    コンタクトセンター運用を支える"関節"役: Twilio Sync API Sync Joints of the Contact Center Header JP

    この記事は英語版ブログ記事の抄訳です。

    人体はなんと神秘的なのでしょうか。歩くというシンプルな動作でさえ、非常に複雑なプロセスです。2本の足の動きを連携させ、どちらかの足が常に地面に接します。その間、脳が信号を出して筋肉の動きを精密に調整します。人体のその他の部分も、このために重要な役割を果たします。

    では、バラバラにならずにどのように全体をまとめているのでしょうか。そのまとめ役を担うのが、関節靱帯です。

    人体に関節が必要なように、製品やサービスにも同等の機能が必要です。コンタクトセンターを例に挙げてみましょう。ルーティング、レポーティング、サードパーティシステムとの接続、データの同期管理と配信、オムニチャネルでの顧客対応管理など、複数のアプリケーションで構成されています。

    コンタクトセンターのすべてのサービスとアプリケーションは連携して機能しなければなりません。そのためには連結部が必要であり、Twilio Syncがその役目を担います。

    Twilio Sync API

    前述した靱帯や関節のように、Twilio Sync APIは他のTwilio APIや機能を接続します。Twilio Syncはアプリケーション間の状態を同期させ、その所要時間はわずか数ミリ秒です。

    多くの企業(ING様など)がTwilio APIを使用し、独自のコンタクトセンターを構築しています。そのほとんどにおいて、Sync APIが他のAPIをつなぐ働きをしています。今ではプログラマブルコンタクトセンターTwilio FlexにおいてFlexユーザーサブスクリプションの一部と …

    The Joints Of The Contact Center: Twilio’s Sync API Sync Joints of the Contact Center Header

    Have you ever thought how fascinating the human body is? Simple activities like walking are such a complicated process. The motion of your two legs is coordinated, so that one foot or the other is always in contact with the ground. While the brain is sending signals to precise the coordination of our muscles. More parts of the body play an important role to make it happen.

    But – how can everything be held together without falling apart? That’s thanks to joints, ligaments, and tendons.

    Just like our body needs joints, any product or service needs its equivalent. For instance, imagine a contact center. It consists of multiple applications for routing, reporting, connecting 3rd party systems, storing and transferring data, managing omnichannel interactions, and so on.

    All of a contact center’s services and applications have to work together. To do that, a connector is needed –Twilio …

    The COVID-19 outbreak has shown us that most organizations were not prepared to deal with a worldwide crisis of this magnitude. Fortunately, we can adapt how we operate and get work done out of an office with technology such as contact centers.

    Working from home is nothing new – the technology to do it has been available for more than 15 years. However, during this new reality, some organizations are now figuring out how to conduct business as usual during these unexpected times, discovering video conferencing, remote team collaboration, and distributed contact centers, among …

    Making Outbound Calls with Twilio Flex flex-making-outbound-calls.png

    Even though contact center technology has drastically changed in the last ten years, contact center leaders still experience challenges with their customer experience systems, including:

    • Inflexible systems: difficulty adding new channels, expanding functionality, or modernizing their existing service.
    • Limited integrations: some solutions force businesses to pick one or two business applications to integrate into their contact center. But in reality, agents struggle to access many systems and deliver first contact resolution.
    • Securing budget: contact center changes and customizations require professional services whose costs vary based on the complexity of the service, timelines, resources, and more.

    This is why Twilio believes the future of contact center technology is programmability.

    What is Programmability?

    Programmability gives customers the option to use code to modify and extend the behavior, user experience, and functionality of Twilio Flex to fit the ongoing needs of their contact center. Twilio Flex uses programmability through …
