AccountNow Answers the Prepaid Debit Card Call with VoltDelta's OnDemand Customer Care Platform
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
AccountNow, Inc., one of the nation's largest prepaid
debit card companies, has upgraded its customer care platform with
VoltDelta (News - Alert) to more quickly and effectively engage with their customers.
AccountNow has been able to deliver an enhanced customer experience with
voice self-service and agent support since the VoltDelta deployment
eighteen months ago. Over 90 percent of calls are successfully resolved
in the automated system without requiring live agent interaction,
allowing AccountNow agents to focus on customers in need of more
specialized agent assistance.
"We selected VoltDelta over many others we considered because they can
provide the infrastructure stability and massive scalability we need to
support our customers," said Jenn Cordeiro, Director of Operations at
AccountNow. "We needed a more robust infrastructure with the scalability
to handle sudden and massive spikes in volume. The phone is sometimes
the only way we can communicate with our customers, so the stability of
that platform is crucial."
VoltDelta's scalable agent and automation hosted infrastructure was a
key driver inAccountNow's customer care upgrade decision due to the
ability to manage call fluctuations that occur in the prepaid industry
as well as seasonal spikes in volume. Automation and agent integration
inherent within the VoltDelta platform enhances AccountNow agent support
with hosted intelligent call routing and queue management features.
A unique combination of IVR technology, voice user interface design
expertise and virtual contact center infrastructure supporting massive
call volume works "behind the scenes" to allow AccountNow to more
effectively engage with their customers especially during heavy call
"AccountNow is a great example of how a company can leverage our cloud
based customer experience platform to rapidly scale up to manage an ever
increasing number of calls, including unexpected spikes," said Terry
Saeger, SVP and GM of VoltDelta. "Over 2.4 billion calls per year are
processed by VoltDelta's customer experience platform in North America
alone, enabling AccountNow to take advantage of an established
infrastructure proven capable of supporting their massive call volume
