SALT LAKE CITY – September 15, 2010 —inContact (NASDAQ: SAAS), the market leader in hosted call center software and call center agent optimization tools, announced today that Calif.-based Alameda Alliance for Health (Alliance) has implemented the company’s hosted call routing, interactive voice response (IVR) and outbound dialing solutions. The inContact technology is expected to help the Alliance meet their aggressive customer service goals for their more than 110,000 members and 1,700 health care providers.
“We receive more than 200,000 calls from both members and service providers annually,” explained Ingrid Lamirault, Alliance chief executive officer. “We need a modern, cost-effective call center solution with tools to accommodate our anticipated membership growth due the State’s expansion of managed care for its Medi-Cal beneficiaries and changes from federal health care reform expected as early as 2013.”
Before implementing the inContact system, the Alliance had an outdated premise-based system that made configurations and accessing data very difficult, and also limited the company’s ability to scale quickly or fully utilize technology to meet growing demands. The Alliance selected the inContact system for three primary reasons: to provide better service to its members via skills-based call routing, to strengthen its ability to communicate in a timely and efficient fashion using customizable messages, and to add outbound campaigns for the first time.
inContact now links the agents in each department on the same system, seamlessly routes the calls to the right agent trained to take each particular call, and provides a pay-as-you-go pricing model with the ability to expand without adding new equipment. Additionally, inContact’s cloud-based technology enables the Alliance to eliminate thousands of dollars in capital expenditures for conventional installed equipment.
“Through our hundreds of implementations, we know how to help our customers meet their business goals. The Alliance contract demonstrates how we can help our customers utilize the technology to meet the needs of their customers,” said Durinda Biesman, senior vice president, Global Service Delivery for inContact. “Additionally, our solution removes upfront capital investment, worry about managing hardware and the need for in-house telephony specialists while also providing feature-rich capabilities to optimize customer interactions. For the Alliance, as for so many other organizations, the choice is clear.”
