Founded in 1996, Englishtown is the world’s leading online English language school with 20 million students in 80 different countries. Englishtown operates a contact center in Monterrey, Mexico. These outbound sales, customer care calls and collection campaigns help more than 20 million people across the world successfully develop their English language skills. Englishtown uses Five9 to power the sales campaigns division of the Englishtown contact center.

By combing the powerful telephony features of Five9 with the familiar Salesforce user interface, Englishtown has been able to increase sales, improve agent productivity and deliver better customer service.

“Because Five9 integrates with Salesforce, our agents can view customer information as soon as they connect on a call. Integrating our contact center technology with Salesforce made assisting customers much faster. Agents are connected to customers instantly, without having to make a bunch of calls to reach a customer. Now they reach a live person faster and spend the bulk of their time helping clients.”  

– Hiram Zamora, sales intelligence specialist, Englishtown

  • After switching to Five9, Englishtown was able to increase calls per day by more than 40% using the Five9 Predictive Dialer
  • With Five9 reporting and analytics, Englishtown contact center managers can easily see which agents are underperforming and why, empowering them to take quick corrective actions.
