Why Chromebook PC for Cisco Finesse Agents

Chromebooks are low-cost, low-maintenance devices offered as an alternative to Windows PCs. They do not store any information locally and no installation allowed for the users. You can send a standard Chromebook PC to a new starter without installing anything on it and they can start taking calls immediately using the web browser. No Cisco phone required.

Chromebooks can be used by the remote agents without any VPN required as well as the agents on the local network.
