Large Insurance Provider Selects Five9 Cloud-Based Solution To Optimize Contact Center Operations

Five9 Chosen for Rapid Deployment, Advanced Reporting and Support of Remote Agents


SAN RAMON, CALIF. – June 7, 2016 – Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN), a leading provider of cloud software for the enterprise contact center market, announced today that a large insurance provider has selected the Five9 Virtual Contact Center (VCC). The company’s 400,000 members access a robust network of top doctors, community health centers, and academic and regional hospitals by communicating with the contact center. This customer represents over $600,000 in annual recurring revenue to Five9.  


The customer anticipated a relocation of the company’s headquarters, which translated to the need for a fast, yet reliable implementation of a brand new contact center solution that could also support numerous remote agents. The customer previously used a premise-based technology, which could not keep up with the growing demand corresponding with the growing business. Since implementing Five9 the company has been able to scale and leverage advanced reporting capabilities to improve the operations of the contact center through better efficiencies. In addition, the cloud-based technology allowed the customer to access the best remote talent available, regardless of their location, within the competitive healthcare market.


Primary reasons Five9 was chosen include:

  • Rapid deployment
  • Advanced reporting capability
  • Support of remote agents


“The healthcare industry, like most others, needs to attract the most qualified employees in order to be competitive in the market. The Five9 solution allows agents to work from home, or a remote office, with the same technology benefits as being on site, which is a strong selling point in recruiting the top agents,” said Mike Burkland, President and CEO, Five9.
