Consilium Software, the unified communications software company specializing in on-premise and cloud solutions for enterprises and contact centers, today announced the availability of the third generation of the Consilium UniAgent™ CRM connector. The new version of Consilium UniAgent™ was designed to improve contact center agent team productivity and reduce IT overhead. The UniAgent™ CRM connector is available as a plug-in which integrates the world's top-ten CRM products with the top-three contact center solutions.
UniAgent™ leverages agents' real-time status to make the presence of agents and supervisors available across teams, enabling faster access to the right resources across an organization and improving first call resolution. Agent and queue statistics available within UniAgent™ empower agents to make decisions to shorten queue wait times and compare their performance with others in their team. Customers can now choose to have centralized licensing control and centralized deployment, doing away with the need for IT to maintain workstation-based licenses. After the one-time license activation the application only requires access to the contact center solution and their on-premise or cloud CRM.
"With no additional hardware introduced, Consilium UniAgent™ is perhaps the only CRM connector which maintains the original reliability of your contact center solution," said Aman Basra, vice president of solutions and co-founder at Consilium Software. "UniAgent's client-based connector approach has passed rigorous testing giving clients the assurance of a robust certified integration given after validation under the Cisco Developer Network (CDN) and Salesforce AppExchange partner programs. The majority of our clients did not want to invest in server hardware to implement a CRM connector as it adds to the IT cost of ownership. With that in mind, Consilium adopts a green IT policy in designing our software, which eliminates the need for servers - our software is completely contained within the user PC."
Consilium UniAgent™ 3.1 is available for Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle Siebel, BMC Remedy, Sugar CRM, Pivotal and CA UniCenter Service Desk, as well as for financial services software such as IBM WebSphere MQ and Oracle Flexcube, among others. The latest version sports a common user interface across multiple contact center platforms including Cisco, Genesys and Avaya. Consilium UniAgent™ now takes advantage of Salesforce.com's Open CTI architecture, with the entire Salesforce-embedded softphone now controlled by Consilium in terms of code and user interface.
In production in customer networks since 2009, Consilium UniAgent was first developed in response to a requirement from Cisco Systems and now has scores of deployments across Asia, Europe and the Americas. Consilium's founders coined the product name and vision for UniAgent™ in January 2008 while brainstorming in a one-room office in Singapore's CBD.
