Pega Call provides robust computer telephony integration (CTI) support for Pega Sales Automation users, including click-to-dial functionality for outgoing calls and adaptive screen pops for incoming calls.
Defining computer telephony integration requirements
Plan the connectivity to your telephony infrastructure by defining the computer telephony integration (CTI) requirements.
- Understand which telephony vendor that your site uses.
- Review the Pega Call CTI Implementation materials to understand the configuration for your vendor.
- Meet with the technical resources responsible for configuration and maintenance of the Contact Center Telephony and CTI infrastructure at your site to get an understanding of the current configuration and desired call flows and customer experience. Ensure that a resource from the telephony team is available to work with the implementation team.
- Share the information related to the way Pega Call gets connected to the CTI environment with the telephony expert. The telephony expert is required to configure the CTI environment to allow Pega Call to connect and share the configuration details with the Pega Call implementation team.
