News : Google Enters Call Centre Business with Avaya-equipped Chromebooks
Jan 5, 2015 -- Avaya has given Google's Chromebook a significant boost with dedicated software that allows the notebooks to double as secure remote call-centre agent terminals.
The company has developed special software using web real time communications (WebRTC) to enable direct audio, video and data communication between browsers.
It worked closely with Google to deploy its agent software on all Chrome devices in what was deemed "an initial project". The collaboration would give Google an early understanding of the expanding international market of call centres.
