Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) with Salesforce

Salesforce is a top rank CRM, and a service cloud (Help Desk). Open CTI is a term that refers to modern technology that enables CRM to interact with PABX (Telephone Systems or VOIP). A CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) is mostly used in large enterprises, call centers or contact centers with the aim of improving productivity,.

The Salesforce CTI integration offers a powerful link between modern telephony systems and computer devices. The CTI tool enables sales, service and support teams to receive and make calls using a laptop, mobile, or desktop.

In the past days, CRM users needed a CTI adapter to access telephony system functions and features.  A new CTI integration tool is a JavaScript API that allows users to integrate all other CTI systems.
