Arco Selects RingCentral for New National Customer Engagement Center
Inc. (NYSE:RNG), a leading provider of global enterprise cloud
communications and collaboration solutions, today announced that its
wholly owned subsidiary, RingCentral
UK, Ltd., has been selected by Arco,
the UK's leading safety company, as the foundational technology for its
new National Customer Engagement Center. RingCentral's (News - Alert) Contact Center
solution will be deployed as part of an ongoing Arco strategy of
business investment with the aim of moving toward agile cloud
infrastructure and process.
Contact Center™ is an omnichannel solution that helps
Arco's customers choose their preferred method of communicating,
including voice, chat, social media, SMS, email and more. The platform
includes intelligent interactive voice response (IVR) and self-service
options that are tightly integrated with smart routing functionality.
Those features are designed to help customers connect more quickly to
the adviser who can best handle their needs. It also includes
industry-leading tools to help Arco optimize staff scheduling, improve
contact center efficiencies and generate surveys for customers.
"RingCentral offers us a best-in-class unified communications platform
that will help us to continue delivering exceptional customer service
across more communication channels," said Sacha Redmn, Customer
Experience Director for Arco. "This project is part of a wider $40.8
million program of investment within our Digital First initiative
that will ensure we are continually meeting our customer expectations
when it comes to the selection and delivery of the right safety
equipment and related services."
The new Arco National Customer Engagement Center in Hull, East
Yorkshire, England, will be staffed by customer service specialists who
will manage sales inquiries and orders while also supporting customers
with product advice and order-tracking.
"Arco offers a great example of a forward-thinking business that has
embraced the omnichannel approach to customer engagement that encourages
customers to interact via the method they feel most comfortable with,"
said Steven Rafferty, Regional Vice President of Enterprise Sales, EMEA
at RingCentral. "The upcoming RingCentral Contact Center deployment
provides an open and flexible platform that will help Arco to adapt to
modern retail imperatives and enable innovative new technologies such as
AI and bots."
The full deployment of RingCentral Contact Center is expected to go live
at the new Arco National Customer Engagement Center in July this year.
