What is SAP CIC?
The SAP Customer Interaction Center (CIC) is an intelligent interface that facilitates direct contact between customers and call center agents, offering availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, in six different locations across the globe.
The CIC is a critical part of the SAP Support Portal, offering critical communication and connection features to assist with non-technical queries. It provides a central point of contact for customers and partners and facilitates connections for external telephone systems to improve the incident creation process and accelerate response times.
Understanding the Need for SAP Customer Interaction Center
The Customer Interaction Center application offers an easily customizable architecture and intelligent call center functionality to enable customer service organizations to process inbound and outbound telephone calls from SAP customers and partners.
By supporting complex processing functions and visualizations for extensive call logs, CIC allows organizations to process any business transaction seamlessly and provide technical and non-technical assistance whenever and wherever needed.
Support from CIC’s customizable design and Action Box and Business Data Display features enable more efficient processing for inbound and outbound calls, enhance productivity for agents and other CIC experts, and allow for the personalization of agent skills and business processes.
