About this Course

Advanced Contact Center Express Scripting Labs v9.0 (ACCXSL) is a 5-day instructor-led, lab-intensive course intended for experienced Unified Contact Center Express (CCX) administrators who need in-depth knowledge advanced scripting techniques using complex script steps to resolve sophisticated contact center requirements. This course addresses the steps in the Script Editor pallet as well as scripting techniques involving databases, HTTP, XML, VXML, Java Objects, and Desktop Administration.

This course is intended to be a follow-on course to UCCXD v4.0 or UCCX 5.0, and completely replaces the outdated Unified Contact Center Advanced v1.0 class. ACCXSL introduces updated best practices, sophisticated steps, and modern concepts for deploying advanced contact center applications and techniques.

The class utilizes Cisco Unified Contact Center Express 9.0 and highlights new application features and services. Sunset Learning has deployed Unified CCX labs on the latest UCS platforms using VMWare ESXi and vSphere technology.
