Unifying Communications At Your Fingertips
In a previous blog we looked at the advantages of cloud-based platforms, detailing the differences between UCaaS and CCaaS. These platforms aim to unify business operations into one easy-to-use service, either by focussing on internal or external customer-facing communications.
UCaaS stands for Unified Communications as a Service and deals with internal services, CCaaS stands for Contact Centre as a Service and deals with the external services. These platforms can be used in tandem depending on business requirements – which has improved productivity and allowed companies to save precious time in their workflow…
But what if there was a way to unify further? This article looks further at the future of cloud-based platforms and the ability to combine both Customer Experience (CX) and Employee Experience (EX) into one communication channel XCaaS.
What is XCaaS?
XCaaS stands for Experience as a Service. It is a cloud-based platform similar to UCaaS and CCaaS, but with a focus on uniting the two to easily and simply support the communications requirements of all employees dealing with both internal and external facing communications. Empowering all employees to work together to deliver differentiated customer experiences.
XCaaS makes it possible to combine voice, contact centre operations, video and chat and APIs, producing a truly modern communication experience. Using one open integration framework the platform can connect productivity tools like Microsoft Teams and CRM systems. Gartner predicts that “by 2024, organizations providing a total experience will outperform competitors by 25% in satisfaction metrics for both CX and EX.” *
