Five9 Enables Leading University to Work From Home in Under 48 Hours

SAN RAMON, Calif. – April 8, 2020 – Five9, Inc (NASDAQ: FIVN), a leading cloud contact center provider, announced today that the company has successfully enabled a major public university to move their contact center agents to a work from home model within 48 hours.

The Florida based university serves more than 50,000 students and offers undergraduate, graduate, specialist and doctoral degrees. As the COVID-19 outbreak expanded, the university’s help desk support team saw a significant increase in inbound calls and support tickets. The university needed to immediately deploy 60 new remote agents. However, their previous on-premise system was unable to properly support the rapid deployment of these new agents.

On a Thursday, the university contacted Five9. Within 24 hours a contract was signed. By that Monday morning, the university had their agents up and running on the Five9 Intelligent Cloud Contact Center platform. All agents were successfully operating on Five9 and fielding calls from their homes. In addition, due to an outage from their previous solution, the university quickly migrated their remaining agents to Five9.

“This is another example of how Five9 builds trust with our customers due to our ability to react quickly to requests and deliver a complete solution from our world-class professional services team.” said Dan Burkland, Five9 President. “The Five9 team’s rapid response enabled the university to migrate to the cloud almost overnight.”

Five9 recently launched the Five9 FastTrack program which offers a 48 hour turnaround time to quickly migrate contact centers to the cloud and support a work from anywhere model. Existing Five9 customers were able to easily move to a work from home model. Five9 has already assisted tens of thousands of agents transition to remote work and continue to deliver uninterrupted service to their customers during these trying times.
