About a year ago, while deploying a very large cloud based call center from one of the Gartner groups upper right quadrant companies, Amazon announced AWS Connect! That was the day the disruption of all you ever knew about call centers changed forever!
Most Call Centers, especially cloud based providers, have a platform that supports thousands of clients, all with different call center requirements. Most of these providers have partnerships with other companies that provide additional call center functionality like Speech Recognition , text to speech, Artificial intelligence, Voice Analytics, chat, email and social media integration.
Typically a cloud provider can NOT make a feature available to you, unless it is available to all the other folks on the same platform as your company. You share everything, maybe even data that you do now want shared with other companies!
Each of these feature also increases the agent desktop license fees that each of these cloud providers extracts on a monthly basis from each company that makes use of their cloud call center platform. The average agent license fee is $140 for a basic seat. Did you want recording? Chat? Email? SMS? Salesforce integration? Each feature adding to that base license fee ending with an average agent desktop license fee of $280 a month per agent. In a call center with 50 agents that could be as much as $168,000 per year in license fees alone, before you take your first phone call!
What would happen if there was no license fee? What if you only paid a modest .018 per connected minute for your call center? What if you had your own Cloud Call Center instance that you shared with nobody else but your own enterprise team mates? What if you had access to all the “bells and whistles” like natural language interfaces and artificial intelligent call routing without going to some third party provider?
