Max ACD – Altigen

MAX ACD from Altigen is a unified call centre that has been specially developed for Microsoft Skype for Business

A little context…

Now that companies all over the world are using the calling functions of Microsoft Skype for Business, traditional PBX systems are on the way out. However, some companies still have one or a number of call centres, such as a helpline service, customer service team, technical support unit, or sales and marketing division. These call centres are not supported by the Skype for Business server. In order to unify communications and do away with costly call centre equipment, these companies need a solution that works closely with the Skype for Business server, while getting the best out of the infrastructure of the existing database.
