Setting up contact center integration Follow

Overview

Note: This feature needs to be enabled by Zoom. After contacting support, please allow up to 3 business days for the feature to be enabled.

Account owners and admins can integrate Zoom Phone with contact center solutions, allowing you to utilize the phone features of Zoom Phone while using a contact center solution to handle calls. Contact center integration provides these benefits:

  • Zoom Phone integrates with contact centers using a private multi-tenant SIP trunk. Any calls between Zoom Phone and contact centers are on-net so PSTN charges are not incurred.
  • Easy on-boarding experience for admins using a simple provisioning method. Admins don’t need to deal with complex SIP trunk provisioning.
  • Zoom Phone has partnered with the top cloud contact center solutions in the market including Genesys, Five9, Nice inContact, Talkdesk, and Twillio.
