Getting started with Zoom Contact Center (agents)

Last Updated:

Zoom Contact Center is an omnichannel contact center that's optimized for video and integrated into the same Zoom experience. Zoom Contact Center brings unified communications together with contact center capabilities.

For example, let’s say your organization is a software firm that supports customers in the US and Canada who use MacBooks and Windows laptops. If a French-speaking customer calls in asking for troubleshooting the Windows client, Zoom Contact Center can route them to a tech support agent that speaks French and is proficient with handling issues for Windows.
