Retailer Long Tall Sally has implemented NewVoiceMedia’s cloud-based telephony solution, ContactWorld, within it’s UK and Canadian call centres to support the clothing retailer’s recent acquisition activity.
Following Long Tall Sally’s acquisition of Tall Girl in North America, the company found itself with two international call centres – one in the UK and another in Canada. Each centre was using different telephony solutions, which weren’t compatible with one another. It was obvious Long Tall Sally needed a telephony solution that offered the flexibility to work seemlessly across both call centres.
”The contact centre solution in the UK had previously used a hosted solution from another provider, while the Canadian one had on-premise hardware. Neither of the solutions ’spoke to’ each other, meaning that each system was unable to run in tandem,” explains Alison Doherty, group operations director at Long Tall Sally. ”We looked at several on-premise suppliers and other cloud offerings, but none could match the flexibility, cost-effectiveness and simplicity that ContactWorld provides us with.”
ContactWorld is a cloud-based solution that provides links and call plan intelligence between the caller and agent. Now when customers in Canada call the Long Tall Sally service line, they will first be directed to the Canadian contact centre and if all the agents are busy, they will be redirected to the UK centre and vice versa. This ensures that there is always an agent available to speak to callers for any incoming queries.
Jonathan Grant, CEO at NewVoiceMedia, comments: ”Long Tall Sally is going through a very exciting period, and we are pleased to be part of this. ContactWorld has the flexibility to support the company’s expansion into new international territories, ensuring that it can offer continiuity of service globally.”
ContactWorld is delivered as a hosted solution over the Internet on a monthly fee per user. This payment model ensures that Long Tall Sally only pays for what it uses and offers a flexible approach to support future growth.
