Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) solutions have evolved to address the growing communication needs of modern enterprise customers and businesses. CCaaS platforms are geared toward external customer communications, while UCaaS solutions are designed for internal collaborations. Cloud-based technology has revolutionized contact centers, making them more agile and able to meet customers in an omnichannel environment. UCaaS tools further amplify a company’s ability to guide customers to the necessary solutions.
An emerging trend is integrating UCaaS and CCaaS platforms into a single-pane-of-glass dashboard to streamline communications. However, integration itself is not enough. Simply applying APIs can lead to clunky and wooden workflows. To maximize results, companies need an integrator—a provider that can stitch together applications in meaningful ways and incorporate legacy systems, such as analog phone lines, into a simplified workflow.
This blog will review the best-in-class UCaaS and CCaaS tools from CBTS and discuss the benefits of integration.

There are many compelling reasons to integrate CCaaS and UCaaS tools, especially when working with an integrator like CBTS. They include:
Each company and its workflows are unique. That is why a turnkey solution is not ideal for integration. Instead, organizations need white-glove, customizable services finely tuned to your company’s needs. Working with an integrator lets your company craft solutions across platforms to optimize workflow to ensure the best customer experience possible.
With over 20 years of telecommunications experience, CBTS has the knowledge and expertise to serve as an integrator for your company. No matter which cloud-based contact center solution is right for your business, CBTS can streamline your work processes into a unified communications platform that drives customer experience and boosts collaboration across the enterprise.
