Let’s dive a little deeper into each of the benefits of InGenius Connect, as well as who is a good fit for this product.

Simpler to Administer

Accessing InGenius Connect is more simple than ever before. Using CRM SSO, Administrators simply sign on to their Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform and access the InGenius Admin console. From there, you can manage user permissions, create groups with related access privileges, and manage your CTI settings – such as reconfiguring speed dial buttons or updating call log templates. With the Admin UI directly in your CRM, you can use and manage InGenius CTI in the flow of work and without having to hop between multiple applications or browser windows.

Scalable Without Servers

Cloud-based telephony allows scaling without any on-premise servers at all. You are only limited by the scalability of the CRM and telephony providers themselves.

InGenius Connect Telephony Gateways have a handling capacity 4x that of InGenius Connector Enterprise servers, allowing businesses to CTI-enable more of their agents without additional infrastructure and resource management.

Secure Outside the Firewall

Since InGenius Connect is hosted from within the CRM, InGenius is fully integrated into the CRM security model. All communication is through secure protocols (TLS and HTTPS) and PII stays within your CRM environment. Agents using cloud-based telephony can handle calls safely and securely without having to worry about VPN connections.

Flexible and Hybrid Telephony Options

Whether you are running an on-premise business phone system or a cloud solution, have a single telephony provider or work with multiple, InGenius Connect has you covered. This ultra-flexible product is designed to run varied telephony from a single instance. As cloud adoption takes off, many customers are using InGenius Connect to trial new hosted solutions and slowly transition users from old to new, without causing disruptions or outages. Maintain your unique mix of telephony platforms that keep your business running while delivering a stellar agent experience.
