What can be done to adapt modern call center technology to the needs of smaller operations or scale it to suit that of growing businesses? Read on to find out how adaptive technology is making the difference.

The holidays are a busy time for everyone. For those who work in the field of customer service – especially in call centers and similar settings – the winter holidays and the days that directly follow them are some of the busiest and most difficult.

The Call Center Solution for the Small Micro and Nano Business

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Oct 2, 2018 7:30:00 AM

Call center software providers are often looking for large clients with very complex needs that translate into higher fees. However, the hallmark of a great call center solution is that size does not matter. Finding a solution for a five-person call-center is a lot harder than most people would have you believe. Conventional wisdom holds that small businesses are composed of companies that employ 250 people or less.

What Is Automatic Call Distribution (ACD)?

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Sep 27, 2018 7:30:00 AM

How do agents get incoming calls? Once upon a time, incoming calls were simply routed to the first available open extension. The agent answering that line had to deal with whatever was on the other end.
