Webex Contact Center Agent Connection
The Webex Contact Center uses existing endpoints for call delivery. Agent telephones can be any phone or softphone on the public network, with the alternative option of using SIP trunking to integrate the existing telephone system, regardless of manufacturer.
With the Webex Contact Center all customer advisors are remote agents and have access to the same features irrespective of the endpoint. So it makes no difference if the agents are located in the work office or at home. All the features of automatic call distribution (ACD) are the same for all agents. Supervisors can continue to monitor and record agents’ calls.
The only equipment required is:
- A PC with internet access
- A supported browser such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge
- An addressable telephone number
Webex Contact Center Agent Desktop
The features of the agent desktop include:
- Support for voice, email, social media (incl. Facebook Messenger, SMS, etc.) and web chat channels
- Automatic screen-pop features in customer-specific applications or CRM systems to increase agent productivity
- Agent performance statistics to assess performance over the course of a day or longer periods
- Call recording controls

- Follow-up contact via WebRTC video calls between customer and agent (optional)
Webex Contact Center CRM Integrations
The Webex Contact Center has pre-built connectors that enable integration with several industry-leading CRM systems including Salesforce, ServiceNow, SAP and Microsoft Dynamics. As part of this integration, data about the customer and the context of the call are delivered to the agent in an automatic pop-up window. The Webex Contact Center also logs the interaction within the CRM application to keep a record of the inbound call. The integration enables click-to-dial from within CRM applications, allowing the agent to click on a telephone number to ring the customer. The outbound call is then automatically logged against the number dialled. The CRM connectors provide CTI integration between the Webex Contact Center ACD and the client’s CRM tool. The toolset provides:
- Agent status control
- Call control
- CRM contact click-to-dial
- Pop-ups activated by automatic number identification (ANI) or call variables
- Receipt of inbound calls
- Placing of outbound calls (click-to-dial) from within the CRM
- Automatic customer record display in CRM
- Automatic call logging in CRM
- Agent control of call recording
Cisco Webex Contact Center Follow-Up Grounds
Administrators can create follow-up grounds to log the reason for the call. This is used to assess why customers have called.
Not available or logout grounds
The grounds are customizable and can be used to log any agent activity that is not contact related, for example by selecting "Meeting" to signal that an agent is not available. This allows supervisors to closely monitor agent availability.
The grounds can be viewed in real-time and historic reports.
Webex Contact Center Call Recording
The module for call recording allows authorized users to record calls and create recording schedules. It allows supervisors or administrators to determine a recording schedule for each queue. Recording can be restricted at location, team and agent levels and there is flexibility to decide whether all or just a set percentage of calls will be recorded.
- The recording schedule also provides the option to pause recording for a certain period if sensitive information is to be shared.
- The recording feature is a jukebox-type application which gives supervisors access to recordings filtered by queues, locations, teams and agents.
- The application allows recordings to be tagged with customized labels, which significantly reduces search time.
- It also has an advanced search option that enables users to search for recordings by caller data (CAD variables), call attributes such as Dialed Number Identification Service (DNIS), Automatic Number Identification (ANI), session ID, recording duration and their own customized attributes.
Users can choose between two different recording options:
- Compliance call logging
- Percentage call recording
The compliance call logging option records all calls handled by a specific queue. This setting is useful for clients who need to record 100% of calls for compliance purposes. The percentage call recording option allows clients to record a proportion of the calls handled. This enables administrators to spot check the quality of calls across the whole company or carry out targeted quality monitoring for specific agents, teams or call centre locations. Calls to be recorded can be:
- Randomly selected by the system on a percentage basis
- Scheduled by time and/or day
- Selected according to criteria such as the location, team or agent the call is routed to
The recordings are stored on the recording portal, which allows them to be archived and retrieved.
Webex Contact Center Management Portal
The Webex Contact Center Management Portal provides administrators and supervisors with web-based tools for real-time end-to-end management of their contact centres. Users can:
- Set up flexible routing strategies for all contact channels.
- Use web-based flow editors (low-code/no-code). These support the administrator or supervisor with call flow configuration.
- Integrate any necessary surrounding systems with contact distribution via open REST web-service requests.
- Assign agents to queues using skill-based routing.
- Monitor performance in real time via dashboards and call monitoring.
