While this continues to grow, it makes sense for companies to implement a remote contact center as life is full of surprises. Whether it's a fire, flood, snowstorm, or any other situation out of your control – having the flexibility of remote agents allows business to continue on as usual. In fact, our customer base has some programs that allow a portion of agents to work from home.Remote work has certainly become popular and is hard to argue against the logistical benefits of working from home - for example, cutting out commute time and costs.

The technology behind each agent is equally important.

With just a headset and a reliable internet connection, agents are empowered to maintain a better work-life balance, stay connected, and get the job done.To learn more about our Five9 services, click here.
