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 

Cost savings

For small and medium-sized companies this is the most important benefit due to the significant expenses required by previous solutionsCloud solutions do not require any initial investment or hardware (except PC and headphones) reducing the need for IT personnel. 

Simple management

Cloud solutions enable a simple management of the Contact Center platform without the need of IT . In addition, the company will always have the latest software version compliant with data protection regulations. DNCLs (Do Not Call Lists) can be uploaded  and changed in real-time. 

Flexibility

Flexible subscription models allow the expansion or reduction of the Contact Center platform according to each company’s specific needs, eliminating the costs of non-used licenses during low season or easily increasing during peak season. 

Mobility

Cloud solutions do not require a contact center in each business location. In addition, employees may work remotely with no need for a new telephony of hardware systems.

Multiple applications: Cloud solutions allow the integration of numerous applications and functionalities, facilitating user access. Altitude Software’s application marketplace, Altitude Xperience Hub, enhances the ecosystem of products and solutions to providing greater value for customers.

Cloud platforms allow companies to address customer queries through different channels in a single virtual desktop,  improving agent efficiency and offering a 360-degree view of the Customer Journey.
