Customer Experience was Paramount

After evaluating IP phone systems from various suppliers, including Mitel and Avaya, Allo Transport chose Avaya’s IP Office Platform and contact centre solution.

“Avaya’s solutions are widely used and well-respected,” comments Raja Kurban, Managing Director at Allo Transport. “We felt they were the best fit for our business.”

The Allo Transport team felt that the Avaya IP Office Platform offered scalability, flexibility and versatility. Support for a range of devices, including analogue, digital and IP-based, was attractive. The platform can be deployed in high availability configurations and is simple to programme. Avaya’s IP Office contact centre solution provides a valuable live reporting facility with detailed information on contact centre performance.

Excellent results

“The biggest benefit of Avaya’s technology is the flexibility and reliability of the system,” observes Kurban.

“Since the Avaya telephony and contact centre solution has been implemented, we have been able to make huge inroads to our service,” he remarks. “We have come to rely on Avaya’s technology solutions to optimise our customer service.”

“It’s enabled us to retain a big market share in transport services across Lebanon.”

Avaya IP Office easily and affordably scales as Allo Transport’s communications needs change, easily expanding to 3,000 users, at a single site or up to 150 locations.

The contact centre technology has helped Allo Transport route calls more intelligently to improve first contact resolution, and has greatly contributed to strong customer satisfaction among Allo’s client base.

With screen pop-up call history on every customer, the contact centre efficiently manages incoming taxi bookings and enquiries. Based on the information from the caller, the contact centre staff will locate the nearest taxi drivers on the map to arrange a quick and efficient service to their clients.
