"When our customers call our contact center, we need to know why they are calling and ensure we are routing them to the best source of information, all while managing their services expectations," said Jimmy Everingham, project manager at Hoburne Holiday Parks. "Mitel Contact Center Solutions enables us to easily scale up our capacity to meet periods of peak demand, and Visual Workflow Manager lets us better manage the customer experience with call flows that can be quickly and easily changed to ensure we are providing the information and resources that best address a specific customer's needs. The end result is a more satisfied customer."

Mitel Contact Center Solutions incorporates a number of new features that can extend greater flexibility and scalability to contact centers including:

  • External "hot desking" — Enabling agents to work from any device, anywhere, giving contact center managers the potential for greater staffing flexibility and business continuity.
  • Social media integration — Enabling businesses to protect their brand with integration to third-party social media monitoring applications, so that agents can provide proactive responses to social media sites, industry blogs, wikis, knowledge bases, and forums.
  • Visual Workflow Manager — Improving contact center manageability and scalability with a new, easier to manage Interactive Voice Response (IVR) solution, providing the ability to quickly and easily build and manage call flows via a drag and drop graphical interface.
  • Scalability — Increasing capacity to support up to 800 active agents and 2100 agent IDs, with Active Directory Synchronization for simplified provisioning.

"Our contact center customers gave us consistent feedback on their needs; greater flexibility for how and where their agents can work and the ability to interact with their customers no matter what medium they use, be it social media, voice or messaging," said Ron Wellard, executive vice president and general manager, Mitel Communications Solutions. "This latest iteration of Mitel Contact Center Solutions delivers this functionality, allowing their agents to use any device from anywhere to deliver a superior customer experience."
