Engage on their Digital turf

Students tend to be ‘digital natives’ so engaging with them on channels such as video, email, SMS, webchat, social and messaging platforms, like WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter, is both effective and highly efficient. Layering self service options such as IVR and chatbot brings additional cost savings.

Cirrus seamlessly blends automation and human interaction, gathering all communications across any channel in a single view. With full history and contact information at their fingertips, agents can understand and respond quickly to enquires, making the process more productive and a better experience.

Even better, our solution is truly modular, so you can take the channels you need when you need them.

Got Teams?

Cirrus integrates with any unified communications solution, and Microsoft Teams is no exception. As a native application within Teams, Cirrus provides a solution that communicates with all your digital channels within a familiar environment.

Why? Well, not only can you utilise your investment in Teams, but agents have a single screen for both their contact centre work and collaboration with subject experts. Chat, screen-share, video and effortless transfer of calls across departments eliminates lost time jumping between apps and improves first contact resolution.

Prioritise and pre qualify with automation

Students get frustrated if they constantly repeat themselves and being passed around from department to department. It’s tedious, costly, and time-consuming for your teams.

So why not take advantage of our Conversational AI to handle the simpler enquiries like “when does my course start?” and “Where is my psychology course located?”.

Pair our conversational AI with automation to prioritise and pre qualify student interactions so the most appropriate person can deal with them improving that all important ”first contact resolution”.
