MARKHAM, ONTARIO – Dec. 21, 2016 – Enghouse Systems Limited (TSX:ENGH) today announced that systems integrator and network solutions provider Datametrix, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telenor Group, has selected Enghouse Interactive’s Contact Center: Service Provider (CCSP) as the platform for its new contact center as-a-service (CCaaS) offering.
Datametrix, a tenured call center solutions provider founded 20 years ago, has 330 employees and is headquartered in Oslo, Norway. The company approached Enghouse during its search for a cloud contact center partner with the means to support growth across its markets in the Nordic countries of Europe.
In addition to providing a CCaaS offering, the Datametrix BusinessCloud Contact Center solution would also deliver strategic value by integrating with Telenor’s voice-centric mobile and fixed communication services. With a special focus in Norway and Sweden, Datametrix is well suited to offer a complete communication portfolio and a commercial model that gives the customer the scalability and flexibility of cloud services.
“By extending our BusinessCloud portfolio with CCSP we have enhanced our ability to provide CCaaS, particularly in small, medium and enterprise businesses, with value-added services that are cost-effective and easily consumable from the cloud on an as-needed basis,” said Frank Svendsen, Business Leader for cloud, Datametrix.
After an exhaustive search, Datametrix selected Enghouse Interactive and CCSP. The alignment of CCSP functionality with market demand, its multi-tenant architecture, low total cost of ownership (TCO), and Enghouse’s global footprint, which includes in-region expertise to support the partnership, were principal factors influencing the decision.
“Enghouse Interactive not only empowers us to augment current as-a-service offerings of unified communications, network and video,” added Mr. Svendsen. “It also helps solidify our position as the one-stop communications solutions provider so highly valued by our customers.”
CCSP is purpose-built for cloud computing, and ideally suited for service providers to capitalize on the global shift from prohibitive capital expenditures and outdated legacy systems, to an operating expense-based pricing model that complements the need for scalability. Built on a multi-tenant architecture, CCSP provides service providers with the means to offer rich contact center functionality to their business clientele that is consumable from the cloud, as-a-service.
“We are honored that Datametrix has entrusted Enghouse Interactive as their cloud contact center partner,” said Jacki Tessmer, Vice President of Cloud and Service Provider Strategy, Enghouse Interactive. “Savvy service providers like Datametrix now bundle enterprise business applications with broadband-based data and voice services as a means for differentiation in today’s hyper-competitive environment. We applaud Datametrix for its keen awareness and for investing the resources to meet increasing customer demand for cloud solutions that are powerful, yet flexible and adaptable to changing business needs.”
CCSP 7.2, the newest version, extends Enghouse Interactive’s emphasis on usability with TouchPoint, an agent and supervisor interface devoid of clutter with a minimal onscreen footprint, delivering a clear, updated and intuitive agent experience ideal for multitasking.
CCSP 7.2 also features a Connector for Skype® for Business, which synchronizes agent presence with that of enterprise workers and enables agents to see all Skype for Business contacts with their presence information directly in TouchPoint. This functionality not only facilitates greater collaboration between front and back office but also allows service providers such as Datametrix to bundle unified communication solutions from Microsoft with cloud contact center solutions.
