What is screen pop?

Screen pop is a feature that displays enhanced caller information to a call center agent. It can surface relevant information such as account numbers, purchases, and helpdesk tickets.

When an agent receives an inbound call, a pop-up appears with rich customer insights. For screen pop to show customer information on an agent's screen, the phone system pulls the data from a CRM.

Screen pop is also known as CTI pop, call pop-ups, and automatic screen pops. This call center technology is now available for businesses of all sizes.
