Customer Interaction Center for the Contact Center

Manage the service experience on a single-platform.

​Customers expect nothing less than service excellence when they contact you. In fact, they deserve the most efficient and knowledgeable experience you can give them. With the Customer Interaction Center™ (CIC) from Interactive Intelligence, you deliver an exceptional experience to every customer you serve.

One platform to manage the service experience

CIC gives your contact center a standards-based, multichannel software platform to blend all media types with your business systems. Real time and historical information organize the service experience in a seamless and expedient manner. Enable CIC’s powerful IP communications alongside existing resources and new technologies, and interaction processing power becomes even greater.

Features to improve operational performance

Ultimately, CIC’s suite of integrated contact center applications brings interaction processes and customer service best practices together. And when needed, scale to advanced functionality via CIC’s simple application licensing.
