Leading Medical Research Company Implements Five9 Cloud Software Increasing Operational Efficiency in the Contact Center

Five9 Enables More Efficient Production of Valuable Survey Results



SAN RAMON, CALIF. – March 14, 2016 – Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), a leading provider of cloud software for the enterprise contact center market, announced today that a leading medical research company with more than 2,000 employees has implemented the Five9 Virtual Contact Center (VCC) to increase the operational efficiency of the company’s contact center.


The customer’s legacy, premise-based solution was not well integrated into their workflows. Five9 Cloud APIs provides a seamless integration with the customer’s own home-grown CRM solution, creating a unified platform to conduct their research, which was an important driver in the decision. The Five9 VCC is designed to enable the customer to obtain and categorize data, collected during outbound survey calls, much more efficiently. Five9 also provided the department with improved insight into the efficiency of each campaign, using a variety of reporting tools, including real-time personalized dashboards, views, and alerts that monitor real-time contact center statistics.


By centralizing their contact center operations on the Five9 VCC platform, the customer can now gain broader insights and improve efficiency.


Primary reasons Five9 was chosen include:

  • Custom integration between Five9 and customer CRM solutions
  • Ability for business users to easily manage the solution  
  • Access to analytics and reporting


“This customer is tasked with delivering accurate and timely survey results to the medical community. I’m pleased that the Five9 solution has increased the efficiency of their contact center operations,” said Mike Burkland, President and CEO, Five9.
