Telstra Web Contact Centre provides a feature-rich multimedia contact centre solution, hosted on Telstra’s network and accessed via the internet or private data network.
Telstra Web Contact Centre is a versatile multimedia contact centre solution that can improve customer service, agent productivity and teamwork. Hosted in Telstra’s cloud and accessed via the internet, it requires minimal capital investment and, no additional on-site equipment.
The Telstra Web Contact Centre solution is a cost-effective managed solution that gives your customers the choice to contact your organisation by telephone, email, fax, web chat, voice call-back or web call-back. It is flexible and efficient, scaling up or down to suit staffing levels and your business demands.
Manage your contacts without buying equipment
Telstra Web Contact Centre provides the same functionality as a traditional contact centre without the need to purchase or manage additional on-site equipment or infrastructure.
Easy to set-up and scale
Telstra Web Contact Centre is simple to set up and deploy. All you need is a suitable PC, a phone and internet access*. It also provides the flexibility to rapidly scale up or down, depending on business needs.
Web Contact Centre is a hosted solution, so there is no need to purchase or manage on-site equipment or infrastructure, eliminating most upfront capital expenditure costs. Your business can also choose to pay as you go, with charges listed on a monthly bill.
Personalise your customer service
Customers can contact your staff using their preferred method, whether it is by telephone, voice call-back, fax, email, web chat or web call-back.
Enable workforce flexibility
Employees can work from and be contacted almost anywhere, assisting staff retention. All they need is a suitable PC, a phone and internet access* to be part of a virtual contact centre.
Helps support business continuity
Hosted in the cloud, Telstra Web Contact Centre can quickly and cost-effectively maintain business continuity. If there is an outage at your primary site, agents can log in from multiple locations to continue working. And if your internet service is disrupted, they can still answer calls by phone.
