Calabrio Renames Its Unified Interaction Suite

March 17, 2008

Workforce optimization and unified desktop software provider Calabrio (News - Alert), Inc. today announced a new architectural direction for its software that will be built in an Enterprise 2.0 framework. According to the company, the new approach is expected to help improve business process integration by providing unified, flexible views of customer interaction, workforce optimization, performance management and analytics activities within the contact center. To reflect the new direction, the company has chosen Calabrio One as the new name of the suite of products formerly known as the Calabrio Unified Interaction Suite.

Calabrio also announced new product versions and feature enhancements within the Calabrio One suite, including enhanced graphical reports, knowledge worker support and strategic planning capabilities. In addition, the company announced pre-defined desktop integration approaches between Cisco (News - Alert) Agent Desktop and three popular CRM applications: salesforce.com’s Salesforce CRM, Oracle's Siebel Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Microsoft (News - Alert) Dynamics CRM. The integrations facilitate screen pops and automated workflows between the CRM applications and Cisco Agent Desktop, which Calabrio distributes through an OEM relationship with Cisco.

“Satisfying customer demands while meeting business objectives is tough enough. Contact center personnel should not have to struggle with their daily tools to interact with the customer, collaborate with team members, and keep their performance on track,” said Paul Lidsky (News - Alert), CEO of Calabrio, Inc. “These product improvements further our mission to enhance and streamline the right set of tools into a single view of the daily activities and performance metrics that are appropriate for each individual user.”

Calabrio is re-naming its Unified Interaction Suite Calabrio One to reflect the new architectural approach that will integrate a variety of applications into one framework. Calabrio customers can now create forecasts, generate work schedules, measure quality and efficiency, access reports and alerts, and collaborate within their teams to impact performance in real time — all from a common desktop. In a move toward further streamlining those business processes and providing one single view of the customer and each user’s activities, Calabrio is re-architecting these capabilities as services within the contact center. Calabrio One will present the appropriate services to each user’s desktop based on their specified role, such as agent, supervisor, evaluator, manager, executive or knowledge worker.
