Intelecom Moves to Genband's WebRTC Gateway

Intelecom, a provider of cloud-based contact center solutions, is leveraging Genband's WebRTC Gateway (formerly SPiDR) to enhance its Contact Centre solution with real-time communications.

"Our customers turn to us for streamlined contact center solutions that deliver maximum capability, flexibility, and scalability," said Thomas Rodseth, vice president of product and marketing at Intelecom, in a statement."Working with Genband gives us access to the cutting-edge solutions our customers demand in today's market, where personalized, instantaneous customer service is the name of the game."

The first phase of deployment will replace the traditional softphones Intelecom's remote agents currently use with WebRTC clients. By receiving calls within their browsers, agents will have immediate access to the customer's interaction. Plans are already underway for further deployment of WebRTC into Intelecom's customers' web sites via click-to-call buttons to deliver both audio and video calls.

"We're focused on empowering our customers with the real-time communications capabilities that improve their business processes," said David Hiscock, senior vice president of EMEA sales at Genband, in a statement. "Enhancing their multichannel cloud-based solutions with our WebRTC capabilities will enable Intelecom to enhance agent productivity and deliver next generation customer service today."
