Windstream Enterprise has unveiled a new web-based chat functionality for its proprietary OfficeSuite UC® Contact Center Services (CCS).

This cloud-based solution empowers contact centers to handle a higher volume of customer interactions while maintaining intuitive management and agent control — all in a single portal.

“While chat solutions have been around for a while, it is becoming the preferred communication channel for customers, with some studies showing it will soon overtake voice as the most popular channel for customer service due to younger generations relying more heavily on digital interactions,” said Austin Herrington, vice president of product management at Windstream Enterprise. “We leveraged our extensive experience with contact centers and our own software development shop to create a solution that takes live chat to the next level.”

OfficeSuite UC CCS with live chat delivers benefits to both contact center agents and supervisors, including:

Managers can monitor, coach, and answer chat messages on behalf of the agent functionality for supervisors
Up to six simultaneous chat sessions per agent
The ability to handle voice calls and chat sessions at the same time
Fully customizable chat questions, wait treatments, and post-chat surveys
Live status dashboards and reports for analyzing historical chat activity
Simple installation processes to get customer websites enabled for chat quickly
