Integration via APIs For Complete Customisation

Softdial Contact Center™ (SCC) is and always has been modular in nature. The elements of the solution that make up the product make use of a comprehensive API library that allows them to communicate between each other.

This library is available to integrators who wish to integrate elements of Sytel’s product within their own solution. This provides the ability to ‘swap-out’ components and replace them with integrations to other applications.

Softdial Contact Center™ (SCC) has a number of ready-to-go integrations with industry-standard technologies.

Reasons you might want to ‘swap out’

Examples of where a reseller or end customers might want to replace the existing applications are:

  • Providing a custom recordings interface that filters recordings based on data from another application perhaps using a different UI. This can be achieved easily by using the Recording Monitor Web API to retrieve recordings.
  • Integrating a CRM solution so that when a call or chat is connected to an agent, the CRM application ‘screen-pops’ to the end user data that relates to the connected call such as the caller’s name and account details.

The diagram demonstrates the ease of integrating via APIs by swapping apps ‘in and out’.

How Sytel’s modular components can be ‘swapped out’

SCC’s APIs for integration partners

Watch Sytel’s Pre-Sales Manager, Patrick Bosworth, demonstrate how a complete custom contact center product can be built around Sytel’s suite by exploiting our API.

Softdial Contact Center™ version 11 - Designed for Integration
Sytel divides the different elements of the application into layers. For each layer, by simply calling a URL a 3rd party application can interact with SCC and perform tasks such as:

Management layer

  • Creating an agent, setting properties for the agent
  • Uploading and defining recordings to be used within IVRs

Agent layer

  • Logging in an agent to make them active in a campaign or queue
  • Getting the state of an agent
  • Notify an agent’s desktop application of a connected call

Campaign layer

  • Defining a campaign (a list of numbers used for outbound calling or inbound lookups)
  • Starting an outbound calling campaign

Sytel’s API-first approach makes it easy for CCaaS providers like us to extend and customise. Of course, the platform itself is a great solution, but not being tied into purchasing a vendors’ own add-ons has given our customers the freedom (and us the ability) to pick and choose the absolute best apps for their business.

Sytel provides access to the entire platform though HTTP/HTTPS APIs. Developers familiar with web technologies can easily interact with the Sytel platform.
