Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Contact center vendors that want to guarantee to their customers that their solution “provides the quality, compatibility, and reliability they expect from Microsoft solutions" (Microsoft) can participate in the Connected Contact Center for Microsoft Teams Certification Program.

ComputerTalk is one of Microsoft's first partners to have completed the certification program. With rigorous security and compliance testing, the Connected Contact Center for Microsoft Teams Certification Program ensures that ice Contact Center is reliable, high-quality, and a compatible Microsoft solution that customers can trust.

The Connected Contact Center for Microsoft Teams Certification Program enables 3 models of integration: Connect, Extend, and Power. Under the Connect model, Teams can be used to identify whether subject matter experts (SMEs) are available and to receive call transfers.

Under the Extend model, contact centers are integrated with Microsoft Teams using the Teams client platform, Teams Graph APIs, and the Cloud Communications API in Microsoft Graph. One key difference between the Connect model and the Extend model is that the agent’s experience is much more Teams-based in the Extend model:

  • Teams is the primary calling endpoint.
  • The Teams client can be used for call controls.
  • Agents’ chat and collaboration experiences are integrated with the Teams client.

  • Under the Power model, contact center providers use Teams calling infrastructure to create native Azure-based voice applications. While the SDK for the Power model is still to come, the ultimate goal of the model is to provide a total contact center experience in one app, on one screen.

    ComputerTalk leverages both the Connect and Extend models. These two models offer a close integration with Teams while retaining the advanced enterprise-class features and functionalities that clients depend on.

    ice is a Microsoft Teams certified contact center that extends the user experience natively within Teams to drive collaboration, deliver complex routing, and enable configurable designs to enhance customer experiences. As an all-in-one solution, ice does not require users to switch back and forth between third-party applications to gather customer information. It utilizes Teams as a single source to interact with end customers.

    ice Contact Center retains enterprise-class capabilities, while agents and subject matter experts (SMEs) can handle all multimedia interactions and administrators can access monitoring and reporting tools within the Microsoft Teams client. A Teams certified contact center allows organizations to meet complex needs that Teams alone cannot meet, while still leveraging the Teams platform.

    ComputerTalk offers 3 user interfaces to accommodate your personalized needs – a thin stand-alone toolbar, a web version, and a native Microsoft Teams interface. Learn more about each interfaces.

    Yes, ComputerTalk offers Microsoft Direct Routing through our solution, Direct Connect. Direct Connect provides organizations with an alternative to Microsoft Teams Federation. It uses Microsoft Teams Direct Routing to enable calls to be routed to Teams-based agents using a managed SBC network. Additionally, Direct Connect has a faster call setup time than Federation.
