SSS Management main call center located in Bristol SSS were using a Nortel Meridian Option 11 and Symposium Call Centre statistical reporting package supplied by BT. The system had been made end of life and was proving to be expensive to maintain and support on going.
The client also used a Call Recording platform that was end of life and this also was proving to be difficult to support as a product.
Further resilience was also desired from the core system, with the potential to look to install diverse routed ISDN lines in case of an ISDN line failure at the exchange.
As a business the Call Centre in Bristol is an essential part of their business and actually intrinsic to how they provide a service for their customers. And therefore revenues for the business.
It was therefore unacceptable for them as a business to have a product in place on which the business depends that is not in fully supported by the manufacturer.
Some upgrade options were explored for the Meridian, but these proved to be very expensive and the decision was made to invite competitive bids from new potential suppliers.
Diacom Networks Ltd put forward a solution from Mitel with the CS5000 HX and CSM Call Center Reporting Software. A Retell ISDN30 PRI based Call Recorder was also recommended which is integrated into the CS5000 via SMDR.
Commercially and technically this proved to be the right choice moving forward and was selected by the customer.
The CS5000 HX is a very feature rich and cost effective platform on which to base any call center application. It is simple to manage, and provides a comprehensive range of functions as no cost options.
CSM also represents an excellent real time statistical reporting package, simple to manage yet intuitive in its reports. Retell Recorders also represent very good value yet are highly featured and as such delivery a very cost effective return on investment.
Overall the solution offered by Diacom Networks Ltd has proved to be a sound investment for SSS Management Ltd. And has delivered what the customer required technically, and commercially moving forward. With a much lower total cost of ownership proposition.
