Alexander Lunde, CEO, predicts that the partnership with Nice InContact will add a huge number of new customers to Vergic.
NICE InContact + Vergic
Vergic and Market Leader NICE inContact Form Strategic Partnership to Deliver Digital First Engagement Technology.
Serving more than 500,000 contact center agents and a market leader in both The Forrester Wave™ and Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, NICE inContact is one of the world’s leading reseller of cloud contact center platforms. To meet end-customers’ new online behavior and digital demands, NICE inContact has signed with Vergic to integrate Vergic’s digital engagement technology into their existing CXone platform.
Customers’ New Behavior Challenges Traditional Solutions
Traditional contact channels today, such as phone and email, are challenged by digital alternatives. Customers’ new online behavior requires a more digital-first approach. Even though phone and email are still major contact channels, digital options are growing in demand. Engagement features like live chat, chatbots and video are becoming more requested features from customers.
NICE inContact added chat as a contact channel early on in their platform — but with limited functionality. When faced with the need of a more advanced chat and digital engagement technology, NICE inContact decided to partner with Vergic in order to integrate the Vergic digital engagement technology.
New Features Added to NICE inContact CXone Platform
With Vergic’s engagement technology, several new digital channels and possibilities are added to NICE inContact’s CXone platform:
- Advanced chat
- Chatbot & chatbot interfaces
- Phone to co-browsing
- Online collaboration tool
- Video chat
- Engagement rule engine
- Screen and file sharing
