VOSS Solutions has announced a collaboration with KCOM to offer an integrated management solution for both UC and Contact Center, enabling front and back office support from a single, highly intuitive administration portal.
KCOM is one of the UK’s most respected and established IT and communications services companies, offering integrated solutions to some of the UK’s largest public and private sector enterprises. In 2012, KCOM became the first Cisco HCS Contact Center customer in Europe and VOSS has provided the UC management component to KCOM’s cloud communications platform ever since.
The ground-breaking innovation from VOSS addresses the need for management efficiency and customer control in today’s cloud delivered solutions, replacing what historically was a fragmented blend of manual effort, disparate management applications, and spreadsheets. VOSS-4-UC offers a comprehensive and single domain management approach, through a single portal, helping KCOM to provide a robust, enterprise grade service that meets the needs and expectations of today’s demanding customers.
To manage a combined back office and front office estate, VOSS has developed the VOSS-4-UC management platform by adding new elements that are then tightly integrated into KCOM’s environment. The end to end solution from VOSS offers KCOM:
— A consistent approach to managing back office users and front office agents – a faster, more accurate and simpler way to manage change on the service
— Improved customer experience – customer access for self-service is managed through a single portal
— Flexibility – quicker access to and rapid deployment of new features as requested by enterprise customers
— Increased accuracy – removal of manual and multiple data entry points in different management applications
— Reduced revenue leakage when integrated into billing – all customers, consumed services and changes are correctly charged for as they are provisioned
VOSS-4-UC also includes a northbound integration module, which gives KCOM the flexibility to integrate their HCS and contact center environments into their billing and CRM systems, so that as subscribers, agents and services are provisioned, these can be accurately and promptly billed.
