Required was a fully compliant and high specification phone system that integrated with the client’s own customer management system to offer additional efficiency throughout the business.
The system was pre-configured and installed at the client’s 23rd floor London office. The system offered live presence of colleagues on and off site and integrated well with other key software used by the business. Features included were:
- Disaster recovery and auto divert functionality
- 100+ phone system features plus mobility
- Collaboration – chat, file sharing
- Live call reporting and call management plugin
In March 2020 like all UK business, the client was asked by the UK government to work from home. The solution already installed at Shard meant that end users simply needed to download and activate a softphone with support from Bluecube. End users were able to make, receive and manage calls using a laptop, PC or Mac. The mobile application available from Bluecube also enabled the client’s team to work on the move.
