• Increased capacity for incoming calls
• Geographically redundant platform
• An extension of the routing capabilities such as sending an e-mail
• Improved message quality
• An improved graphical layout with better search functionality
• The possibility to integrate SIP in 2012 (for IP telephony)
• An improvement of the contact center in the cloud
ECT previously reported about this solution in a press release from 2 March 2011.
About INtellECT® Next-Generation Intelligent Networks
