Direct From Dreamforce: 10 Reasons To Put Phone Inside the Agent Console

There are too many sessions to count at Dreamforce, and you’re bound to miss some good ones – so, if you missed it – here’s the recap from’s CTI integration session – Putting Phone Inside the Agent Console.

To start, here’s why you shouldn’t ignore phone:

  • 68% of companies support phone as a channel today.
  • Over the next 12-24 months, a 32% increase in call volume is predicted.
  • 73% of customers choose telephone as their preferred channel.

Why voice is a high volume channel:

  • Traditional – Everyone uses it, grandma included.
  • Personal – The phone gives a more personal touch to the customer experience, compared to other channels such as email or chat.
  • Real Time – The phone is arguably the best channel for maters that are critical, urgent, and in need of an immediate response.

Using CTI:

  • Increases agent flexibility – Manage two systems (CRM and contact center) from one desktop.
  • Provides easy access to customer information – See all the important information instantly.
  • Increases agent efficiency and productivity – Automate everything (call & case logging).
