What is Evolve Contact Center?
Not a new concept at all, Evolve Contact Center is the next generation Cloud Call Center. You may also hear the terms VoIP Call Center solution, VoIP Contact Center solution, and Cloud Based Contact Center. They all mean the same thing: an extremely robust, tightly integrated platform built to help businesses deliver a more personal, ‘human touch’ experience to their customers.
When you think about call centers what images come to mind?:
- Large open area filled with cubicles and call center agents fielding incoming calls or making outbound calls to prospects and customers.
- Agents wear headsets and have a telephone and computer monitor on their desks.
- Calls are routed to them using customized call center software.
- The limitation in this traditional call center model is that only one form of communication is leveraged: the telephone.
- Very expensive and usually not an affordable product for small businesses.
- Proprietary call center software and hardware, not integrable with 3rd party software.
- Subject to obsolescence and expensive upgrades.
Cloud Contact centers are much different:
- Hosted in the cloud.
- Contact center support teams log in remotely and don’t need to be in a centralized call center type of office.
- Covid ready.
- Contact Center support teams use voice, video, SMS, screen sharing, live chat, and social media to communicate with customers.
- Requires very little hardware.
- Cloud based Contact Center software is always being upgraded at no additional expense to the customer.
- Very affordable, now accessible for small businesses.
There’s never been a more critical time to invest in the experience your customers have with your business. Starting with sales and extending through support, service, invoicing, payments, and full circle to repeat purchases, every customer interaction is an opportunity to create lasting and profitable relationships. Forecasts show Contact Center adoption growing rapidly.
The Evolve Cloud Contact Center (CC) solution is an evolution of traditional call center functionalities and tools. Now, businesses can provide exceptional customer experiences simply by offering the digital communication options that are rapidly growing in use and favor: Live chat, SMS (text), email and social media.

How does Evolve Contact Center work?
Our Contact Center platform can, unlike a traditional call center, integrate with multiple call controls or with any hosted or on-premise PBX that supports SIP trunking. Contact Center’s Automated Call Distribution (ACD) engine routes and manages inbound and outbound media. This feature ensures that a call, email, chat, or text is routed to the proper agent based on queue and skillset management.
Evolve Contact Center has a robust set of features intended for call center supervisors that enable them to manage agent resources and call flows.
- Your supervisors can use custom agent scripting tools and widgets that allow for agent/queue specific desktop apps.
- They can take part in supervisor coaching actions like Listen, Whisper, Join, and Take. The CC platform offers several styles of interactive dashboards that display important CC performance data in real-time including calls in queue, service levels, agent details, alerts, and warnings.
- The reporting feature offers more than 50 types of reports including queue, agent, and media performance.
- Reports are also available on your organization’s IVR data and customer service survey results.
- CC agents can utilize screen pop applications, which allow for information to be collected from your customers during their interactions with the IVR system.
- The platform’s CRM integration allows that data to be displayed on your agent’s desktop during the call which reduces call length and enhances a customer’s experience. The agent system includes call recording of agents as part of the seat license which allows for quality management and call tracking. It also offers detailed search capabilities, unlimited storage time, and scoring for quality assurance to your supervisors.
