What is SAP Contact Center ?


SAP Contact Center links communications with the appropriate business context by networking with other SAP and non-SAP business solutions and collaboration tools. This helps organizations improve customer service, streamline business processes, decrease human latency and increase agility

SAP Contact Center software can help you seamlessly queue, prioritize, and route customer contacts.


This is to optimize contact center operations, provide fast access to problem solvers – and embed multi channel communications in SAP Customer Engagement and Commerce applications.
