‘…as a Service’ Part 4: CCaaS

CCaaSWhat is “…as a Service” and how can it help your business?

Finally, we have reached the end! Our last “…as a Service” acronym in our What is “…as a Service” and how can it help your business?’ blog series is CCaaS. If you are just joining this 4 part blog series, visit our blog to catch up on Part 1-Part 3. Now, without further ado let us introduce CCaaS, also known as Contact Center as a Service.

CCaaS is a simplified, cloud-based service that improves customer service for contact centers. One would think a call center and a contact center are the same things, but a call center only focuses on incoming and outgoing voice calls. A contact center does that as well but also uses data applications like e-mail, chat/instant messaging, CRM integration etc.

CCaaS is the ideal option for many contact centers! Why?

  • They can be scalable when needed
  • Companies can be more flexible
  • Companies will only pay for the technology they need which
    • Reduces Expenses
    • Reduces IT monitoring Staff
    • Creates Flexibility
    • Allows Easier Innovation

Cloud solutions such as ‘as a service’ provide the same abilities as on-premises does, but they are delivered from a single vendor who is responsible for maintenance and upgrades. The vendor can release these upgrades and do maintenance all through the cloud.   

CCaaS ensures not only a better customer experience but also a better agent experience!

  • Additional programs seamlessly integrate
  • Agents save time on solving problems
  • Agents have the ability to collaborate with other team members like never before
  • The overall cost savings for the company are tremendous.
  • Agents can solve problems quickly resulting in a lower talk time and more customers served.

CCaaS guarantees flexibility, better responsiveness and service quality. This software is useful to even customers that are not call/contact centers. Customers are realizing that they need the contact center features to enhance their customer service. CCaaS features are appealing to:

  • A small business with order taking
  • Any company with customer service agents
  • Growing companies who are seeking integration
  • Startups that want the best communication platforms
