Considerations When Building a Call Center Phone Architecture

Setting up a call center for the first time or even the 10th takes a lot of work and equipment, but once it is finished, you can have complete control over your call center operations. If you are building up from scratch, then there are many things you need to start considering, like hardware, software and monitoring employees. However, once you know everything, it won’t seem as large or as scary.


Getting the proper hardware is essential to properly managing your call center. You need phones, computers, servers and cables to connect everything.

Within this area, there are two big considerations you need to make. First, the phone system. There are VoIP and analog phone systems available. VoIP, which is transferred over the Internet, is often considered the best. It has lower i call rates, better call quality and a host of features. When considering phone systems, you should contact only the best vendors.


Aside from using phones, your employees will actively be using the computer and accessing software to help with their jobs. When getting software, make sure you check all the features. You will probably need some specialized tools for your industry, and you should check the program for these features. You should also ensure that the program is powerful enough to work with all your employees without stalling.
