Benefits of the Horizon hosted call centre solution

Switched on light bulb

Access anytime, anywhere

Just like the Gamma Horizon phone system and Collaborate unified communications solution, Horizon Contact is cloud hosted and built for workforces that are not always office based. With Horizon Contact, your call centre agents have access to a platform that allows them to deliver first-class customer service anytime, from anywhere. Cloud-based contact centre solutions give businesses like yours the opportunity to attract and retain better staff with more flexible working conditions and the very latest technology. This flexibility also gives you the opportunity to extend available contact hours to accommodate your customers’ needs so your agents can respond to interactions in the evening or at weekends.

Improved customer service

A hosted contact centre service is all about improving customer service. With agents able to view customer records and past omnichannel interactions as new calls, messages or emails come in, they can reply with professional familiarity and speed. Calls are fairly queued with an additional call-back option available if they do not have time to wait. Calls can be directed to the most appropriate agent via dynamic skills-based routing and interactive voice response (IVR) self-service options. They can also be transferred with ease to other colleagues using shared phonebooks and presence information to bring queries to a satisfying conclusion.

So even if you start off small, your call centre can scale up with you to keep pace with your customers’ needs.
