According to the Gartner Report “A Technology Framework for Enterprise Unified Communications” (Bern Elliot, January 2010, G00173410) “voice is the most important real-time communication channel. Enterprise voice is typically delivered through a PBX or an IP-PBX. However, the voice area is evolving rapidly, with a wide range of software-based solutions entering the market”
Altitude vBox 4.0 installations can start with just a few seats and grow to meet any organization´s specific needs, enhancing features and functionalities along the way. IP-enabled agents can get started using Altitude Unified Desktop, an out-of-the-box multimedia agent desktop that includes an integrated SIP soft-phone, as well as the ability to integrate any custom desktop application or a third party CRM application, in order to provide data capabilities and multimedia interaction handling.
“Put together with the Altitude uCI contact center suite, the Altitude vBox allows organizations to rapidly deploy a powerful and highly scalable IP multimedia contact center solution and infrastructure at a very competitive cost,” says Miguel Lopes, Vice President, Marketing and Product Management at Altitude Software. “This is a great one-stop-shop solution and the right choice for established companies to achieve the rapid deployment of new sites or to tie flexible operations into legacy infrastructures.”
