Using Technology to Safeguard Continuity

Organizations planning their response need to look at two things – protecting their workers, and ensuring business continuity in the face of changing circumstances. As the world adapted to remote working, we looked at how a cloud contact center could support business continuity and be set up rapidly.

Rapid and Reliable Set Up

storm for Disaster Recovery

storm DRTM gives you an enterprise-grade home working solution within hours. storm is already trusted by thousands of organizations and hundreds of thousands of agents to deliver great customer experiences. storm DR can be implemented remotely, allowing your agents to continue providing excellent customer service from home, through a single, browser-based interface.

storm DR can be either installed as a complete, end-to-end cloud contact center solution, or layered over existing infrastructure, allowing contact centers of every kind to benefit from efficient homeworking functionality.

Full Compliance Regardless of Location

At the start of the COVID-19 crisis, many organizations had limited contingency plans, and were unprepared for a complete, rapid, move to homeworking. This meant that some features of the contact center were prioritized over others, in order to ensure that customers could continue making contact.

Amongst the functionalities missing in most home-working set-ups were those systems that ensure activities can be carried out in a compliant manner. This oversight leaves agents unable to discuss sensitive data over the phone, leaving some vulnerable customers exposed and limited by their options.

A prime example of lost functionality in contact centers is the ability to take PCI DSS Level 1 compliant payments over the phone. Without this, many organizations have been unable to take payments during voice interactions and instead refer customers to another method. This interrupts the flow and efficiency of the customer journey. When making payments over the phone, customers may need to quickly ask an agent small questions about the transaction before providing their details. When customers are required to pay over a different channel, they may have to queue again for agent attention in order to ask these questions, increasing caller wait time, and decreasing interaction efficiency.

In the below video, you can see how storm PADLOCKTM can help agents take fully compliant payments in one seamless interaction with customers.
