Gain Competitive Advantage
You have the same objectives if you’re just starting a new Avaya NES Contact Center or operating an already fully-fledged sophisticated one — retain customers while optimizing operational effectiveness for lower lifetime costs.

Avaya NES Contact Center helps you achieve a new standard of personalized customer service with ultimate flexibility, making you more relevant to your customers. All contacts are routed to the best person the first time using advanced, intelligent skill-based routing, saving time and enhancing customer retention. Recognizing individual skills also boosts employee job satisfaction and provides a path for future career growth, reducing turnover. Because Avaya NES Contact Center aligns these comprehensive contact routing and management capabilities, it’s extremely practical and cost-effective when rolling out e-mail and IM handling, Web chat or outbound contact management along with traditional phone-based interactions. You simplify your Avaya NES Contact Center operations using modular, open and standards-based multimedia communications applications, yet have the functionality to exceed customer expectations. With Avaya Contact Center, you’ll be able to create an inventive approach that helps you stay competitive and profitable.

You can:

  • Unify customer contacts for consistently excellent service — use open multimedia skill-based routing and reporting to manage all your inbound and outbound contacts like e-mail, IM, Web chat, fax, phone, short message service, etc.
  • Streamline service rep desktop information — provide a single, context-sensitive interface for your service reps to handle all inbound, outbound and multimedia contacts to boost productivity and speed learning.
  • Integrate outbound to proactively engage your customers — use the same tools you use for inbound calls to create and monitor blended outbound contacts including preview, progressive and predictive dialing capabilities.
  • Manage easily from almost anywhere — use a browser-based tool for comprehensive real-time and historical management of your Avaya NES Contact Center using secure Internet access to maintain superior service.
  • Put information in the form needed — generate the custom reports you need using the intuitive Report Generation Wizard (no need for report writing experts) to combine data from multiple sources and to gain actionable intelligence.
  • Simplify business integration — reduce your application integration time and costs using the next-generation computer telephony integration (CTI) toolkit or by using open Web services to quickly and inexpensively integrate third-party applications and processes with your customer interaction process.

  • Expand flexibility — use corporate license management to deploy software license capacity where it makes sense across your business to reduce your cost of ownership and enhance resiliency and disaster recovery options.
  • Enhance business resiliency — create a reliable Avaya NES Contact Center architecture using options like automatic fail-over and high availability servers (campus or geographic redundancy) to facilitate your specific business continuity requirements.

Whether your customers love to send instant messages, adore Web self-service or call on a mobile phone, you’ll be able to offer superior, convenient personalized service.

The Avaya NES Contact Center solution offers a single agent desktop interface that lets agents view the presence of experts and communicate with experts via Instant Messaging (IM), solving customer inquiries faster and ultimately boosting customer satisfaction.

Harness the Power of IP
You gain the most flexibility with your Avaya NES Contact Center when you harness the power of IP for enhanced simplicity and adaptability. You acquire tremendous flexibility because geography is not an issue for employees who can be part of your Avaya NES Contact Center wherever they have secure Internet access. An IP infrastructure is simpler, with one wire to the desktop, making it easier and faster to implement with unified management for quick moves, adds and changes. A converged infrastructure supports business growth with a smaller staff and reduces operating costs. You’re more responsive and able to deliver unrivaled service that’s necessary for building long-lasting customer loyalty.

Gain freedom when you eliminate walls and boundaries to leverage remote and mobile staff. Virtualizing your Avaya NES Contact Center enhances productivity, especially when scaling to meet peak demand. Up to 30 sites and 100,000 service reps can be located anywhere and managed centrally as a single entity, integrating all voice, e-mail, IM, Web chat and other multimedia transactions. Numerous and compelling benefits include: improved staff morale due to flexible work schedules and locations; expanded scalability to handle peak demand by drawing on employees across multiple locations; business coverage spanning multiple time zones to offer round-the-clock service; and intelligent skill-based routing to deliver callers to the most appropriate service rep wherever the rep is located, resulting in reduced transaction times. Business continuity is also enhanced by implementing mirrored sites across geographically dispersed locations.

Meet Customers on Their Terms

It’s becoming more and more important for businesses to transform reactive customer contact into more proactive contact, enabling instantaneous communication using any device. Avaya NES Contact Center facilitates critical, real-time multimedia collaboration by tapping into the impressive capabilities of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to simplify dynamic communication. This places a superb set of tools at employee fingertips, making teamwork effortless when solving customer problems and making vital decisions immediately.

Creating contact center workflows can be time-consuming and tedious, requiring hours of call flow scripting workflow documentation. The Avaya Service Creation Environment (SCE) solves these issues with a drag-and-drop graphical development tool that helps you quickly create and re-use workflows. This GUI-based tool is five times faster than traditional text-based scripting and requires no specialized expertise, enabling you to quickly respond to changing market requirements and to make improvements to your customer interaction process with speed and ease.
