8×8 Partners with Teleopti

Acquisition

8×8 a provider of cloud-based unified communications, contact centre and collaboration solutions, has announced it has partnered with Teleopti to deliver the first 100% cloud-based, best of breed Virtual Contact Centre and Workforce Management solution.

8×8 and Teleopti have tightly integrated their solutions to provide a new service that uses 8×8 Virtual Contact Centre’s call history data to drive Teleopti’s staffing models, enabling call centres to quickly design a schedule that optimises their staffing resources. Once the system is in use, up to the minute statistics from 8×8 are fed to Teleopti, giving contact managers unprecedented flexibility to ensure they are running at top efficiency. This integration can even be extended directly into payroll systems to further reduce the labour required to manage contact centre staffing.

“The Virtual Contact Centre/Teleopti solution is a ground breaking integration purpose built to take full advantage of the cloud to help call centres deliver a new level of service to their customers in a very efficient and expedient manner,” said 8×8 Sr. Vice President of Business Development Huw Rees. “8×8 and Teleopti did all of the heavy lifting up front so that customers could quickly realise the value of this powerful, turnkey contact centre solution.”

The Teleopti WFM solution drives improvements in customer service, employee satisfaction and operational excellence through forecasting, scheduling, preference and request handling, communication, intraday management, reporting and performance management. The new bundled Virtual Contact Centre/Teleopti WFM solution offers extensive, out of the box capabilities that enable call centres to immediately begin improving performance, reducing cost and increasing profitability.

“By partnering with 8×8 to provide a full cloud-based experience, we are able to empower the contact centre or line of business manager to fully control all aspects of the customer experience without a dependency on IT,” said David Påhlman, President of Teleopti, Inc. “This gives companies the flexibility to enhance customer relationships while significantly reducing costs.”
