Altivon, an IP-based communications solutions provider, has announced that American Advisors Group has purchased Customer Interaction Center, an all-in-one IP communications software suite developed by Interactive Intelligence.

AAG offers reverse mortgages to seniors nationwide and runs national television advertising campaigns that generate a high number of phone calls. It is important for AAG that these calls must be handled quickly by the right representatives.
The Interactive Intelligence software suite, Customer Interaction Center (CIC), includes multichannel recording, skills-based routing and other features.
