Traditional call centers face high levels of churn due to low satisfaction levels. Working remotely allows for flexible hours which improve agent satisfaction rates. Cloud-based call centers also give access to a larger pool of agents who are more experienced and certified. 

Cloud-based virtual call centers require less investment in infrastructure as well: A work-at-home agent requires – A headset, a laptop/desktop/Chromebook, a steady internet connection, and virtual call center software. Supervisors can make changes to workflow or organizational operations via their dashboard and the same will reflect on agents’ dashboards as well. The entire process is seamless.

Compare this with traditional call centers, where technology isn’t up to date, and simple changes cause a lot of downtimes. A traditional on-premise call center has 30% more annual spend than cloud-based contact centers.

Call monitoring and Whisper coaching
