You don’t need to be a voice networking whiz to enable BYOC connectivity for your contact center. Read on to find out how to do it the easy way with AudioCodes.
Microsoft Announces the Digital Contact Center Platform
One of the key announcements made at Microsoft’s recent Inspire event was the launch of the Microsoft Digital Contact Center Platform. Bringing together Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Power Platform and Nuance, the new platform “brings together a comprehensive yet flexible solution for contact centers, delivering best-in-class AI that powers self-service experiences, live customer engagements, collaborative agent experiences, business process automation, advanced telephony, and fraud prevention capabilities.”
Coming in the wake of previous announcements relating to Dynamics 365’s expanding contact center capabilities, Microsoft’s latest news makes its intentions to disrupt the global contact center market very clear.
Talk to Your Customers Via Dynamics 365 Voice Channel
Dynamics 365 is central to the new Digital Contact Center Platform. Microsoft’s well-known CRM platform has been offering contact center capabilities (Dynamics 365 Customer Service) for some time, and more recently has included omnichannel connectivity to enable companies to interact with their customers via email, chat, messaging and voice.
Dynamics 365 Customer Service voice channel allows incoming and outgoing calling between contact center agents and customers with phone numbers provided by Microsoft. If your organization is not in the USA, or if you want to connect to a carrier of your choice, Microsoft provides an alternative solution – Direct Routing via Azure Communication Services (ACS).
Direct Routing provides a great deal of flexibility, but it requires the deployment of a certified session border controller (SBC) to enable the connection between Dynamics 365 and the public telephony network (PSTN) or other voice platform. This can pose a challenge for Dynamics 365 customers and resellers whose expertise focuses on the Dynamics 365 service and its core capabilities. For outsiders, voice connectivity is viewed as something of a mystery, a field that few understand really well. Setting up and maintaining voice networks and connecting between them is a very specialized field and requires specific know-how and expertise.
