It has integrated with the contact center as a service (CCaaS) solutions leaders like Genesys® and NICE inContact serving to its customers. The number of employees has doubled from the past year and still looking for employees in the upcoming months.
According to Paul Weber, a member of Textel’s board of directors and Venture partner in Cultivation Capital, Contact centers are continuously searching for methods for reducing the call volumes and increasing efficiency. Textel has better tools to improve overall customer experience and its texting platforms provide a better channel for communications as well. They are excited about the simplification yet maintaining an impactful way of connecting businesses to its customers.
Textel can divert the incoming message to an available SMS-proficient agent with a chat window that can text back. It works smoothly in NICE inContact and Genesys environments. It can also outbound text on an ad hoc query basis or event basis.
Mr. James Diel, CEO, and Founder of Textel mentioned that with this round of funding we will be able to create a feature-rich texting platform. We are prepared to get the customers that need it and Contact centers that are expecting it.
