Marconi Partners With [email protected] to Deliver a Hosted Contact Center Solution

Marconi 'Impact UltraContact' Will Enable Service Providers to Generate New Revenue Streams by Delivering a Hosted Contact Cente

LA JOLLA, Calif., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- [email protected], the market leader in software infrastructure for carrier-hosted contact center services, today announced a partnership with Marconi Corporation plc (LONDON: MONI) . Under the terms of the agreement, Marconi will deploy [email protected]'s hosted contact center application, CallCenterAnywhere, in conjunction with Marconi's Impact SoftSwitch to deliver Impact UltraContact, which will enable service providers to generate new revenue streams by offering a hosted contact center solution to small to medium enterprises (SMEs).

Marconi Impact UltraContact is a hosted software application that handles all interaction between customers and the business including telephone, web-chat and email. It can deliver all the features of a contact center including automatic call distribution, computer telephony interaction and interactive voice response; but as a hosted solution it does not require SMEs to make the expensive investment in time, money and expertise associated with rolling out a premises based contact center.

Impact UltraContact is hosted by the service provider and is essentially rented to SMEs who are charged a usage based fee or a monthly rental amount, ensuring that the service provider has an ongoing source of revenue.

"The partnership with [email protected] forms part of Marconi's ongoing strategy to partner with best in class companies to deliver applications which will help service providers to better serve their customers," explained said Kevin Hourigan, vice president of Marconi's SoftSwitch product group. "Impact UltraContact will help service providers fulfill the demands from SMEs to provide hosted voice applications, which have the same functionality as the most comprehensive contact center system but do not require a costly outlay, ongoing maintenance and upgrades."

"The partnership with Marconi will enable [email protected] to expand its market reach to new service providers, who are becoming increasingly important as both SMEs and larger organizations look to their service providers to supply value-added voice services," explained Eli Borodow, CEO of [email protected] "Marconi has expertise and relationships in this market and their customers are looking for exciting new applications that can provide customer value and generate additional income in managed and hosted services."
