Unified omnichannel contact center solutions

Over the years, the deployment of multiple, omnichannel contact center point solutions has reduced agent efficiency and made the role of management more complex and expensive. The Cisco© Customer Journey Platform addresses this with a unified omnichannel contact center environment that includes a speech-enabled IVR, ACD, WFO, outbound campaigns and voice, email, and chat channels for customer interaction and engagement.

And the winner is your customer—because their customer and interaction data no longer gets spread across multiple systems. Instead it is all together and easily accessible to agents across channels for a seamless customer experience.

And the agents have a consistent user experience which increases their efficiency, productivity and performance.

Unified contact center solution


ACD with Global Queue in the Cloud

Creates a global queue in the cloud for all voice calls to assure quality customer experiences worldwide. Every caller has a quality connection, is served in a timely manner and gets the same information regardless of where they are calling from, the time of day, or which call center is up and running. Everyone waits in the same line and gets connected to the best available agent to meet their need regardless of location.

CRM Integration for Call Logging and Predicting Customer Needs

Can send and receive data to and from third party applications, such as leading CRMs. Automatic call logging to CRM records enriches the data in customer history records. The platform’s use of CRM data in analytics helps determine which agent and customer behaviors and attributes deliver the desired results.

Call Recording and Monitoring for Quality

Centralizes call quality management regardless of the agent, site or outsourcing partner taking the call. Calls are stored in a hosted repository for long-term archival, replay and analysis. Customizable parameters and tags make for easy search, retrieval and file management.

WFO Suite in a Unified Environment

Workforce Management with dynamic scheduling and agent participation, intuitive Quality Management for supervisors and agents, and speech and desktop analytics for “Voice of the Customer” insights improve the productivity and effectiveness of everyone in the contact center.

Expert Collaboration and Communications

Integrated on-demand voice and text communications with other platform users makes real-time collaboration between agents, managers and subject matter experts possible to speed first contact resolution—the option to integrate unified communications extends collaboration throughout the business.

Outbound Campaigns

Outbound calling campaign automation and management with preview and progressive dialing optimize agent connections with the right customers while increasing agent productivity, efficiency and sales.

Speech-enabled IVR with Graphic Call Flow Builder

Call routing—from the IVR to connecting the customer and agent—is defined in a graphical Call Flow Builder that makes it easy to set up IVR prompts and self-service options. Fetches to a CRM or Order Entry can be inserted into call flows, to route calls based on customer attributes, past interactions and needs. Advanced self-service capabilities employ automatic speech recognition (ASR) in multiple languages, user-verification via voice biometrics, and natural language to improve user experience and adoption.

Interaction Histories for Predictive Analytics

Captures all customer interactions and agent activities across channels and integrates them into unified customer interaction and agent activity records that represent all the actions each customer took with the same intent, the related agent activities and final resolutions.  This valuable data is available for reporting and to analyze what delivers your business results and how to optimize for the results you want with predictive analytics.

Omnichannel customer interactions

Just because your customers are interacting with you through disparate channels, doesn’t mean you can’t handle, manage and track them in a unified way. The Customer Journey Platform routes voice, email, and chat interactions centrally so that voice and non-voice interactions are no longer managed in silos. Agents work in one unified environment, and all interactions are logged in the same system for reporting and analytics—for a true omnichannel contact center.

Omnichannel view of customer journey 

It’s this 360° view of the customer journey that drives the analytics-driven routing that predicts customer needs and connects them to the agent with the best performance record for meeting that need.

Unified Views of Cross-channel Interactions
On average, customers interact with a company through seven channels, as sited in well-known studies by the Aberdeen Group and Ventana Research. The Customer Journey Platform brings together the data from all your channels—and even your other contact center systems such as your WFO suite—and creates a unified view into all your omnichannel contact center operations making it available for reporting and analytics.

Find relationships you never knew existed between customer interactions and agent activities in the ACD, IVR, Chat, Email, CRM, WFO and other systems.

With integrated WFO analytics, the results will be much more than the sum of their parts.

Contact Center Model for Business Users

Understands the data fields and formats coming from the various systems the call center uses—ACD, IVR, CRM, Marketing, Order Entry, Consumer Demographics—and applies heuristics to normalize the data across systems and vendors. It then presents it in a business-user-friendly view for analysis.

Agent Activity Records

Provides objective, undisputable statistical insight into the actions and behaviors of agents, teams, sites and outsourcers across channels. For once you can get an integrated view of all your operations.

Customer Interaction Records

Connects the data in different systems representing the actions taken by a customer with the same intent, providing a complete view of what a customer does to evaluate, purchase, or obtain service for your products.

Voice of Customer Analytics

WFO suite performs text and desktop analytics to determine what was really said and done during every customer interaction, which is fed into the Customer Journey Analyzer to determine what customer and agent behaviors drive the business results you want.
