Every day, companies aim to help their customers realize the most value from their products and services. They do this by providing effective service through automated self-service and human assistance with customer service agents. Brands recognize the value of using AI across their omnichannel communication to ensure continuous improvement as well as prompt effective automated and human responses that better serve customers.


Azure Communication Services is Microsoft's intelligent B2C communication platform offering agent-to-customer and automated communication API/SDKs for independent software vendors (ISVs) to engineer within their customer service offerings. Today we have great news to share; Anywhere365 incorporates Azure Communication Services into its cloud contact center offering alongside integration with Microsoft Teams. The outcome of this helps businesses achieve more with AI-powered intelligent B2C communication solutions.

Anywhere365 has integrated Azure Communication Services to power their Dialogue Cloud platform. Incoming calls to the platform are managed by Azure Communication Services Call Automation API, which answers calls, plays audio prompts, and collects audio streams. Calls can then be directed to the appropriate agents based on their availability, using Microsoft Teams or the custom-built Anywhere365 WebAgent. Azure Communication Services also enables audio transcription in real-time using Azure AI services along with Azure OpenAI Models to generate conversation summaries for post-call analysis. Finally, Anywhere365’s Dialogue Studio allows rapid deployment and integration with Microsoft Copilot Studio.


We are excited about Anywhere365's advancements using Microsoft technology which also includes an embedded contact center within Teams for omnichannel communication that integrates with identify services for secure communication.
