What is Cloud Call Center

What is a Cloud Call Center?

A cloud call center platform does similar functions to a traditional call center. It’s a customer service solution based on the cloud that manages inbound and/or outbound communications with customers.

The key distinction lies in the operational approach. Cloud call centers operate through the internet connection, while traditional ones rely on physical phone lines and servers.

How does Cloud-based Call Center Work?

A cloud-based call center operates over the Internet, which means it handles all customer interactions, including voice, text messages, social media, and even video chats over an Internet connection.

When a customer calls, their call is directed to the right agent based on predetermined rules like IVR selections or agent availability. Since everything is stored in the cloud, it offers flexibility for remote work and allows businesses to easily scale up or down based on call volume. It’s a
convenient and efficient solution for handling customer phone calls without the hassle of traditional infrastructure.
