At the third annual TwilioCon conference in San Francisco, Twilio and LiveOps announced a strategic alliance in the call center space and their first joint customer, a 500 agent-seat call center provider specializing in order taking for leading U.S. restaurants. The customer chose LiveOps for its integrated multi-channel plus social desktop, LiveOps Engage, and integration with WebRTC powered by Twilio. This 500 seat call center is one of the single largest deployments of WebRTC in its young history.

"WebRTC is no longer part of the 'imagine-if-you-will' contact center of the future, it's now part of today's strategic cloud contact center offerings," said Marty Beard, president and CEO of LiveOps. "Today's news about our first joint customer is just the beginning. The ease of WebRTC combined with the power of LiveOps Engage is enabling contact center decision makers to completely migrate their entire infrastructure to the cloud—contact center plus telephony. This is a powerful value proposition. WebRTC is disrupting the call center industry and we're excited to be leading this disruption."

LiveOps Engage is integrated with Twilio Client with zero downloads. The solution provides a single browser-based agent desktop to further improve usability, increasing productivity and enhancing the customer experience across all channels on a single screen.

LiveOps Engage with WebRTC enables companies to deliver the best in-app calling experience for PCs, mobile phones and tablets. Inbound and outbound calls are routed directly via a web browser, dramatically reducing costs while enhancing agent experience and productivity. The solution also speeds up the time to deploy more cost-effective home-based agent services.

Because of the simplicity and ease of LiveOps' Twilio Client powered WebRTC Engage portal, agents can start answering calls just with a browser and broadband connection without the need for a physical phone and no additional software to purchase or download.

"We're very impressed with the customer experience that LiveOps was able to create with their Engage product," said Twilio CEO and co-founder Jeff Lawson. "We are very proud to help power LiveOps and look forward to the near limitless possibilities of WebRTC development. We can't wait to see what they build next."
