Where IoT, Fog Computing, and Contact Centers Come Together

Posted by Guillaume Seynhaeve on Oct 9, 2014 9:53:00 AM

Where does the Internet of Things, fog computing, and contact centers come together?  Read the latest interview with 3CLogic's CEO, Raj Sharma, as he explains how the evolution in IoT is changing the contact center space, as printed in Fog Computing World by Carl Ford (Making Contact with the Internet of Things Community - 10/8/2014)

When it comes to the IoT Evolution, we are facing major changes in what we share and in what is known about us.  The result is that the contact center can have access to resources and information that helps expand quality of service. I had the opportunity to interview Raj Sharma the CEO of 3CLogic who explained to me what we should see as the impact of IoT in terms of service.  What I find the most fascinating in the discussion is the focus on Fog Computing and the impact of cloud service models within the Enterprise.

Jay's Corner: New Year's Resolutions and contact center software solutions

Posted by David Rastatter on Dec 31, 2013 9:10:00 AM

It’s almost the New Year, so people are ready to start their yearly New Year’s Resolutions. These resolutions are usually an attempt to break a bad habit or reinvent oneself. But, what if it’s not you who needs to make a change this year? What if it’s your contact center software that needs a New Year’s Resolution? How will you know? I’m here to give you the tell-tale signs.

First of all, if your contact center software doesn’t integrate with your CRM software, such as Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, Zoho, LeadMaster, CATSOne, or Infusionsoft, you might want to start looking for something new. A contact center solution with an integrated CRM can relieve many headaches and is less time-consuming than switching back and forth between windows. Good news: 3CLogic is a cloud-based contact center solution that is able to integrate with ANY CRM system you choose, even homegrown CRMs.

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….

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.
