• Competition from online and high street stores lead to intense pressure to reduce and manage costs.

  • Retailers must provide a consistently high experience across all channels – multiple stores, online and call centres.

  • Employees struggle answering calls while simultaneously assisting in-store customers.

  • Difficulty separating out calls about store hours and products. Old PBX systems make it hard to screen out calls from competitors collecting current pricing information.

  • A need for real-time communications across multiple sites.

  • Disparate PBX estates cost more to maintain and result in an inconsistent image.

  • In-store Wi-Fi can also be used by customers to research their desired products.

  • On-site cordless solutions can help in communications.




Improved customer service

  • A phone system  that reflects commitment to providing the best customer experience.

  • HD voice is crystal clear so cuts out mistakes based on lack of hearing the customer and calls are answered within a couple of rings.


Increased productivity

  • Group Call Handling and Unified Communications Apps on mobile devices, tablets and desktops help speed the flow of communications across a retail organisation.

  • Extending Cloud UC services to other organisations in a retailer’s supply chain speeds the communications flow across the entire value chain.


Consistent service experience

  • [PRODUCT NAME] enables a consistent image and service experience across all stores, e.g. retailers can provide the same on hold message to customers.



Rapid deployment means business as usual

  • Setting up the service and plugging the desk phones into a data network is quick and easy, ensuing the retailer can get on with serving customers.


Reduce costs

  • Consolidating the “voice estate” to a single provider has proven cost advantages.

  • Free calls between all staff and companies lowers the monthly telephone bill.
