Should I use Service Cloud Voice or a CTI Adapter?
What is Service Cloud Voice?
Service Cloud Voice, powered by Amazon Connect, enables you to solve phone cases FASTER and SMARTER! As the only native telephony solution to the Salesforce platform, Service Cloud Voice brings together voice conversations, digital channels, and CRM data in real-time. Both agents and customers stand to gain from the efficiencies created by Service Cloud Voice. Customers benefit from seamless channel transition and enhanced resolution time, while agents get the most suitable call based on their skillset and availability.
Now, not native to the Salesforce platform is a CTI (computer telephony integration) adapter, which brings organization’s phone system features into Salesforce, but has quite a few limitations.
What are the limitations of a CTI Adapter?
Sure, Traditional CTI Adapters ‘get the job done’, but they come with severe limitations and productivity blocks, which requires a large amount of customization, maintenance, upgrades, and long-term management for businesses. Although it minimizes agent toggling, it doesn’t allow for a truly blended agent or a top-notch customer service experience like Service Cloud Voice does.
It’s no secret that companies need to integrate telephony to deliver a complete service experience. The disconnect between call center management and the rest of the service experience has a cost: slower speed of resolution, loss of convenience, and reduced customer satisfaction. But why invest in a CTI Adapter when you can invest in a scalable solution like Service Cloud Voice?
