The client partnered with Estuate to extend inContact call center Agent Console voice communication features into their Oracle Siebel CRM solution for a comprehensive call center, enabling the company to provide a better service to customers and retain them.

Business Challenge:

The client’s contact center was facing an ever-increasing set of challenges that were getting in the way of cost effectively and consistently delivering great customer experiences. There was also a drive to boost contact center agent service request productivity . The client had adopted Siebel as its CRM system, and agents needed to touch upon many aspects of CRM during interaction with their customers. A service request call could often connect to many entities within the CRM solution, including customer history, opportunities and/or cases, contacts and/or leads.

The client needed extensive support to handle these significant and elaborate CRM relationships around the group of CRM entities that relate to the call-handling process. They needed integration between Oracle Siebel CRM and the inContact Call Center Application to ensure that call-related CRM entities are linked and recorded within the CRM system to provide a complete 360º historical Screen POP Solution for all their voice-handling activities and associated CRM workflows.

        The same product was earlier designed and delivered to us by another vendor. But it did not perform effectively. We ended up not using the product. Then we approached Estuate with the same requirements. The second version developed by Estuate not only met the expectations but exceeded wherever performance and management was concerned. We have found a real partner in Estuate for all our CRM solutions.
