The Local CRM (or Customer Relationship Manager) in 8x8 Contact Center gives you the ability to manage customer and case data. Use the CRM page in Configuration Manager to define the Customer and Case fields to identify and characterize interactions. For your contact center, you have the option to use Local CRM or a third-party CRM such as Salesforce or Zendesk with VCC supports out of the box.
You must select either the Local CRM or a third party integration for case and contact management. Both cannot be used together.
