Leveraging the SuiteFlex Development Platform, Five9 Develops Integrated Customer Service Application to Meet the Needs of the Call Center Software Market
PLEASANTON, Calif. - October 25, 2007 - Five9, Inc., a leader in on-demand call center solutions, today announced that it has become a partner of NetSuite's SuiteFlex Developer Program. With its innovative Five9 Virtual Call Center™, Five9 has extended NetSuite's One System Architecture with new capabilities to meet the needs of call centers for small and medium-sized businesses. The SuiteFlex Development platform allows third party applications to integrate rich transaction data - orders, inventory, invoices and shipments - with their applications, and enable customers and third-party developers to build new workflows and applications that can look and operate as if NetSuite's own developers wrote them.
"By leveraging the SuiteFlex platform to integrate their on-demand call center solution with NetSuite CRM," said Mini Peiris, VP of Product Management at NetSuite, "Five9 enables our CRM clients to effectively track customer calls and activities across sales, service, and support operations."
Because NetSuite holds critical business data of a company - orders, invoices, Web site transactions, shipping records, time tracking and payroll data - the applications that are built on it using SuiteFlex provide key tools for managing the company's business. For example, with Five9, when call center agents receive calls, the appropriate customer information is automatically displayed in the NetSuite application, increasing agent productivity and improving the customer experience. And, agents and sales reps can "click to call" from a NetSuite contact, saving time and eliminating dialing errors.
"Five9 and NetSuite are leading vendors of on-demand software, and our participation in the SuiteFlex Developer Program allows us to bring even greater value to our mutual customers," said Jim Dvorkin, Five9 CTO. "By linking a comprehensive view of the customer with operational activities within the call center, companies can achieve greater customer satisfaction and agent productivity than ever before."About The Five9 Virtual Call Center™
