year. Communities of hackers have generated to uncover issues with software that even the creators are not aware of. This is something that not only makes the customers uneasy, but also the companies involved in these security breaches. Often times, companies hear of these issues after much damage has been done; it is too late to fix what has occurred. A secure network/database is vital to the success of a business. It gives not only the business peace of mind, but also the customers in knowing that their information is secure.

If you’re not accessible to your customers at all times, especially in the case of a 24/7 contact center, you lose out on business. It's also frustrating to customers that want to get in contact with you and can’t because of maintenance outages for service upgrades, or server failure. If you want to run a successful contact center, you need a software solution with 100% uptime.
