Personal Paraguay mobile operator selects Alcatel-Lucentís advanced IP Contact Center solution to deliver personalized customer service


Leading Paraguay mobile operator Nucleo has chosen Alcatel-Lucentís IP Contact Center solution (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) to drive increased customer satisfaction for the users of its Personal Paraguay mobile telephony service. Based on the Alcatel-Lucentís OmniPCX platform and OmniGenesys Contact Center, this solution offers responsive, secure and reliable personalized communications for customers through round-the-clock access, SMS or e-mail interaction, real-time and historic custom statistics, work force forecast, and voice portal services.

The new comprehensive solution, which will enhance the customer experience, includes a new IP telephony infrastructure, IP phones and software for softphones, an industry leading contact center based on Genesys Laboratories technology, including the Genesys Voice Platform, Genesys Workforce Management, and Genesys 7.x Customer Interaction Management Framework, and Alcatel-Lucent services including project management, consulting, installation, commissioning, software integration and maintenance.

ďPersonal Paraguay handles more than 1,300,000 customer transactions a month for its Personal Paraguay services. It was important for us to find a solution that would deliver faster linkage of people, processes and resources for our more than 280 customer service representatives to provide global service to our customers,Ē said Mario Bort, IT manager of Personal. ďThe Alcatel-Lucent OmniGenesys solution delivers uniform communications features and capabilities across branch offices and remote locations so we can extend our operations and increase agent productivity using outbound and inbound screen pops and decrease manpower costs using workforce management forecast tools.Ē

ďThis deployment with Personal Paraguay enhances Alcatel-Lucentís presence as a key supplier of IP contact center solutions. The new contact center service is pure IP. In addition to moving all internal voice traffic into IP trunks, we will be deploying Alcatel-Lucent IP telephones. It will be full voice over IP straight to the desktop,Ē said Olivier Picard, President of Alcatel-Lucentís activities in Europe and South. ďOur shared approach to managing the converged system has been very successful. Personal Paraguay handles all of the network performance management, moves, additions and changes, and Alcatel-Lucent Global Services takes care of the implementation and upgrades for voice servers, IVRs, and contact center applications.Ē
