Large Environmental Service and Waste Management Company Selects Five9 Cloud Software To Improve Customer Experience

Five9 Enables Centralization of Contact Center Technologies



SAN RAMON, CALIF. – March 8, 2016 – Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), a leading provider of cloud software for the enterprise contact center market, announced today that a large environmental service and waste management company, with over 5,000 employees and more than $1 billion in revenue, has implemented the Five9 Virtual Contact Center (VCC). Five9 was chosen to help improve the experience of their residential, commercial and industrial customers. This deal has annual recurring revenue of $750,000+. 


Prior to Five9, the environmental services company operated several contact centers nationwide; each operating with its own standalone system which resulted in inconsistent customer experiences and failed Service Level Agreements (SLA). By transitioning all of the contact center operations into one consolidated solution from Five9 they believe they will be able to achieve greater economies of scale and improve the response time of their contact center agents, enabling them to deliver a better and more consistent customer experience.


The waste disposal and services company has implemented Five9 across customer service, accounts receivable, and sales operations, designed to allow them to scale as they continue to expand their operations. The company leveraged the expertise and consultative approach of the Five9 Professional Services team to provide guidance and best practices through the implementation.


Primary reasons Five9 was chosen include:

  • Consolidation of operations into one virtual contact center
  • Ability to improve contact center agent response time
  • Scalability for expanding operations


“Five9 strives to help companies provide the best possible customer experience through a positive contact center agent experience. This is one of our many customers who have been able to receive strong, tangible results since implementing the Five9 solution,” said Mike Burkland, President and CEO, Five9.
