Enghouse News and Announcements

Pre-Press Release Announcement!

RingCentral Call CenterEnghouse Interactive’s Contact Center Solutions are now integrated with RingCentral UCaaS!

Enghouse Unified CommunicationUnified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) is fast becoming businesses’ most considered option for their communication infrastructure, offering enterprise telephony, multichannel collaboration and more.
According to Synergy Research Group the number of UCaaS subscribers jumped by 41% in 2020 alone with total worldwide subscriptions now topping 17 million subscribers and is expected to grow to a $210B market by 2028.

Integration of the contact center application with the UC solution is key for the best agent and customer experience. According to Metrigy Research (formerly Nemertes), over a one-year period, customer ratings (as measured by CSAT, Net Promoter Score (NPS), Customer Effort Score, or a custom rating system) increase by 56.7% when the contact center and UC are integrated, versus only 38.3% when they are not. Operational costs decrease by 19.7% when integrated, versus only 14.5% when they are not.

EI Customers who have or are considering UC market leader and global provider RingCentral for their enterprise communication solution can now migrate from their legacy premise-based PBX solution to RingCentral UCaaS. Whether an Enghouse contact center is deployed on premise or migration to a cloud-based contact center is being contemplated, Enghouse Interactive’s integration to RingCentral affords customers flexible options and their existing Enghouse Contact Center Solution is fully supported. No need to re-train agents. No loss of historical data. Business operations and workflow remain as before.

Broadening our support for RingCentral, the latest release of Enghouse Interactive’s Call Recording and Quality Management solution, QMS v8.2, now enables existing customers migrating from their on-prem PBX to RingCentral to retain their call recordings without loss of data.

Enghouse believes in flexible and broad support for many communication providers. By Integrating with both market leaders in the UCaaS space – RingCentral and Microsoft Teams, Enghouse Interactive can better promote collaboration across all communication channels within the contact center.

NEW LAUNCH: Enghouse SmartQuality –
Revolutionary, AI-Enabled Agent Evaluation

Contact Center Supervisors typically listen to just 5% of recorded agent interactions with customers. How can agent evaluations be accurate and fair with 95% of agent interactions going unreviewed? SmartQuality to the rescue!

NEW LAUNCH: QMS for Cloud – Combines the Proven Call Recording Features of Enghouse Quality Management Suite with the Advantages of Enghouse Cloud

This product is the ideal solution for those looking either to move to a cloud-based call recording solution or for an easy way to add call recording to Microsoft Teams or other enterprise UC solutions.

NEW RELEASE: QMS v8.2 – Support for RingCentral Recordings and Other New Capabilities Now Available

In this latest release, QMS enables the secure storage of and access to recordings made by RingCentral, improves content analysis and enhances transcription accuracy.

Benefits include…

  • Importing RingCentral recordings – Existing customers migrating from their on-prem PBX to RingCentral can retain their call recordings without loss of data.
  • Content Analyzers – Support for search terms containing combinations of words and phrases to create alerts and flags based on recorded interactions. This can be useful for script adherence, campaign callouts, competitor flagging, identifying churn risk, call categorization, and more.
  • Transcription enhancement – Inclusion of the Add Words function that allows users to create customized dictionaries of words specific to their industry or organization – useful for domain language training and improving transcription accuracy.

NEW RELEASE: Proteus v8.2, Enghouse’s Analytics Solution
– Now with Comprehensive Reporting for Microsoft Teams

Proteus’ latest release delivers numerous reports and dashboards designed to provide more insight for businesses using Microsoft Teams.

  • Migration planning and tracking – Proteus can map usage and ownership of telecom resources prior to a migration to Teams so that impact assessment and service rationalization can be performed prior to migration, and then track migration progress and assess uptake of new services within Teams.
  • Complete call journey analysis – Businesses operating contact center solutions or attendant consoles with Microsoft Teams often do not have complete visibility of the customer’s complete call journey. Proteus helps to solve this by offering detailed call analysis for every leg of a call, allowing managers to assess issues in call distribution or policy violations and take corrective action.
  • Quality of service monitoring – Within Teams, Proteus collects and analyzes both call detail records and quality of service records in order to provide comprehensive management and oversight of complex Teams deployments.
