CardOneBanking Drives UK Expansion with ShoreTel UC
Monday, 22 February 2016
Online current account provider CardOneBanking has selected ShoreTel Unified Communications (UC) platform and ShoreTel Enterprise Contact Centre (ECC) from Incom Business Systems to support their UK expansion.
The solution supports the company’s UK growth plans by providing scalability, high availability, ease of use and the lowest possible total cost of ownership, and integrates fully with their existing Oaisys call recording application.
Prior to the ShoreTel deployment, CardOneBanking experienced regular system failures of its Avaya IP Office communications platform during busy periods, presenting a significant risk to business operations and the brand’s reputation.
With over 20,000 customers, including 4,000 SMEs, CardOneBanking wanted to deliver a personalised customer experience across all communication channels to enhance customer loyalty and improve competitive standing. The online payments business also had concerns about the accuracy of performance reporting for customer satisfaction and sales achievement.
The ShoreTel deployment supports all users including 40 call centre agents, and includes a wallboard solution that enables CardOne Banking to manage levels of demand and improve first call resolution rates and call waiting times. Incom integrated the new system with the Oaisys call recording application and provided new servers and Power over Ethernet (PoE) Local Area Network (LAN) switches to optimise system performance.
Andrew Phillips, Head of Technology and Development at CardOneBanking, comments, “Our number one priority is delivering a first-class customer experience to aid customer retention, brand loyalty and company growth. The ShoreTel platform enables us to do so across all our touchpoints while achieving operational efficiencies, greater collaboration and productivity. Thanks to Incom and ShoreTel, we can now offer a clearly differentiated, value-added service to our customers.”
Grant Counsell, Corporate Sales Director at Incom, comments, “The financial services sector is fiercely competitive and CardOne Banking needed an innovative solution to help them respond and meet the needs of their customers. By implementing ShoreTel UC and ECC, CardOneBanking has a more agile way of working and collaborating that is inclusive to its entire staff, offering them the opportunity to stand out from the crowd with service excellence and to also deliver transformational change across the business.”

As invaluable as we find email, there is nothing as simple as picking up the phone and calling a client or supplier.
Customers feel better too, knowing they can call and place an order, or get an update on a project. Despite dozens of new ways to connect and contact one another, phones are still an essential part of doing business. AlI-powered Facebook Messenger bots will never replace telephony-based customer service.
