Comment on the News
- “Companies are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees to thrive in the today’s connected world,” said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president, ISV & channel, salesforce.com. “By leveraging the power of the Salesforce1 Customer Platform, LiveOps provides customers with the proven social, mobile and connected cloud technologies to accelerate business success.”
Connect in a Whole New Way with Social, Mobile and Connected Cloud Technologies
The convergence of cloud contact center technologies with social and mobile channels have completely transformed how customers are interacting with brands. LiveOps allows customers to extend their Salesforce CRM with cloud contact center functionality to improve sales and service operations in a multichannel environment. Voice interaction, specifically, is an integral part of delivering amazing customer service. LiveOps Voice Advantage and LiveOps Outbound Advantage bring advanced telephony capabilities to the Salesforce1 Platform for sales and service customer interactions.
Product Key Features
LiveOps Voice Advantage leverages WebRTC technology to transform any browser into a full-featured phone without the need for additional hardware, software or plug-ins. It offers an embedded phone panel for powerful inbound and outbound call control, real-time screen pop for complete visibility into customer record data, integrated call recordings embedded within Salesforce records and bi-directional data exchange and sync between LiveOps and Salesforce.
LiveOps Outbound Advantage is a new outbound dialing solution for contact centers that includes a unique “Lead Upload” tool to generate on-the-fly outbound campaigns. Lead Upload enables inside sales managers to easily create call lists based on pre-defined criteria, such as deal size or industry. The filtered leads are then automatically uploaded to a LiveOps dialer campaign for immediate agent follow-up, increasing the number of calls handled by each agent and reducing call duration.
