Dubai, UAE, March 16, 2020 -- Raya Contact Centre, a Business Process Outsourcing service provider with contact centres in the UAE, Egypt and Poland, has announced that it has successfully enabled its entire contact centre workforce to work remotely.

This has given us the ability to utilise our existing investments to seamlessly transition our workforce to a remote working arrangement."
Avaya has also announced the launch of global COVID-19 technical hotlines for customers and partners who are looking for 24/7 support and guidance to help transition to remote workforce deployment models.
