Businesses can use contact center functionality to mobilize their organisation around the customer. Contact center agents are traditionally desk-based, therefore they always have access to the PCs. However, there are many cases to login as a call center agent (or a supervisor) through mobile app and receive calls through mobile phone line with full call center functionality. Also partners, resellers, field sales and support staff can be reachable through the contact center for better accessibility, detailed reporting and audio recording for compliance and speech analytics. All conversations can go through mobile cellular network so the call quality is guaranteed.

Switch between desktop and mobile
Call center agents can switch between their desktop applications and mobile app whenever they need mobility. IT Support staff can move around the campus but stay accessible as a call center through mobile phone line. They can switch back to desktop and desk phone when they return to their desks.
Partners, Resellers, Field Sales and Support
Partners and resellers are often not linked into the contact center network infrastructure. Resellers in particular may be small businesses therefore it may not be straightforward to hook them into the contact center infrastructure. Using contact center mobile agent app, these users can login as a call center agent, set themselves available and receive customer calls with all the call center features via their mobile phone line. You can see the experience on the video from this link.
Out of Hours Coverage
In many contact centers, out of hours coverage transfers the urgent calls to a particular number. It is not scalable, nor easily reportable. By using mobile agent app, multiple agents can be accessible for out of hours coverage, monitor the queue and stay in available state even when the phone is locked.
