Client Setup Questions

Please note: The University IT Communication Services team is transitioning groups across Stanford from the existing Avaya Call Center solution to the new Cisco Contact Center Platform in a multi-year project that will implement more modern technology at hundreds of call centers across Stanford and the hospitals. This page will soon be updated with more relevant information. Visit the following page to learn more about the project

When clients show interest in pursing a contact center solutions service, the following questionnaire assists the client with crucial decision points that help design their department's call flow based on their input. The client's input results in the design of the specification template sheet that both the client consultant refers to and submits for activation by the Systems Engineering group on the system of the telephone switch.
