BT will now offer the Five9 Intelligent CX Platform to new and existing customers as a managed service to help them fully digitalise their workplace through tighter integration with existing voice, digital channels, unified communications and customer relationship management (CRM) systems.
The integration of the cloud-native Five9 Intelligent CX Platform with BT’s secure, expansive and reliable Global Managed Voice platform offers customers an end-to-end managed service, cloud migration expertise and access to BT’s extensive experience and capabilities in managing complex technology environments.
“Our Five9 partnership offers BT customers a secure and future-proof route to migrate their contact centre into the cloud,” said Andrew Small, managing director, global portfolio, Business, BT.
BT’s Inbound Contact Global platform supports inbound voice services worldwide, with physical access nodes in over 45 countries, originations from over 180 countries, and terminations to anywhere in the world. Its cloud contact centre services are supported by resilient global Contact Hubs offering a wealth of experience in customer experience transformation. BT’s Inbound Contact platforms serve over 55,000 customers globally, and more than 16 billion minutes of calls per year. Over 65,000 agents use it worldwide.
“BT and Five9’s combined expertise will help customers manage the transition seamlessly and enjoy the full benefits of a managed CCaaS service.”Andrew Small, BT
The expanded partnership builds on an existing agreement between BT and Five9. In November 2022, Five9 named BT its strategic carrier for voice and network services globally. This enables Five9 to expand into new markets and offer its global customers a service with improved call quality.
BT customers can now choose from a range of Five9 options including digital engagement channels, analytics, workflow automation and optimisation, along with practical AI to engage and empower their contact centre agents. In addition, Five9 offers pre-built call centre integrations with leading CRM solutions, including Salesforce, ServiceNow, Microsoft, Oracle and Zendesk.
BT will also offer access to Five9’s artificial intelligence (AI) and automation solutions, including Five9 Intelligent Virtual Agent (IVA), which are embedded in the platform. These solutions can help automate processes and manage routine calls, while automatically providing agents with caller details to improve efficiency.
“Enterprises now have access to Five9’s leading Intelligent CX Platform seamlessly embedded with BT’s world-class voice and data services to create more fluid experiences for their customers," said Jake Butterbaugh, SVP Global Partner at Five9.
