What is an agile contact center?
An agile contact center refers to a customer service organization capable of quickly responding to changing needs. In practice, flexible customer service solutions are needed to answer to evolving situations and to modify the parameters of the contact center operations.
These include customer service in various channels such as calls, email, SMS, live chat, chatbots, and social media. It also has advanced finetuning of the customer service system, enabling team leaders to customise their reports, contacts, routing, etc. Flexibility and customisability are vital in creating a high-performing contact center that can provide superior customer service.
Contact Center as a Service for agile contact centers
Organisations are increasingly turning to cloud-based solutions to increase their agility. An omnichannel solution offers contact centers the flexibility and scalability to provide pleasing customer service.
A good cloud-based Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) solution will have the ability to introduce new communication channels, modify queue parameters, and set up support functions. Flexibility also means scalability and service elasticity – the organisation can, for example, onboard new agents quickly.
In practice, an agile customer service team creates and modifies various pieces of the customer service environment to create a complete and working puzzle for multiple types of customer needs.

The dashboards are also easily tailored with a comprehensive set of pre-defined widgets and real-time statistics. The system allows agents to create shortcuts, besides the helpful pre-defined short keys.
The system is suitable to businesses of all sizes. Licenses can be activated and de-activated as needed, so you can adjust to changing situations fast.
