Virtual Call Centre
Sophisticated Inbound Solutions
Bespoke cloud based service provides a flexible and reliable solution for handling calls enabling helpline workers to log on from any location and answer communications including voice, webchat or SMS. The VCC works with existing infrastructure and there is no need to invest in costly hardware. Calls can be handled at multiple locations without incurring divert costs.
Helplines are able to select only the features that are necessary to meet the needs of the service and their callers. Workers can log on from any location (including home) and callers can be offered a choice of contact methods including voice, webchat or SMS.
