Extra layer of intelligence for MultiNational Financial Institution

The Challenge

A multinational financial institution wanted to add an extra layer of intelligence into their call routing. With 2,700 inbound numbers on the Cisco ICM platform, they had the ability to group numbers not only by the number itself, but also by how they were terminated at one of their 16 locations.

The customer had 8 switches distributed between 2 different cities, each switch had 2 termination points giving a total of 16 possible target numbers.  Depending on which switches were being maintained, on occasion the customer needed to be able to toggle the calls being sent to these target numbers, controlled using a simple portal interface.

The  Solution

Invosys worked with the reseller and the customer to add this extra layer of intelligence.  We provided full consultancy to the reseller and the customer as well as joining regular meetings and conference calls throughout the planning, design, build and QA process.
