Connect First Announces Certified Cloud Routing Destinations for Contact Centers

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Boulder, CO (PRWEB) August 07, 2012 Connect First, a premiere provider of Cloud Routing solutions for the Direct Response industry, has announced their Certified Cloud Routing Destination program in response to customer requests. Connect First’s Cloud Routing is a hosted solution that allows intelligent load balancing of inbound calls to multiple contact centers. With Connect First Cloud Routing, calls can be routed to multiple distributed contact centers or assigned to secondary queues such as IVR, or specialized ACD skill groups.


Connect First was recently honored for Outstanding Innovation and received the 2012 Next Generation Network Leadership Award. “Connect First Cloud Routing has proven it is exceptional and its innovation has contributed to the transformation of the industry,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We are pleased to honor Connect First for driving the next generation of technologies that will enable our communications needs.” According to Connect First’s VP of Sales, Darren Prine, “Being both a Cloud Routing Provider and having Certified Destinations which clients can route their calls to gives Connect First a unique advantage in the industry.” What is Certified Cloud Routing Destination A Certified Cloud Routing Destination is a contact center that uses and has been trained on the Connect First ACD. If both the Cloud Routing client and the outsourced call center are using the Connect First platform, the benefit to the client includes: Lower Cost – Since both the Cloud Routing customer and the Cloud Destination would be on the Connect First network, there is a tremendous cost savings to the Cloud Routing customer. In fact, clients pay about a penny per minute less to route to a call center on our network than to one that is not.

More Efficient Routing - By both the Cloud Routing client and their outsourced center being on the Connect First platform, the call routing to the center is radically more efficient. Connect First essentially has a window into the center’s agent availability which should translate to the highest answer rate possible.

Better Reporting – If an outsourced call center utilizes the Connect First ACD and is receiving traffic from a Connect First Cloud Routing customer, we can provide in-depth, detailed reporting to the client through our Central Reporting interface. Clients will be able to see complete, front to back, reporting on each call.
