Improving Business Productivity Quickly and at a Lower Cost
- The cloud-hosted model enables contact centers to be more productive, offering better service to clients with reduced capital expenditures (CAPEX), than on-premises implementation models.
- With a hosted or cloud solution, all features and functionalities are on demand. These solutions are easily scalable, so as businesses need an increase or decrease in any of the resources, they can adapt quickly by adding or reducing them.
- The operating expenditure (OPEX) model for hosted and cloud contact centers allows small and medium contact centers to utilize resources and technologies that traditionally only large enterprises have been able to afford since they require heavy capital investment and a dedicated team to lead infrastructure maintenance and management.
- Large enterprises have been most interested in the dedicated cloud model because it provides essential security and reliability. On the other hand, small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are drawn by the multi-tenant cloud model, which offers advanced technology at a low cost.
- By leaving the management of IT infrastructure to a specialized vendor, channel, or service provider, companies free up resources better used to strengthen the core business.
