  • If a customer has already renewed their contract with the existing premise vendor.
  • Cost could be a factor. Most CCaaS seats range from $75-175 per seat/per month.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is one of the many benefits of a CCaaS solution. You can choose only what you need at first (i.e. You can have an IVR & ACD only, without Omni-channel or WFO).

Yes, we would be able to implement an “overlay” architecture which would allow you to keep your PBX and the CCaaS would be on top of your PBX. This is a very popular solution.

Yes, redundancy is already built in within a cloud solution. There are multiple geo data centers in place to support all types of transmissions & applications. Within the data centers there are multiple redundant servers and microservers available to support the businesses to prevent outages.

It will all depend on the existing environment (network, number of seats, business type) that is in place. However, in most cases a 45-60 day implementation time would be the average which would include planning, implementation and support.
