ST. LOUIS (September 27, 2017) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it is demonstrating its new Clarity Connect contact center solution and customer relationship management integration during Microsoft Ignite 2017, continuing through Sept. 29 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
Clarity Connect provides Microsoft customers with a quality cloud contact center solution developed exclusively for Microsoft Skype for Business that works with Office 365 to help organizations extend their platform investments and deliver better customer care. Skype for Business combines voice, instant messaging, audio, video, and web conferencing into a richer, more simplified solution that improves business collaboration and engagement.
Perficient’s new native integration, Clarity Connect for Salesforce, extends the platform’s functionality to Salesforce customers, allowing them to take full advantage of the communication and collaboration features of Skype for Business and Office 365, as well as leverage Salesforce for a unified view of information during conversations with customers.
Microsoft Ignite is Microsoft’s largest and most comprehensive event, with more than 20,000 technology professionals and enterprise developers expected to attend, including experts in Microsoft Azure, Office 365, SharePoint, and Skype for Business.
Perficient is demonstrating Clarity Connect for Salesforce throughout Microsoft Ignite at booth No. 1035. Experts there are also discussing the company’s approach to digital transformation – a holistic approach to modernizing every aspect of an organization. From strategy to operations, technology to culture, digital transformation requires businesses to rethink how they deliver value to their customers.
