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 teams have access to a platform that allows them to deliver first-class customer service anytime, from anywhere.

Cloud-based solutions allow your businesses to attract and retain better staff with more flexible working conditions and the latest advancements in technology. This flexibility also presents opportunities to extend available contact hours to accommodate your customers’ needs, so you can respond to interactions in the evening or at weekends.

Improved customer service

A communications management platform is all about improving customer service. With your team 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. Additionally, calls can be directed to the most appropriate team member via dynamic skills-based routing and interactive voice response (IVR) self-service options. Customers can also be transferred with ease to other colleagues using shared phonebooks and presence information to bring queries to a satisfying conclusion.

Quick, secure and scalable deployment

With a cloud-hosted communications management platform, there is no need for expensive hardware deployment or maintenance.

Horizon Contact can be quickly and securely configured alongside - or in addition to - your Horizon phone system. Horizon Contact can also grow with your business through the simple addition of extra licences. Even if you start off small, your business can scale up with you to keep pace with your customers’ needs.

Hosted CRM integration

Enabling your team to access customer details as they call in is critical for success. This can only be achieved through CRM integration.

Horizon Contact integrates with top CRMs (Microsoft Dynamics, Salesforce and more) to automatically display caller details, allowing your staff to click-to-dial from CRM records and ensure interactions with your customers are informed, ultimately improving the customer experience.

Cloud-hosted insight management and control

Cloud contact solutions rely on the ability to monitor team performance.

Horizon Contact enables supervisors to access live data for contact queues and staff performance to ensure your customer communications are effective, every time.

As well as wallboards tracking user performance, supervisors have the option to create multiple reports that can be scheduled and viewed within the Horizon Contact portal to provide information on calls, web chat and email communications to ensure customer queries are being dealt with as quickly as possible.
