Online retailer abandons on-premises system in favor of inContact’s scalable cloud solutions as it looks towards global expansion
SALT LAKE CITY – November 29, 2016 – inContact, a NICE company (NASDAQ: NICE), the leading provider of cloud contact center software and workforce optimization tools, today announced a rapidly-growing online retailer is moving more than 700 agents in their United States and Europe locations from their on-premises platform to the inContact Customer Interaction Cloud. The solution portfolio will include at-home agents, dispersed globally, as their total number of agents in Europe is projected to double by the end of 2016. The switch to inContact enables the company to leverage cloud scalability to meet their expanding customer service needs with 300 new agents in Europe over 6 months.
“E-Commerce retailers have many touch points with customers that are vital to the success of their businesses,” said Paul Jarman, NICE inContact president. “The inContact Customer Interaction Cloud offers scalability and a pay-as-you-go model that allows the company to grow globally without any disruptions to their customer service.”
The scalability and reliability of inContact’s true cloud platform fit with the company’s global expansion plans by using work-from-home agents and a network of Business Process Outsourcers unified on the inContact solution. Additionally, inContact’s easy-to-use customized and configurable cloud solutions are expected to reduce overall operating expenses. By removing the Professional Service charges associated with making changes to maintain and upgrade a premises-based infrastructure, the retailer is expected to save more in the long term.
Along with inContact’s industry-leading Voice as a Service network connectivity to improve its customer service quality and reliability and omnichannel routing capabilities, the company chose inContact Workforce Optimization
to help increase agent operational efficiencies. These tools, seamlessly integrated with inContact omnichannel routing capabilities, provide a consistent agent interface across all media channels to reduce agent call handling time which helps contribute to an overall increase in customer satisfaction.
