Collaboration is essential for a company that wants to keep its customers assisted and satisfied. When customer service reps work together on tickets, answers are delivered in a more efficient manner. As such, businesses need to equip these teams with communication tools that can make collaboration easier and help resolve tickets faster to ensure customer satisfaction.

Today, with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic organizations have had to adapt the working from home guidelines due to government and WHO directives. It is essential for businesses to adapt to the new shift seamlessly and ensure that customer-facing teams continue to efficiently deliver satisfactory customer service.

Focus has now shifted to technologies that help businesses communicate from anywhere, at any time. Cloud based communication platforms offer the ability to have a secure, scalable and reliable application without having to install, configure or maintain hardware. Such platforms, enable businesses to manage communication from multiple channels in a less costly, more streamlined, and agile manner. Access to the platform is made easier with web-enabled devices used in today's business environment (e.g. smartphones, tablets), making access to data including customer information is even easier.
