Contact Center Solutions for Microsoft Skype for Business and Teams

Unlike traditional PBX-based contact center applications, the advanced presence capabilities of the Microsoft Skype for Business platform make it a natural choice for a contact center application. Real-time presence and availability of contact center agents is the cornerstone to the efficient routing and handling of customer interactions. Skype for Business extends enterprise presence from the contact center agent to the internal subject matter experts, departments, and even federated external contacts these agents rely on to deal with customer requests. At a glance, agents can use their Skype client to see who is available to assist in real-time and ensure customers are dealt with efficiently the first time they call.

For the informal contact center, Skype/Lync has the integral Response Groups functionality which can route voice calls based on serial, longest-idle, parallel, round robin, and Attendant routing methods. Response Groups are widely used for simple voice call center applications where managers do not require advanced reporting and analytics.
