If you experience poor quality calls in your cloud contact center, then rest assured that there will be a concrete reason why and that it is possible to isolate the issue and resolve it. There is no excuse for accepting poor quality audio, dropped calls or latency!
However if your cloud call center solution is not setup right from the beginning, then you can end up stuck with a problem. So how can you ensure that you can resolve any quality problem?
There are six things to check before deploying cloud call center infrastructure:
1. Make sure that your supplier's infrastructure is not just a "wrapper" on top of another call infrastructure product.
2. Ensure that your supplier has its own direct interconnections with telecoms carriers and first line suppliers of phone numbers and other telecoms services.
3. Can your supplier guarantee that your employees connections to audio channels are deployed in the most local possible server location? Find out more here about the factors impacting call quality.
4. Can your vendor guarantee that inbound calls to different phone numbers can have calls routed to the most local possible server location?
5. Is it possible to deploy any standards based phone device for your employees? Or are you restricted in the product to use only a build in browser phone or only devices from your vendor? Check this section for information on connecting any softphone or phone device.
6. Check that your supplier is able to isolate the logs for agent devices and channels directly without needing a third party underlying infrastructure provider for this analysis.
If your vendor is not capable of doing all six of these key things, then you are very likely to have call quality issues that cannot be resolved. So do your homework and concentrate on these infrastructure aspects before selecting your cloud call center vendor.
