CHALLENGE

With their business growing quickly, OpenTech Alliance was not able to support their end-customers in the same capacity as they were accustomed to. They needed a customer support portal to better communicate with their growing customer base and invited Sona Data to take on the project.

SOLUTION

Sona Data dialed into their needs and created a unique customer support portal that could co-exist with their Cisco phone system, to optimize and organize incoming calls with an easy-to-use dashboard. The dashboard shared lead ties, service times, and other variables for the agent and caller. The portal distributed calls to specific agents, could auto load customer details based on an incoming phone number, and provided predetermined scripts for the agents. Each aspect of the portal was created to allow the support admins to manage the portal with ease after the installation was complete. After successfully implementing the portal, OpenTech Alliance hired additional support agents and were able to effectively keep up with their customer demands.
