[PODCAST] Acquisitions and Applications: One Year of Success w/ Anand Chandrasekaran pt 2

One positive thing about the pandemic is that it’s accelerated telecommunication solutions - making it possible for many people to work when they weren’t able to before.

Stay-at-home parents. Differently abled folks. People looking to earn some extra income. And, people like me who simply want a flexible work schedule.

This new kind of gig economy makes it possible for call center agents to earn when it works best for them. Plus, when your call center is born in the cloud, it’s super easy for agents to switch it on at home.
