News : South Lakeland and Eden District Councils Select Mitel MiContact
June 26, 2014 -- Business communication provider Mitel has provided MiContact Center for South Lakeland and Eden District Councils in Cumbria, England to enhance customer experience.
The virtual solution, integrated with Microsoft Lync, allows home-based agents to integrate seamlessly into the contact center and supervisors to manage and monitor operations from any location.
Implemented by Gateshead-based IT Professional Services, MiContact Center for Lync from Mitel integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Lync to deliver contact Center applications for the District Councils’ 25 customer service agents.
Caroline Metcalfe, contact Center team leader at South Lakeland said: "With the contact Center, we can provide much richer information to callers and the ease of transferring interactions and collaborating with knowledge workers throughout the council has increased first call resolution rates and reduced call times."
The virtual contact Center environment gives home-based agents complete access to all the voice and data capabilities of the contact Center and ensures customer service is not impacted if agents cannot reach the Council sites.
The management capability has been extended to the home, enabling supervisors to spot problem areas, analyze trends, and make decisions in real-time and also help to take calls at peak times.
