NGNCloudComm has added WhatsApp support to its industry leading omnichannel platform. Contact Centers can now add all the NGNCloudComm features including queue and campaign assignments, transcript history, and key data reporting to live chat interactions with the 2.2 billion active WhatsApp global users.
How does it work?
When a user contacts your business WhatsApp account – that chat is routed to an IVR where your Contact Center business rules are applied, and the chat interaction is queued and assigned to the appropriate and available agent.
Agents view and reply to the WhatsApp chat within the NGNCloudComm platform. Agents do not need to have or use their WhatsApp account or any other platform.
Because the interaction occurs within the omnichannel platform, key data points like response time, total chat duration, and resolution are tracked and the chat history is stored. If applicable auto replies can be programmed and agents can transfer the chat interaction to other agents or departments as needed.
