Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) is a cloud-delivered suite optimized for managing interactions with customers and, more broadly, the entire customer experience (CX). Almost all CCaaS platforms and solutions share the same basic features:

  • Inbound routing of omnichannel interactions via automatic call distribution (ACD), interactive voice response (IVR), virtual agents, chatbots, etc. Some will also support outbound interactions.
  • Analytics and reporting on those omnichannel interactions (voice, text, chat, video, messaging, etc.).
  • A user interface that is tailored toward presenting the human agent with the information they need.
  • Integrations to databases and other enterprise systems so agents have the data they need.
  • Various tools to help the agent and their supervisors to measure their performance and improve (coaching, training, etc.).
  • Support for artificial intelligence (AI) in its varied forms, from conversational chatbots, transcription and sentiment analysis to generative AI-based assistants that provide real-time agent assistance and after-call summarization that can be used by supervisors, as well.
  • Workforce engagement management solutions that provide scheduling.

When choosing from among the various CCaaS providers, a business should identify its customer service needs and goals which might include things like supporting multiple communications channels, offering self-service options and what it needs from a staffing and scheduling perspective. For example, will agents be working from a single facility, multiple facilities and/or will they be working from home. These last requirements alone can heavily influence what type of solution makes sense. Other considerations include compliance requirements in all the regions in which it operates (regulations vary), scalability (how many agents), will the given platform (easily) integrate with existing systems, cost, available features, reliability, security of the platform, stability of the vendor, etc. These are just a few of the major considerations involved in selecting a CCaaS vendor.
