Leveraging Contact Center Technology to Help America’s Soldiers While Improving Performance and Saving Money
To help government agencies improve the constituent experience while saving millions of dollars each year, our Avaya Government Solutions team is constantly conducting enterprise business analysis, based on Lean Six Sigma principle and a four-step process of discovery, benchmark, scope improvements.
Using comprehensive metrics was critical to determining best deployment and savings for the Defense Health Agency (DHA), a joint, integrated Combat Support Agency that enables the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, and U.S. Air Force medical services to provide a medically-ready force in both peacetime and wartime.
The Avaya team demonstrated to Mack Wyche, Chief, Telecommunications Branch, DHA that UC, contact center, and SIP technologies could streamline the agency’s enterprise conference premise solution, migrate from legacy to SIP trunks at its headquarters, and enhance equipment maintenance. Modernizing all points of DHA’s unified communications and contact center architecture will provide superior performance and $1.5 million in savings, which will fully self-fund the upfront capital.
By centralizing the enterprise conferencing solution that would generate savings of $1.5 million in FY2017 and beyond, the decision was easy for Mr. Wyche: “Avaya Government Solutions provided us with a strong analysis of our current environment and was able to quickly demonstrate savings on day 1 in our contact center infrastructure. Thanks to Avaya Government Solutions, we can now more efficiently serve our soldiers while the savings more than pay for the investment. We look forward to implementation of the Avaya solution and to their continued support.”
Helping the DHA is one of the more gratifying among countless examples of how we are helping Federal and state agencies deliver superior customer services while maximizing their investments. We are proud that our business value analysis, based on Lean Six Sigma principles, clearly demonstrated the superiority of our solution that generated savings immediately.
Mr. Wyche and the DHA are why we get up each day to review, evaluate, and propose smart solutions that help critical government agencies deliver on their promise to their constituents and the American people.
