Enghouse Interactive (, developer of a comprehensive portfolio of unified communications (UC) and contact centre solutions, today announced that Enghouse Interactive Communications Centre (EICC) now supports Skype for Business (SFB) 2015, providing a full omni-channel contact centre experience.

EICC and SFB can be operated in any combination of on-premise or hosted configurations. Enghouse Interactive’s award-winning contact centre software continues to fully leverage native integration to Skype for Business, utilising Microsoft-endorsed APIs and trusted conferences.

Enghouse Interactive’s expansive portfolio of contact centre and customer interaction solutions lead the market with advanced functionality, such as UC queuing, integrated presence, and present the most powerful UC integrated contact centre offering. Enghouse Interactive Communications Center (EICC), which is native to the SFB environment, empowers agents with screenpops and the ability to dial from Microsoft Dynamics CRM – right out of the box.

EICC also operates with Microsoft Office 365, allowing cloud provided interactions, such as email, to be queued and managed by the EICC system.
