YMCA of the USA is the national resource office for more than 2,700 community YMCAs throughout the country, serving more than 22 million men, women and children in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation. As the internal service center, including an executive emergency line, reliability and call quality was a high priority item in YMCA’s search to replace its premises-based platform.
"At Talkdesk, we recognize that uptime is the most critical component to customer service success," said Tiago Paiva, chief executive officer, Talkdesk. "As a leader in the cloud contact center space, at the leading edge of innovation and reliability, Talkdesk stands behind our customers with a commitment to the success of our customers."
"Talkdesk’s clicks-not-code approach to call flow administration has had a significantly positive effect on our IT department’s resources," said Gregory Van Den Ham, senior director, IT operations, YMCA of the USA. "Instead of dedicating a half-day or more to minor changes, the IT team is able to focus on higher priority issues while the service center can update and customize their system with ease."
