Double the fun, a peach of a pair, tea for two. Twice is nice when it comes to many things, including Genesys being the only contact center vendor named a leader in two 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrants.
Yet, there are times when one is the nicest number of all.
For example, a cloud contact center solution provider that provides one company CX offers many advantages over a vendor with a marketecture solution compiled of components developed separately from two or more companies.
With rising customer expectations, the stakes have never been higher to deliver magnificent customer experiences. Today’s customers expect omnichannel engagement across a rapidly growing number of channels. A fully integrated platform with synchronized engineering provides the one company experience to seamlessly support both current and future goals.
This leads to an important question.
How can you determine if a cloud provider has a one company CX solution or is promoting what appears to be a marketecture only offer, by bundling existing products and marketing them as something new?
In other words, is the proposed cloud solution really as nice as it seems?
On the surface, it can be difficult to determine. But, if you dig a little deeper, and ask the right questions, you’ll likely find that the marketecture solution lacks consistency with some undesirable gaps and shortcomings.
Here are some important questions to ask as you compare cloud contact center solutions:
The questions listed above all boil down to the same overall question. How “pure” is the cloud contact center technology that is being offered? Chances are that under the cover, it’s far more convoluted than you would expect. The reality is that not every cloud solution offers the benefits of the cloud.
In essence, you could place cloud contact center solutions into five unique categories:
