Upstream Works and ZOOM International Announce Cisco Solution Partnership

Upstream Works Software Ltd. and ZOOM International, both providers of Omnichannel Contact Center solutions, announced a new partnership to provide best-in-class customer experience (CX) solutions and power next-gen Cisco contact centers. The two companies will be showing their joint solutions at the Cisco Live Collaboration Partner Village next week 10-14 June in Orlando, Florida. Together, the companies make it easier and faster to deploy effective solutions and improve business outcomes.

Brian Shore, CEO of ZOOM International explained, “Customer experience is still at the top of the list of C-level priorities. But, there is an inevitable force working against CX improvements inside the contact center. It is the friction caused by separate channels and silo-ed systems. At some point, companies need to bring data and apps together to improve CX.”

Brian added, “With our new, joint integration, we aren’t just connecting two apps. Each of our respective products already bridges to dozens of other contact center apps. Together, we connect to every key vendor, type of app, and channel in the contact center. With our new connector, joint customers can accelerate CX improvements and run a smarter, next-gen Cisco contact center.”

By blending all aspects of contact center functions, Upstream Works and ZOOM are helping organizations run a smarter contact center that delivers a better customer experience and improves operations.
