Translation Services Company CTS LanguageLink Implements Interactive Intelligence CIC

May 18, 2011

Language interpretation and translation services provider CTS LanguageLink has chosen Interactive Intelligence's (News - Alert) all-in-one IP communications software suite, Customer Interaction Center (CIC), for use throughout its organization,.

CTS LanguageLink will be replacing an Inter-Tel (News - Alert) phone system with Interactive Intelligence's CIC to take advantage of the system’s open, software-based, all-in-one architecture.

“We evaluated solutions from Avaya, Mitel (News - Alert), and others, but ultimately we selected CIC based on its cost-effective, flexible architecture,” said CTS LanguageLink director of information technology, Dan Nelson. “CIC will give us a competitive advantage by enabling us to modify the system on a moment’s notice. I estimate savings of about 30 percent in long-distance charges as a result of moving to a standards-based IP architecture.”

CTS (News - Alert) LanguageLink purchased CIC through Interactive Intelligence Elite Partner, KRP Communications USA. KRP, a unified communications solutions provider, will also assist CTS LanguageLink with training, deployment and customization of the CIC solution.

“KRP was knowledgeable about CIC and provided solid answers to our questions,” said Nelson. “KRP also arranged for a tour of its office, and a visit to the Interactive Intelligence western regional sales and support center in California. Afterward it was clear that Interactive and KRP worked closely together, which assured us that our post-deployment needs would be met,” he said.

CTS LanguageLink plans to use CIC for automatic call distribution, interactive voice response, supervisory monitoring, presence management, unified messaging, and more. It also purchased add-on applications for multichannel recording and scoring, and speech recognition.

“We anticipate CIC will help us improve customer service through improvements such as more quickly and effectively routing and responding to callers,” Nelson said. “CIC’s modular architecture will enable us to add users as we grow without undergoing major hardware upgrades.”

When the deployment is complete, CIC will support the entire CTS LanguageLink workforce located at its company headquarters in Vancouver, Wash., and at remote locations throughout the United States and Central and South America. A redundant system will also be installed at a second location in Portland, Oregon to provide disaster recovery capabilities.

Cost Savings or Customer Experience? It Doesn't Have to be a Choice

It's a simple fact - customers expect quality. They expect things to work. They expect not to have problems. That said, most accept they may encounter issues from time to time but, when they do, they expect quick and easy resolution. In other words, they expect your customer service to work. "Work," though, may mean very different things in terms of having appropriate resolution mechanisms in place, depending largely on the personal preferences of the customer. [ Read More ]
