Leverage Your VoIP System…in the cloud!

Posted by Philip Haskings on Fri, Oct 24, 2014

Old technology, such as PSTN (public switched telephone network), connected to your premise system and carried analog voice data over dedicated circuits. This severely limited the reach and accessibility of your business and your employees since connecting to a hard line was a requirement.  In other words, your contact center and all of its employees had to be located in one place.

Posted by Aaron Renfroe on Fri, Oct 3, 2014

Application Uptime is more than a buzz phrase; it can represent the vital difference between success and failure, between a satisfied and unsatisfied customer, and between compliance and non-compliance. In a complex, interconnected system, the effects of downtime have a cascading effect. One service failing in a single system can negatively impact systems throughout the ecosystem. In a call recording environment, a single obscure error could indicate systemic issues that lead to loss of calls, productivity, revenue, levied penalties in regulated environments, and more.

It is true, however, that for years companies have shipped call center jobs to countries like India and the Philippines in order to save on operating costs.  The truth is that moving call centers offshore won’t save you any more money than you would be spending in the United States.
