Arrow Cloud Contact Centre FAQs

What is Omnichannel Communication?2023-08-01T11:08:25+10:00

Omnichannel communication describes a setup where a customer can interact with you via their preferred communication channel. This could include phone, email, SMS, chat, social channels, and video.

What is CCaaS?2023-08-01T11:08:56+10:00

Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) is cloud-based software that provides contact centre functionality via a subscription. It consolidates all customer communications and interactions into a single platform. This will include calls, chat, email, and SMS.

What is Contact Centre for Microsoft Teams?2023-08-01T11:09:39+10:00

Contact centre for Microsoft Teams integrates the functionality of an omnichannel contact centre with Teams, allowing it to become a single communications hub for telephony and contact centre. This creates a seamless experience for your business, with no changes to the MS Teams user experience.

Call centres can also be integrated with Microsoft Teams. See our FAQ on the difference between a call centre and a contact centre.

Call Centre vs Contact Centre: What’s the difference?2023-08-01T11:10:10+10:00
  • A call centre manages inbound and outbound calls and is limited to voice-based interactions with your customers. You’ll have access to call metric data to better manage your call centre staff.
  • A contact centre handles not just calls, but all interactions between customers and staff, both inbound and outbound. Customers can interact with a company via their channel of choice, whether that be phone, email, chat, social, or even video.
