Seamless Call Routing

This cloud-to-cloud integration, which features direct network peering over a private network, allows calls to be effortlessly moved between Zoom Phone and Five9. This is achieved without incurring additional toll charges.

  • Calls to a company’s general number can be automatically redirected to the contact center by a simple routing instruction in the Zoom auto attendant that sends the call to the Five9 IVR;
  • Calls requiring contact center personnel can be directed to correct skill groups.
  • Calls to a 1-800 number can be redirected to a specialist workgroup that is not part of the contact center, through a transfer from Five9 to Zoom Phone.
  • Five9 contact center agents can engage with back-office experts who are using Zoom Phone. The agent can consult with experts, conference them in, or transfer the call.
