Manage your customer expectations, while we manage your solutions
Outages affecting contact center availability have an immediate downward spiraling effect if not resolved quickly. Customers are unhappy, KPIs are blown, revenue is lost…in short, every minute counts.
Verizon’s Contact Center Managed Services (CCMS), available around the globe, is a fully outsourced operational support model specifically designed to monitor and manage critical contact center applications. We bring a highly advanced monitoring platform along with an ITIL based service delivery model that is focused on maintaining critical contact center applications!
Large health care and pharmaceutical provider increased scale and efficiency of business leadership by providing multiple business management on a single CCMS platform.
What is CCMS?
Our Contact Center Managed Services (CCMS) is offered as a stand-alone product and can be implemented in conjunction with our entire portfolio of products and services.
Our Contact Center Managed Services (CCMS) provides proactive monitoring and management of a customer's contact center infrastructure, either at the customer location or Verizon facilities. CCMS helps customers to reduce their IT staffing dedicated to center management, strengthen infrastructure stability, and focus on managing their business instead of their contact center infrastructure.
How does CCMS work?
CCMS is a managed service built upon two foundational elements within the Verizon portfolio. Underlying the managed service is an advanced monitoring and management platform that extends well into the application layer to identify, interpret and react to application-generated alerts and conditions. This robust set of monitoring and management tools has been integrated into our robust alert notification and ticketing engines to provide our operational teams with up-to-date information about the state of the customer’s environment.
For CCMS, the monitoring and management comes together in our operational support model which is led by the Integrated Solutions Desk (ISD). The combination of our ITIL-certified ISD and advanced application monitoring and management platform results in a customer-centric support model.

ITIL based Service Delivery Framework
One of the most common causes of outages in contact center environments can be attributed to lack of or poorly executed processes. At Verizon, we have developed proven and repeatable processes based on ITIL framework. This gives us standardized methods for maintaining platform stability and introducing change while limiting adverse effect. We have invested in ITIL certifications and process development to keep our support teams up to date on industry best practices for service delivery.
Predictable Cost Model
In this time of increasing pressure on capital budgets, CCMS offers an expense based pricing model comprised of predictable monthly recurring charges. As an added flexibility, customers can add managed services as their business needs change.
