Present a more professional face to your customers, by increasing the efficiency and productivity of receptionists and operators who handle a high volume of calls
Make every call count
Your employees are the foundation for the success of your business. They provide the empathetic contact that fuels customer engagement, satisfaction and loyalty.
Automated answering technologies provide vital efficiencies in reducing wait times in high-volume calling environments. Yet, the role of the receptionist has never been in more demand, as businesses continue to value the primal power of human interaction.
Flexible answering for a hybrid-work world
Traditional receptionist solutions tend to be location-based and require a dedicated console and specialized operator skills to manage.
In today’s increasingly hybrid and flexible working environment with distributed workforces and remote staff, it has become more challenging to maintain call handling efficiency and service consistency.
Front your business with the best people
8×8 Frontdesk is a new role-based experience within the widely-deployed 8×8 Work app, with a full-screen operator panel that provides instant access to enhanced call handling capabilities.
The intuitive drag-and-drop design enables any activated user to assume the guise of receptionist with minimal prior training. That means that you can assign your best talent to the front- line of your business – anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
By personalizing every first contact, with 8×8 Frontdesk, your callers can always expect a great reception.
