NICE Workforce Management Enables American Support to Deliver Improved Customer Experience While Reducing Costs
PARAMUS, New Jersey; February 22, 2016 – NICE Systems, (NASDAQ: NICE) and Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), announced today that American Support is using NICE Workforce Management (WFM) in the Cloud as part of their Five9 cloud implementation. The U.S.-based call center outsourcer implemented the solution to over 500 seats, to improve sales and operational efficiency for their clients as a replacement to its outdated, on premise WFM system.
In addition to NICE Workforce Management, American Support also implemented NICE Express Messenger, which automates the time-consuming task of communicating schedule changes to agents and their supervisors, and transmits last minute schedule changes to their cell phone and/or home e-mail address when they are out of the office. With less administrative work, workforce managers and contact center supervisors can focus on managing their day-to-day operations, instead of dealing with relaying schedule changes.
As part of their cloud strategy, American Support has been running on Five9 for years, to deliver everything to connect customers to agents in any channel, including phone, web, chat, email, mobile apps and social media. Five9 provides a full end-to-end solution with sophisticated management applications such as Supervisor Desktop to monitor and coach agents, real-time and historical reporting, recording, workforce management, quality monitoring, and out-of-the-box as well as custom CRM integrations.
Seamlessly integrated with the Five9 platform, NICE WFM enables American Support to deliver an improved customer experience from the call center, while meeting their service levels for their clients.
Matt Zemon, President and CEO of American Support:
“The NICE Workforce Management solution hosted in the cloud provides our team with an easy user experience and is ideal for our forecasting and scheduling needs, and the support provided by Five9 has ensured a stable and cost-effective deployment in the cloud. In addition, the agility provided by a cloud solution supports our growth and allows us to scale while reducing overall capital spending. By taking this step, we will be able to improve customer experience while gaining additional operational efficiency.”
Tom Dziersk, President, NICE Americas
“This is a great example of how cloud-enabled collaboration with Five9 is helping companies large and small leverage market-leading workforce management. We are delighted to see American Support benefitting from an easier user experience and lower capex with the NICE/Five9 solution.”
Mike Burkland, President and CEO, Five9
“Five9 provides an end-to-end cloud contact center solution for companies, such as American Support, to enhance their customer engagement and improve operational efficiency. Our partnership with NICE enables us to extend our platform to provide industry leading WFM software in the cloud.”
