Agent Experience Five9

Empower your team to provide exceptional student engagement.

Your higher education contact centre or call centre services team may be staffed by professionals or part-time students. The key to your team's communication and success is keeping them focused on the student, parent, or alumni graduates and quickly engaging them for recruiting, assistance, or fundraising without the distraction of switching between applications or answer searching.
