Convergys Benefits from Call Recording and Quality Monitoring from Verint and Avaya
23 Apr 2013
MELVILLE, N.Y. and SANTA CLARA, CALIF. — With a focus on continuing to provide first-rate service to its clients’ customers, Convergys, a global leader in customer management, has implemented key workforce optimization (WFO) and customer experience management technology from Verint® Systems (NASDAQ: VRNT) and Avaya.
Convergys replaced its existing recording / quality monitoring solution with the latest innovative technology from Verint-Avaya. With approximately 77,000 employees across 70 customer contact centers and other facilities around the world, Convergys needed an architecture that could support its complex, multi-site, multi-client and multi-project business model.
In selecting Avaya and Verint1, Convergys found trusted advisors. As the primary telephony provider for Convergys, Avaya developed a true understanding of Convergys’ newest business needs. In doing so, the teams collaborated to determine the best fit for Convergys, which resulted in a new Verint-Avaya solution with a single application and a smaller server footprint that enables information sharing across the enterprise.
Convergys regards call recording and quality monitoring as key to its focus on expertly managing customer interactions with proactive outbound contact capabilities, intelligent routing of all customer contacts, reporting and analytics, and workforce optimization technologies. The new call recording / quality monitoring solution is helping the company maximize the effectiveness of its business processes, resources and staff. In addition, the solution includes next-generation PCI encryption management software—a key factor in Convergys' purchase decision.
"In our search for the right solution, we wanted to align with true partners who could deliver a scalable, multi-tenant, open architecture to successfully support our multi-faceted environment and deliver significant cost benefits," says Michael Bathon, Convergys Vice President of Solutions Management. "Verint-Avaya exceeded our expectations for partnering with us to deploy this solution on time and in full scope. Verint's VoIP capture architecture aligns with our data center virtualization strategy, and the open API architecture allows Convergys staff to quickly develop integration points with our data warehouses. As a result of implementing the solution, we have replaced 22 legacy call recording environments, realized a 63 percent reduction in servers over our previous solution and reduced our cost of ownership by 30 percent."
Adds Steve Heffron, Convergys SVP of Global Operations, "The Verint-Avaya system is faster and more user friendly, with improved search functionality, easy-to-use forms, useful reminders and more detailed output. The Verint-Avaya team trained our internal resources, and in doing so helped bring them to the level of certification that allows them to manage and maximize the software with confidence. The solution provides a better overall view of the customer experience, supports our global operability and reduces total cost of ownership. We are well positioned for further enhancements that can drive business growth."
