Virtual Desktops for Call Centers

Many call centers face the problem of accommodating several agents who need to work on a schedule tailored to the actual demand for their services. Still, they lack office space and equipment to handle peak demand. Building a brick-and-mortar call center office requires considerable initial capital expenditure and recurring expenses for commercial real estate and utilities. Organizations must constantly adjust their workforce to provide timely customer support, as call traffic is expected to exceed the number of call center agents. Still, they cannot quickly scale up or down to meet substantial peaks and valleys. Call centers frequently gain or lose contracts due to shifting tasks. As a result, agents must be trained in the methods of the new client while also having their desktops reinstalled because the business software is no longer the same, and it would be impossible to add new software on top of the old.

For IT teams, this is a tedious and time-consuming operation. Despite knowing how many agents they require based on the seasonality of their business, many firms find it challenging to scale up or down the existing desktop infrastructure. Global providers like vDesk.works, Citrix, and Xendesktop offer scalable solutions that address these issues. By providing a solution that can grow with an organization's needs, vDesk.works addresses these issues by enabling companies to deploy large numbers of call center agents who can work either locally or remotely, based on demand rather than the need for office space and equipment designed for peak times.

Benefits of VDI for Call Centers

When it comes to business interruptions, call and contact centers have no room for error. The customer support system must always adhere to agreed-upon service and compliance standards, no matter how many people work remotely or how many broken supply chains. High-demand employees who must work remotely because of an emergency could soon turn into an expensive liability. Employees' operations are run on a virtual machine, isolating them from potential security vulnerabilities on their personal computers.

If a website goes offline, virtual machines can be relaunched at a backup site in just a few clicks, and users can continue working. VDI desktop support can regularly reset to a pristine and clean state at the end of every session, even if malware creeps through. However, any pc or device that connects to a VDI server must first be pre-configured to meet all security criteria. Many security measures can be taken, but there is no guarantee that each remote computer or device adheres to the call center security policy. Despite the safety measures that call centers and their agents need to take while deploying VDI, there are several benefits call center virtualization brings.

Secure and Compliant Environments:

Users' ability to transfer sensitive data, regulated information, cc intellectual property can be limited. vDesk. works' security and compliance features such as built-in firewalls and automated encryption and its secure perimeters, multi-factor authentication (MFA), privilege permissions, and other features prevent call center workers from disclosing confidential client information.

Centralized Management:

Resources can be allocated to business processes instead of managing and supporting endpoint devices and desktops. The time needed to set up or time lost from call disconnections can be reduced, allowing agents to be more productive.

Tailored Experiences:

Delivery, security, and control of applications based on the role, group, or campaign can all be customized.

Application Support:

VoIP softphone integration; MD video compatibility, and other essential apps can all be found right on the cloud desktop, ensuring that agents can stay productive.

Quick Onboarding of Talent Worldwide:

High availability in many regions eliminates service availability and redundancy, with call c enter workers located worldwide. Call center agents, team leaders, and managers in various areas may quickly and easily connect to a secure virtual desktop and begin operating call center apps on their own device, regardless of how old it is or how recently it was purchased.

Overall Savings:

Predictable monthly operating costs can be maintained while avoiding costly hardware renewal cycles, infrastructure overbuying, and capital-intensive in-house deployments.

vDesk. works' VDI can save companies a lot of money and energy, especially if the office has many machines. Call centers can save server hardware costs and indirect costs such as licenses, maintenance, etc. A virtual desktop can save at least 80 percent on energy expenditures.

Desktop virtualization makes it easier to deliver updates, prevents significant failures, and eliminates the need for individual physical computers or office spaces. Each virtual PC is entirely autonomous, and the agents' work environment will not be interrupted in a network failure because all virtual machines are run locally.

With vDesk.works, call centers can reduce costs, swiftly onboard virtual employees, and assure company continuity. vDesk.works' virtual contact center solutions let firms quickly and efficiently deliver secure, standardized desktop or application experiences to call center agents, whether in-house, outsourced, or work from home.

BYOD or low-cost thin client endpoints can scale up or down as needs change quickly. With vDesk, firms can track agent productivity, efficiency, and optimization opportunities on desktop and agent levels.

vDesk.works also has a team of dedicated consultants and IT experts that can assist firms in selecting the best option for their remote working call center operations.
