Why You Need VoIP Integration to Empower Your Business and How?4.4 min read
If you’re adopting an IP-based telephony system, you must have experienced the simplicity and flexibility that a VoIP phone system offers compared with some outdated landline services, and you probably think that’s the best you could get from a telephony system. But actually, the best is yet to come. As Unified Communications and cloud-based services surging in recent years, VoIP alone could no longer fully meet the current business needs. Take your business, for example, you need a CRM platform to manage your clients’ information, a telephony system to deliver and receive phone calls, a team collaboration tool to boost work efficiency between your co-workers. Without VoIP integration, you need to manage these platforms respectively, and managing them would increase your workload a lot. So the sad thing is most of the businesses are busy dealing with one system and another, trying not to mess things up before they could really benefit from them.
But with VoIP integration, things would be totally different. Your telephony system would be connected seamlessly to other business-enhancing platforms, making things much easier for you and your team when dealing with all kinds of daily work issues. Here we’ll guide you through how VoIP integration would empower your business for higher work efficiency and more satisfying services.
VoIP Integration with CRM
CRM, Customer Relationship Management, a tool that records customer or potential customers’ data, from personal information to all his previous interaction with your business. With a VoIP-CRM integration, your account management team would never need to fumble the contacts, searching for who the incoming caller is and how far they’ve gone from their last conversation. Instead, all the information they’ve collected about the contact would show up right in front of them when the call comes in, giving them time to recall their memory before they start the conversation, ensuring a smoother communication with the incomer. The integration enables your team to have a highly personalized conversation with each contact, making resolving customer issues less challenging and more efficient.

VoIP Integration with CTI
CTI, Computer Telephony Integration, a technology that integrates computer with telephony in a way that the two can interact and communicate with one another, is actually now widely applied in business communications.
With CTI, tasks that were previously performed on the telephony system could be carried out from your computers and laptops. Holding calls, warm transferring them, queuing them, and communicating with each other through the same interface could be realized easily, creating a more efficient call funnel with shorter waiting times and fewer dropped or missed calls for the callers. This technology is often applied for a more flexible and scalable way of managing phone calls so as to increase call efficiency for businesses.
