Setting up Click-to-Call
You can initiate, hang up, or put on hold calls from external applications or websites. When an agent successfully logs in to VCC Live, an embedded HTTP server is started and bound to the port set by a supervisor. Any software that can send HTTP GET requests to the VCC Live Click-to-Call interface can be used to manage calls.
