Enhance student experiences with ComputerTalk's ice Contact Center

Save Staff Time With Automated Notifications

A school board used an inefficient manual notification system that required staff to call parents individually to notify them of school shutdowns, lockdowns, snow days, and absenteeism. The process was time-consuming and used resources that could be focused on education-related tasks. When the school board started using ice’s outbound campaign tools, they could quickly and easily send out automated messages by grade, school, region, and more. This saved staff time and allowed parents to learn important updates regarding their child’s school far sooner than they had with manual calling.

Reduce Wait Times With Speech Recognition and IVR

A college’s contact center often experienced long wait times that frustrated busy students and prospective students looking for information. When the college moved to ice Contact Center, they implemented an IVR and speech recognition solution that allowed callers to gain access to information about hours, location, registration, financial assistance, and more, without waiting to speak to a live agent. With this application in place, agents could respond to calls requiring special attention, decreasing response time and maintaining efficient operations.

Reduce Costs by Migrating to Microsoft Teams

An academic institution relied on a costly on-premises solution to connect with students, parents, alumni, and faculty. The solution cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in analog phones and their supervisors could not evaluate their agents' or contact center's performance due to limited reporting capabilities. With ice Contact Center and Microsoft Teams, they saved money on phone lines, and their supervisors could generate customizable reports to effectively track performance and guide strategic decision-making to ultimately improve their overall services.
