3CLogic provides a cloud based contact center solution that integrates with any CRM of customer’s choice. The resulting integration between customer’s CRM system and 3CLogic’s cloud based telephony system eliminates the need for a separate PBX or phone system. Customer service representatives and sales representatives don’t have to enter information in multiple systems or switch among multiple tabs or screens during their customer interactions.
3CLogic provides a complete contact center solution from the cloud that includes inbound, outbound, and blended capabilities. Extensive management and performance reporting and call recording features make it a very attractive solution for any contact center that is planning to switch to a cloud based platform or has an older generation hosted call center platform based on centralized servers.
3CLogic offers a cloud based contact center platform that has connectors to integrate with CRM systems. As part of our customer on-boarding process, we use these connectors to integrate with any CRM system that the customer has. The basic integration is included in the setup fee. 3CLogic charges additional fees only for advanced integration or customized integration.
All you have to do is talk to one of our Account Executives and let them know a few things about your business, the CRM system that you are using, and how many reps would be using the system in the first month. Your Account Executive will sign you up and assign a project manager to your account who will work collaboratively with you and your team to ensure a smooth installation. On the kick off call with your project manager, he/she will gather any additional requirements that you may have, configure your cloud based contact center, and train your team to manage the contact center on an ongoing basis.
Nothing really! As long as you have reps who are ready to get on phones, and you have PCs with headsets and Internet connectivity, you have everything you need to start leveraging the benefits of a cloud based contact center. Please review the PC and Internet bandwidth requirements here.
The reports are available from anywhere the supervisor has internet connection and an internet browser.

Yes, even though we do not require a long term contract and your commitment is month to month, many people want to have the comfort of taking the system for a test drive. We will open a trial account for you and let you become familiar with the system. We will also assign a project manager to your account, who will walk you through a step-by-step process so that you get the most out of your trial. Since we expect that you will be receiving and making live calls during the trial phase, we have to provision toll free and long distance carrier services so as to ensure a successful trial. As a result, we ask that you pay for the trial period with a guarantee that you will be refunded any unused portion of your telecom charges should you decide to discontinue the service.

We host our solution on Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS offers a complete set of infrastructure and application services that enable you to run virtually everything in the cloud: from your inbound and outbound service to all the contact center performance and management reports. AWS is a secure, durable technology platform with industry-recognized certifications and audits: PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate, HIPAA, and SAS 70 Type II. AWS services and data centers have multiple layers of operational and physical security to ensure the integrity and safety of your data. Instead of waiting weeks or months for hardware and software, you can instantly deploy a new contact center, instantly scale up as your workload grows, and instantly scale down based on demand. Whether you need a few contact center seats or thousands, whether you need them for a few weeks or for a few months, you still only pay for what you use. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business.
Since all telephony related functions and triggers are executed on the rep’s desktop, sensitive and confidential data does not have to travel over the public Internet or stored in the cloud. All your sensitive data including call recordings can reside on your local servers, and as the call progresses, the confidential data on your servers is pulled in at call connect time along with data in the cloud to present a unified view to the rep. Confidential data such as social security numbers and credit card numbers never leave your premise. Using as little information as a customer’s incoming phone number, confidential data is retrieved from the local servers, and combined with data in the cloud that is retrieved using a secure https connection to be presented to the rep. 3CLogic also provides the ability to dynamically stop call recording when the rep is executing a credit card transaction and restart the recording once the rep is done with taking the credit card information.

Option 1: Call recordings take place on the rep’s desktop and are stored on your local server. At the end of the call, recording for that call is transferred from the rep’s desktop to your local server. Note that none of the call recordings leave your premise. This is different than other centralized call center platforms which record calls centrally and then store them either in the cloud or transfer them to a server on your premise over the public internet.

Option 2: Call recordings still take place on the rep’s desktop. At the end of every call, the recording is uploaded to the cloud using a secure https connection. You have the option of saving the recordings in the cloud. In either case, recording for any call can be retrieved instantly from 3CLogic’s management portal by clicking on a hyperlink.

V-TAG or Virtual Telephony Application Grid is 3CLogic's innovative architecture for providing distributed voice/telephony services from the cloud. V-TAG means more than just a new way to communicate through a distributed architecture. V-TAG represents a cutting edge architecture and technology used by hundreds of contact centers to connect with their customers globally. The distributed V-TAG architecture transmits voice traffic directly from the reps’ PCs to the carrier. In traditional contact center services, voice traffic has to travel through centralized media servers, lowering reliability, stability, and scalability. V-TAG is virtual because it's not tethered to any physical environment or computational platform. V-TAG can be leveraged in a public cloud, private cloud, or a hybrid cloud. V-TAG serves telephony applications to contact center users. Examples of such applications are ACDs, call queues, Auto-dialers, IVRs, conferencing bridges, skilled agent handling and media-processing.
V-TAG provides several advantages over other monolithic call center applications. V-TAG makes your contact center:

a) Adaptable: Add/delete/configure contact center applications as per changing business requirements.

b) Scalable: Add/Delete seats and other resources as per business demand.

c) Fault-Tolerant: No single point of failure. Problem with one PC does not impact the rest of the call center. Run redundant instances of your projects and call centers to handle network and server failures.

d) Secure: Keep all your sensitive and confidential data localized on your premise. Using V-TAG’s “tokenization” technology, combine cloud based information with your local data that is confidential and present a unified screen to your reps and agents.

And then there are 3CLogic's rich web based tools to create, configure, deploy, monitor and troubleshoot your contact center applications running under V-TAG. With V-TAG, all contact center applications talk to a web-services based management layer to provide a rich set of management functions.

3CLogic offers its own IVR and can also integrate with other SIP based IVRs.
3CLogic provides an online graphical user interface to configure and manage your IVR tree and rules. You have complete control over when you want to make changes or redesign the IVR tree and rules. Unlike other solutions, you don’t have to submit requests and wait for someone to make changes to your IVR.
Yes, you can use your own VoIP carrier for termination and origination. Please allow a minimum of five working days to do integration and testing of the 3CLogic system with the VoIP carrier of your choice. There may be additional fees involved. Please check with your Account Representative for details.
While 3CLogic is a VoIP application based on SIP, you can use your existing trunks that you may already have from your carrier. A VoIP Media Gateway will have to be installed at your site so that these trunks can interoperate with the 3CLogic system which is completely SIP based. For a list of Media Gateways that 3CLogic interoperates with, please contact your Account Representative.
The system is hosted in a redundant configuration in a secured hosting facility on Amazon Web Services. In case of a failure, redundant servers in an alternate availability zone take over the functions of the primary system. The redundant servers are distributed geographically in different availability zones to protect from Amazon Web Services’ outages.
