New offerings are the first on the market to provide small businesses an affordable way to dramatically increase their sales and customer service through the use of next generation on-demand call center technologies.
PLEASANTON, Calif. (March 27, 2007) - Five9, Inc., the leader in on-demand call center solutions, today introduced two call center packages designed for small businesses. These packages are aimed at providing small businesses with an affordable way to significantly boost both their sales and customer service levels. The Five9 Call Center Suite - Small Business Edition and Five9 Inbound Call Center - Small Business Edition are out-of-the-box solutions that provide comprehensive inbound and/or outbound call center functionality designed specifically for small teams that spend majority of time on the phone as part of their daily activities. The packages include four concurrent seat licenses, twelve phone lines, supervisor and administrator applications, as well as additional customer support and training features at no extra cost.
"Five9's bundle for small businesses is exactly what we needed," said Ken Malecki, president of Nationwide Lending. "Searching for a hosted call center on our budget was a challenge, but with the Five9 Call Center Suite for small businesses we were able to buy a package that included only the services we need. Additionally, we've found the outbound telemarketing capabilities to be incredibly comprehensive and valuable, and we've saved thousands."
The Five9 Inbound Call Center - Small Business Edition provides everything an inbound sales or support team needs including call routing and interactive voice response, and is ideal for businesses looking to improve customer support and increase in-call promotions. The Five9 Call Center Suite - Small Business Edition is ideal for businesses that support outbound and inbound campaigns including telemarketing, telesales and collections.
"These offerings are specifically designed to meet the requirements of any small department that needs basic call center capabilities, quick training and fast setup and implementation" said Jim Dvorkin, CTO of Five9. "The price to performance ratio of these packages really breaks new ground, and now any company regardless of its size, can affordably enhance its communications capabilities with its customers and prospects, in ways that were only previously available to multi billion corporations.
"The majority of small businesses don't think of themselves as being big enough to have a call center; however, when you speak to the owners of small businesses, they all have sales, collections and service departments. Five9's specially packaged on-demand call center offering for small businesses offers them the most affordable way to offer these business-critical capabilities," added Brian Silverman, CEO of Five9. "The comprehensive features in Five9's on-demand call center offering, can boost the bottom-line of a business by increasing customer contact, supporting employees who work remotely, and offering long distance rates of 50-85% lower than traditional rates, to name a few of the benefits."
