Cloud technology solutions are one of the major trends in almost all industries. They provide multiple benefits  and simplify digital transformation processes. They have become essential in the Contact Center sector, since they allow efficient storage of thousands of pieces of data that are generated ever day as well as easy access to the data. In fact, up to 88.8% of customers agree that Contact Center solutions in the cloud allowed them to reduce costs, among other benefits. 

In the last few years, Cloud technology is a concept on the agenda of decision makers as a turning point on their work processes. These technologies are now a reality in which more companies, regardless of the sector are investing, due to the benefits they provide. 

Customer service departments are no strangers to this change, since they generate and process  large amounts of information. This is why they are adapting their software to run their activity on cloud. 

According to a study conducted by Markets and Markets, the Contact Center market on the cloud was valued at 5.73 billion dollars in 2016 and it is expected to reach 20.93 billion dollars in 2022, experiencing an annual growth rate of 25.2%. 

Benefits of using cloud solutions
