South Ayrshire Council has purchased the revolutionary ContactCentre 59R
that combines automation with live operators in one seamless application.

15th February 2010, Hemel Hempstead, UK – Telephonetics VIP
, the speech
automation and data integration specialist, today announces the signing of a
contract with South Ayrshire Council for the supply of its ContactCentre 59R
ACD solution; a powerful, intelligent, customer focused call handling
solution that effectively routes customer calls, promoting customer first.

South Ayrshire Council’s main criteria for purchasing ContactCentre 59R were
that it integrated with Lagan’s Enterprise Case Management (ECM) system –
Telephonetics VIP has
achieved Lagan Silver Partner Solution status with its successful
integration with Lagan’s ECM. The project has to work to a tight timescale
and Telephonetics VIP’s evidence of delivering on time and in budget meets
this project’s needs. In addition, South Ayrshire Council wanted a solution
that would develop with their business; ContactCentre 59R’s flexibility and
scalability means South Ayrshire Council has the freedom to grow and extend
their contact centre services without additional per seat licence fees.

Mark Holmes, Director of Sales at Telephonetics VIP
commented: “We are
delighted that South Ayrshire Council has chosen ContactCentre 59R believing
it to be the best solution for their current and future requirements.
Understanding, researching and then delivering ‘best-in-class’ solutions
developed by our in-house team to meet our customers’ evolving needs is very
important to us.”
