Leading Dutch communications provider KPN and award-winning customer engagement provider Content Guru have announced the renewal of their storm® partnership for another five-year period.
Since 2012, the storm platform has been KPN’s cloud contact center solution of choice across the Benelux, delivering a signature blend of highly-scalable, multi-channel contact routing and Communications Integration™ to enable existing information systems to interoperate. Through the partnership, some 100 clients now use the platform in the region, including world-leading brands such as Chubb, Fleurop Interflora and Sodexo.
The contract renewal will see KPN and Content Guru build on their existing cloud contact centre portfolio and introduce new and upcoming storm capabilities into the Benelux market, such as advanced WFM (Workforce Management) integration, additional WebRTC-based solutions and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Michael van den Brink, Country Manager for Content Guru Benelux, said:
“It has been a very successful first five years with storm in the Benelux. The relationship enables us to work together to quickly deliver new technologies and capabilities needed by customers in the region. The rapid deployment combined with the rich functionality and scalability of the platform gives us a strong position in the market, and we are excited about this close working relationship.”
