SAN RAMON, Calif. – April 2, 2020 – Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), the leading provider of the intelligent cloud contact center, today announced the company’s software is being utilized with coronavirus (COVID-19) informational hotlines to handle incoming calls across the United States.

“In this unprecedented time of uncertainty, people are demanding access to information,” said Dan Burkland, Five9 President. “Five9 is proud to offer a reliable and safe work from home solution that enables agents to work remotely while also providing essential information regarding COVID-19 to local residents. It is times like these where the power of human connection and access to information is of the utmost importance.”

To date, the Five9 Intelligent Cloud Contact Center is being deployed in Orlando, Detroit and New York City to handle the incoming call traffic of local COVID-19 informational hotlines.
