NICE inContact Announces Support for Routing Omnichannel Interactions Natively in Salesforce Live Agent

With API integrations with Salesforce, CXone intelligently routes interactions to improve omnichannel customer service and increase agent efficiency

Salt Lake City, September 26, 2018 – NICE inContact, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business, today announced NICE inContact CXone support for intelligent routing of omnichannel customer interactions natively in Salesforce Live Agent and delivery of enhanced workforce optimization (WFO) within the Salesforce user interface. CXone helps agents be more efficient by handling omnichannel customer interactions and accessing WFO functionality from within the familiar Salesforce agent user interface. Integrations between CXone and Salesforce automatically provide the information agents need to deliver personalized service and outstanding customer experiences.

“Companies of all sizes are looking to elevate customer, partner and employee experiences to better compete and grow,” said Mike Wolff, SVP, Global ISV Partners, Salesforce. “By leveraging the power of Salesforce, and through continuous innovation, NICE inContact provides customers with new ways to power exceptional customer experiences via an intuitive and integrated agent desktop.”

Increase Efficiency, Improve Personalized Service with Omnichannel Natively Inside Salesforce
CXone Omnichannel Routing support of Salesforce Live Agent cases and chats, via API integration, provides advanced skills-based routing capabilities for omnichannel interactions natively in the Salesforce Live Agent UI. This helps ensure that customers are connected with the best agent to help them get answers or resolve issues, and agents can efficiently handle interactions in the native Salesforce Omni-channel widget – a familiar interface that reduces training requirements and increases productivity.

Increase Employee Engagement with Enhanced Integrated WFO Functionality
Tight integration of CXone WFO Pro within Salesforce lets agents easily access WFO functionality without leaving Salesforce, and includes WFO notifications, schedule access, time-off requests, shift bidding, quality evaluations and coaching. New agent self-assessments functionality and CXone Quality Management Analytics Pro further enhances employee efficiency and engagement.

Agent self-assessments let agents provide personal feedback on their performance to create two-way dialogue with supervisors for coaching, learning and improvement. CXone QM Analytics Pro is a new omnichannel quality management offering, fully integrated with Salesforce, that applies speech and text analytics to automatically pinpoint the right interactions for quality evaluations and agent coaching sessions – helping managers and supervisors work more efficiently and effectively. Managers and supervisors can use automatic analysis of customer sentiment, plus predefined or custom-defined categories and phrases, to select the right voice or digital interactions for review to keep agents on message and on track to develop their skills.

“Winning companies in today’s competitive experience economy build loyalty and advocacy with exceptional customer experiences,” said Paul Jarman, CEO NICE inContact. “NICE inContact CXone continues to innovate to make each agent’s job easier and more engaging so they can deliver outstanding customer experiences and help drive topline and bottom line growth. As a Salesforce Platinum ISV Partner, we’re focused on providing customers a unified and integrated experience that works easily as part of the agent desktop.”

Additional Enhancements Boost Employee Productivity with Integrated WebRTC Softphone and Single Sign On
New integrated WebRTC softphone supports easy handling for all customer voice interactions, both inbound and outbound. With new single sign on (SSO), agents are automatically logged into CXone on Salesforce eliminating the need to maintain multiple user credentials and helping to improve security.
