We made a breakthrough in call center automation solutions. As a result, we established a single-window communication system where the VoIP phone system can be seamlessly integrated with any CRM. Among other benefits, the system is very easy to setup and use. In 2016 we focused on integration with 2600hz’s cloud unified communications technology — Kazoo UC platform, and started developing custom apps for its Apps Exchange, including our innovative contact center management solutions.
Being a recognized solution provider for the financial industry, this year we had some notable achievements. Velvetech developed several investment portfolio management and capital markets trading apps. We also worked on hardware acceleration technologies for financial services companies.
