Annually, Edenred Portugal manages more than one hundred thousand telephone interactions, which generates about a quarter of a million interactions with the customer management system. This complexity required searching for a solution that would allow the optimization of processes and relationships with customers and partners and, at the same time, allow optimization of costs.
Marco Costa, General Manager of Talkdesk for EMEA, said, “Relying on Edenred in our customer portfolio confirms the quality of our solutions, which are experienced by a growing number of large companies. The confidence that Edenred is placing in our team is a result of the work we do every day and the added value our solutions guarantee to our customers.”
This is the first partnership between Talkdesk and Vodafone and its success opens the door to future businesses between these two companies that excel at innovation. “The Edenred project has created synergies between Talkdesk, where the best solutions for contact centers are developed, and a telecommunications giant in Portugal and throughout Europe, such as Vodafone. We are very excited about the products that can arise from this synergy,” added Costa.
