BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Verizon (NYSE: VZ) debuts Contact Center Hub, a new, cloud-based solution that will provide small and medium businesses (SMBs) with a simple to deploy option for building and running contact centers. Contact Center Hub enables a business to reach customers in new ways and expand its customer base with increased direct digital and voice communications, using a simple and seamless user experience that natively integrates with leading business applications.

With Contact Center Hub, Verizon makes it easy for small businesses to provide paramount customer support experiences to their customers.”

It provides multichannel support for voice and SMS text messaging, with plug-ins to over 60 leading CRMs and help desk applications. Contact Center Hub allows customer service organizations to build interactive voice response menus and smart routing rules to direct callers to the right agent. Agents can collaborate on calls through a shared inbox, apply tags or comments, and assign follow-ups to specific teammates.

Ken Landoline, Omdia Principal Analyst, Customer Engagement stated about Contact Center Hub, “It's an especially difficult time for small and medium-sized businesses right now, and it's imperative they keep their customers engaged and cared for. Likewise, end-customers want easy ways to connect with SMBs.
