How to Request a Dialogue Studio for Dialogue Cloud UCC's

A Dialogue Studio installation can be requested via your Anywhere365 contact or Partner and enabled for one or more UCC A Unified Contact Center, or UCC, is a queue of interactions (voice, email, IM, etc.) that are handled by Agents. Each UCC has its own settings, IVR menus and Agents. Agents can belong to one or several UCCs and can have multiple skills (competencies). A UCC can be visualized as a contact center “micro service”. Customers can utilize one UCC (e.g. a global helpdesk), a few UCC’s (e.g. for each department or regional office) or hundreds of UCC’s (e.g. for each bed at a hospital). They are interconnected and can all be managed from one central location.'s. This also applies for enabling additional UCC's to your Dialogue Studio at a later moment.

Note: One Dialogue Studio is the default per customer, per region. This Dialogue Studio will serve and act as the canvas for all of the enabled services and UCC's within that region. Multiple Dialogue Studios within a region can be made available upon request and with consent of our sales and project delivery organization.

Warning: A restart of the service (affecting all your UCC's in that service) is required to enable a (new) UCC for your Dialogue Studio. Please plan this install in a service window for your service.

The total number of unique keys (2<sup>128</sup> of 3.4028×10<sup>38</sup>) is very large and the probability of the creating the same GUID twice is very small, though not 100% guaranteed.
