Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise uses an IP infrastructure to deliver skills-based contact routing, voice self-service, computer telephony integration (CTI), and multichannel contact management. By combining multichannel automatic-call-distributor (ACD) functions with IP telephony in a unified solution, Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise can help your company rapidly deploy a distributed Voice-over-IP (VoIP) contact center infrastructure.
Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise segments customers, monitors resource availability, and delivers each contact to the most appropriate resource in the enterprise. The software profiles each customer contact using related data such as dialed number and calling line ID, caller-entered digits, data submitted on a web form, and information obtained from a customer database lookup. Simultaneously, the system monitors the resources available in the contact center to meet customer needs, including agent skills and availability, Interactive-Voice-Response (IVR) status, and queue lengths.
This combination of customer and contact center data is processed through user-defined routing scripts that graphically reflect your company's business rules, enabling Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise to route each contact to the right place. Wherever an agent is based, the system delivers a rich set of call-event and customer-provided data to the targeted desktop as a contact arrives, personalizing service and increasing efficiency. Throughout the process, distributed fault tolerance helps ensure uninterrupted operation.
The routing functions of Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise provide the intelligent distribution of contacts as they enter the company's network. When a contact requires redirection, Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise applies business logic, sending the contact to the best available enterprise resource. For contacts flowing between sites or among agents, skill groups, or IVRs, the routing optimizes each customer's interaction by retaining collected data, eliminating the need for the customer to restate information.
Customer profile routingProduct Highlights
Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise extends the sources of data available for making contact routing decisions and for populating agent desktop applications.
