Sytel’s 48 Hour Cloud Contact Center Challenge

Aylesbury, United Kingdom, March 29, 2020 –(– Sytel have installed a production-ready 200 seat cloud contact center within 48 hours, in response to a customer needing a fast operational shift.

Sytel CEO Michael McKinlay recounts: “The call came in late Friday night: ‘Can you get a 200 seat contact center up and working over the weekend?’ ‘Sure’ we said.

“So during the weekend…

• We installed our Softdial Contact Center™ platform using the customer’s virtualisation infrastructure

• We helped them connect to their phone carrier

• We showed them how to configure inbound queues and how to route calls to the most appropriate agents

• They deployed a browser environment and headsets so that agents could work at home just as if they were in the contact center

• Jointly, we wrote some scripts for the agents to use

• They integrated our system with their database, enabling scripts to take data in real time from customer records

• They made sure that the script wrote call results back to their database, to keep the back office people happy

• They set up our IVR to play messages to any inbound callers waiting in queue

• We figured out which reports they would need

• We showed them how to use our screen/voice recording product to review agent performance

“Monday morning was Go Live time. Result… one very happy customer!”

Eduardo Miller, Sytel’s Hosted Deployments Director, added “Super job by a super team! If Sytel can help other organisations install new systems quickly, including home working, just email [email protected] Any time, any country.”
