Getting started with Zoom Contact Center (agents)

With Zoom Contact Center, you can manage every aspect of your customer relationship across channels, including video, and across the Zoom platform too. Contact center capabilities will be merged with unified communications capabilities in Zoom Contact Center.

For example, imagine your organization is a software-related company that supports customers in the United States and Canada who use MacBook computers and Windows laptops. The Zoom Contact Center is able to route French speaking customers requesting assistance troubleshooting their Windows client to a technical support agent who is familiar with Windows and can provide them with the assistance they need.
