How to Migrate from an On-premise Call Center Solution to a Cloud one

Posted by 3CLogic on Aug 18, 2020 9:55:59 AM

After dealing with outdated systems that no longer meet current customer expectations and business demands, 62% of today’s customer service centers have plans to move to the cloud within the next 18 months. However, migrating to the cloud is not as simple as flipping a switch, especially if an enterprise has already invested in an on-premise telephony infrastructure. Whether an enterprise is simply in need of basic functionality or is ready to take the leap to a fully hosted cloud contact center platform, here are a few deployment options to consider:

On-Premise vs Cloud Contact Center Solutions

Posted by Guillaume Seynhaeve on Aug 8, 2014 10:10:00 AM

Today technology is at the center of any discussion regarding competitive advantage, sustainability, and growth. As it specifically relates to the contact center space, the ability to deliver and communicate with customers using the latest channels has never been more important.  And yet, despite the emphasis on offering the latest in customer communications, the vast majority of businesses are still basing their service delivery on old, inflexible, and costly premise-based solutions. Which begs the very obvious question, why? 

For one, while there is no denying that smartphones and the age of social media are quickly transforming the communication landscape, the tried and tested concept of calling-in is still not dead. In fact, 73% of customers still prefer to speak to a representative, which is far greater than those choosing to use Twitter to communicate at 22% (Forrester). And this shouldn’t come as a surprise when you consider the generational breakdown of today’s customers, from Baby Boomers (79 Million), to Generation X (52 Million), to Generation Y (75 Million), to Generation Z (Still growing); with every one listing the phone as a primary means of contact except for the last. So, yes, premise-based solutions are surviving by virtue of those generations, but the trend is quickly moving towards email, social, media, and web, so keeping to the old way of things may not be the wisest of strategies. At the very least, it will not support any long-term competitive advantage your company may otherwise have.

I am working with a mortgage broker to refinance my home. The mortgage broker uses a number of tools to communicate with his clients and seems to be pretty tech savvy. I found out that he uses Salesforce.com because he invited me to communicate with him using Chatter.

Make your cloud contact center a profit center....

Contact center administrators have a lot on their plates. They have to stay on top of all of their agents and make sure everything is running smoothly every single day. With 24/7 support being a must in this day and age, most contact center administrators are not always working in their office or even at the call center. In some cases, the contact center agents are not even working together in a single call center. With 3CLogic, not only can agents sign in from anywhere that they have internet, administrators can log into the contact center portal online from any web browser. This way, administrators can check reports, adjust projects, assign leads, and more; from their smart phone or tablet, with no app needed. They simply log into the portal from any web browser of their choosing: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.

Jay's Corner: Customer Service in Cloud Contact Centers

Don't you hate it when you call a support line and have to wait on hold? Or even worse, you finally get on the phone with someone, but they cannot answer your question so you have to be transferred to someone else. I can recall a couple times where I was on the phone (or on hold, mostly) with my bank, as well as my television provider for an extended period of time. With my bank, I was continually transferred to different people to try and diagnose the problem; and then go ahead and fix it. I understand that some things take time because of the security measures they must take, but I shouldn’t have to free up my entire day to make one phone call. My conversation with Verizon Fios was similar. We were being charged for a package we didn’t subscribe to. It shouldn’t be that difficult to fix that problem. Still, I was sent to multiple different people to resolve a fairly simple issue.