- Access historical reporting and analytics to track customer trends.
Webex Contact Center Routing Type Options
The Webex Contact Center offers a wide range of routing options to meet a variety of different call centre requirements. The routing options include:
- Routing of contacts via a group to the longest available agent
- Skill-based routing: This option helps contact centres manage agent skill sets at a granular level to optimize call routing strategies. Agents can be assigned multiple skills and skill types. Agent skills can be defined as:
- A competency rating from 1 to 10
- A "True" or "False" value
- Inbound contacts are routed to the agent who has been available for the longest time.
Webex Contact Center Monitoring Features (call monitoring, coaching and barge-in)
Monitoring features, including monitoring, coaching and barge-in are Supervisor Desktop features. Supervisors can use the real-time dashboard to view the latest contact and agent statuses. A web-based dashboard provides a centralized point for managing and monitoring calls and contacts. Supervisors have a real-time overview of call volumes and agent activity across all locations. Call centre managers have the tools and information to measure and manage the distributed contact centre activities in real time. The queue status and the contacts waiting in the queue are displayed on the supervisor application. The call monitoring feature enables supervisors to access calls handled by the teams they manage and to listen to conversations. This can be done without the agent knowing (silent monitoring). The supervisor can listen to or barge in on the conversation at any time. The call monitoring feature offers a number of flexible options to provide the flexibility that supervisors need. Monitoring can be continuous, one-off, or scheduled. A combination of one or more queues, locations, teams, and agents can be specified for the creation of a monitoring schedule, or supervisors can choose to monitor a session in real time. Supervisors also can change the qualification profile (skill profile) of an agent in real time. This feature gives supervisors tactical tools to manage their agent teams and support contact centre management objectives.
Voice Connectivity Options
In total there are 3 different options for integrating PSTN with the Webex Contact Center:
- On-premise or cloud SBCs using an SIP-PBX or UC solution provided by the client.
- Webex Calling as a UC solution for agents using a cloud-connected PSTN. You can find a list of supported providers here.
- Use of Webex Calling to connect with the WxCC cloud via a local gateway.
Usually a company would opt for a single, uniform voice connection option. However, depending on the requirements and/or national legislation, it is possible to use different options for different countries.
Option 1: On-premise/cloud SBCs with the client’s own telephone system
Where it is not possible to utilize a direct connection between the PSTN/SIP provider and the Webex platform, it is possible to use the client’s own gateways or a cloud SBC which is connected directly to the Webex Contact Center platform via secure SIP trunks. These gateways can either be hosted on the client’s premises or on any cloud. The gateways function as ingress gateways for all inbound calls to the Contact Center and as egress gateways for all calls to the PSTN, so the client’s carriers establish a connection there. With this option the agents work in a UC environment provided by the client, which could be a Cisco UC solution, a Microsoft Teams solution with a direct routing option or another on-premise or cloud telephone system. If the UC solution is directly connected to the same gateway as the Webex Contact Center platform’s SIP trunk, there are usually no additional charges for calls within Webex, and the agents and client can fully utilize the benefits provided by their existing PSTN/SIP contracts.
In some countries this setup (using local/country-specific gateways) is required by law, for example if a network operator is only permitted to connect calls that have originated in the same country. More complex setups may be necessary if calls are to be recorded and national legislation prohibits the transfer of recordings to another country. If the local carrier still uses traditional ISDN/PSTN technology, the gateway must act as the SBC for the Webex Contact Center platform, which only supports SIP.
With Option 1 we have the possibility of creating a “follow the sun” contact centre with an SBC.
Option 2: Webex Calling with cloud-connected PSTN
It is possible to use the Webex Contact Center together with Webex Calling, a high-performance cloud UC solution from Cisco. It routes all contact centre-related calls from and to the PSTN to the Webex Contact Center.
Option 3: Webex Calling with local SBCs provided by the client
Another way in which agents can use Webex Calling for UC is to connect the client’s own SBCs with the Webex platform either locally or via a dedicated SIP trunk.
This setup can be preferable if the local contact centre does not use any other UC/PBX solution and has public telephone network contracts in place with local network operators. If the local network operator still uses traditional ISDN/PSTN technology, the gateway must act as the SBC for the Webex Contact Center platform, which only supports SIP.
