Maximizing the Omnichannel CX with AI
Despite recent rapid digital transformation efforts, only 45% of consumers are "very satisfied" with their business communications. That means big opportunities for the companies who get it right. Get the data and learn how AI can help with our 11th annual Global Customer Engagement Report.

Vonage Contact Center and Microsoft Teams integration (pilot)

  • See Microsoft Teams user availability in the VCC address book, which makes it easy for agents to call or consult with a Microsoft Teams user without having to know (and enter) their phone number each time

  • Work smarter with Microsoft Teams user and VCC agent presence synchronization, to help agents decide which Microsoft Teams user to call or consult with by showing the user’s call availability

For Vonage customers who have Salesforce

We’re excited to announce these Salesforce Service Cloud Voice “Partner Telephony” features:

  • External routing provides the option for VCC to route voice alongside digital channels and a single routing engine for all channels handled by an agent in Salesforce

  • External routing also facilitates transfers to Salesforce queues, for distributing work to the most appropriate agent

For Vonage customers who have either Microsoft Dynamics or Zendesk

Specific enhancements include:

  • No-Code Data Connector for Microsoft Dynamics removes the requirement for specialist knowledge

  • Further usability enhancements to the Zendesk for Support and Zendesk for Sell integrations

ContactPad Anywhere (available in limited early access)

The new ContactPad Anywhere provides:

  • A Vonage Integration Suite browser extension that delivers basic telephony integration — including web-based applications such as CRM, CDP, or databases — and supports both click-to-dial and screen pops

The Vonage Contact Center Q1 2022 Release rolls out the week of Jan. 24, 2022.
