Al Rayan Bank Uses Vonage Contact Center to Avoid Business Disruption During COVID-19
London, UK, May 6, 2020 -- Vonage (Nasdaq: VG), a global business cloud communications provider, announced that Al Rayan Bank, a UK Sharia-compliant retail bank, avoided business disruption and maintained its commitment to customer service with the Vonage Contact Center by transitioning employees from office locations to their homes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Al Rayan Bank chose the Vonage Contact Center to provide telephone banking, sales and customer service functions to customers. In response to COVID-19 shelter-in-place [stay-at-home orders] Vonage enabled Al Rayan Bank to seamlessly transition all employees from working at office locations throughout the UK to their homes in days, while continuing to offer its personal, business and customers access to its contact centre and self-service functionality. Vonage also helped Al Rayan Bank implement a phone line to prioritise calls from NHS staff and other key workers.
Imran Pasha, Chief Operations Officer at Al Rayan Bank, explains, "Al Rayan Bank is committed to supporting its customers through the current coronavirus crisis. We are proud to have a large number of medical professionals who choose to bank with us, and setting up a ‘key workers’ hotline’ so that we can prioritise their calls and serve them more quickly is a small token of our appreciation for the incredible work they are doing. I would like to thank our partner Vonage for quickly helping us to set up this hotline and transition to a completely remote working environment. During this challenging period when demand for communication has increased, Vonage has consistently gone the extra mile by utilising its expertise to implement cloud-based technology solutions, enabling a better customer experience."
"Contact centres play a key role in supporting customers as they are often the first line of defence. And in uncertain times, it’s vital for businesses to stay connected to customers without disruption," said Rodolpho Cardenuto, President, Vonage Applications Group. "We’re pleased that the Vonage Contact Center can enable organisations like Al Rayan Bank to easily operate remotely while delivering the best possible customer experience."
