Epik's Call Center is a carrier-class, communications management product for Call Center agents and supervisors used with Epik's BroadWorks® telephony softswitch platform, on which call centers are hosted.

The Call Center functionality available to you depends on your Call Center function (agent or supervisor), the types of queues you are staffing or monitoring (Standard or Premium), and your own services and settings.  For more information about the capabilities and services assigned to you, ask your group or enterprise administrator.
The following provide an overview of Call Center – Agent and Call Center – Supervisor features across all three license options.
