OAKLAND, Calif., February 6, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Businesses can now make and receive calls directly within Sugar, as a result of a native integration between Amazon Connect and Aavaz Call Center Accelerator.
Aavaz has resolved a common issue for organizations and teams who make or receive a moderate to a large number of phone calls as part of their day-to-day business and use the Sugar Platform to manage their customer relationships. When telesales software and CRM are isolated instances, the task of maintaining clear and concise records of various customer interactions is a manual one, prone to error and more often, oversight. This has a cascading effect on all follow-up activities and future interactions with the customer. In addition to a denigration of customer data/intelligence, having two siloed solutions is also more time-consuming and costly.
We are excited to have a partner in our ecosystem that offers an integration to AWS Connect. The native integration to the Sugar platform provides a makes leveraging the power of AWS Connect quick and easy.
Mark Weitzel, Sr. Director of World Wide ISV Alliances for SugarCRM
The native integration of Aavaz Call Center Acceleration and Sugar bridges that gap by allowing customer service agents to make and receive calls through a “softphone” while in their Sugar instance. The system automatically tracks and records all key metrics related to the call and allows the agent to instantly record notes and automate follow-up activity. This allows for a more holistic customer service experience since callers can have unprecedented visibility into all aspects of a customer account. By automatically tracking and recording all metrics related to calls and cross-referencing them to contacts, opportunities and tickets, this fully integrated platform speeds up outbound sales and marketing efforts and provides an overall increase in customer satisfaction for support operations.
The integration of Amazon Connect - a “contact center as a service” offering hosted in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud– provides all the benefits of a cloud-based solution.This includes no on-premise hardware, simple set-up and administration and an attractive “pay as you go” pricing model. In addition, Amazon Connect is a proven solution that has been used within Amazon’s own customer contact center for many years. The growing dominance of Amazon and AWS gives users the peace of mind that the solution is stable and dependable and will be well supported in the future.
