Multinational technology company replaces Avaya with Talkdesk cloud solutions

A world leader in business and consumer technology moves help desk customer service to Talkdesk Enterprise Contact Center Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, November 19, 2018 — Talkdesk, the enterprise contact center platform and fastest growing Contact Center as a Service provider, today announced a global technology leader, and one of the world’s largest employers, selected Talkdesk to power their worldwide help desk customer service operations. Seeking a dynamic and agile answer to their static and aging on-premises system from Avaya, the company will leverage the Talkdesk Enterprise Contact Center Platform to improve the customer journey and experience.

“Enterprises of all sizes, including this customer with nearly 400,000 employees worldwide, are moving to the Talkdesk cloud in order to meet their customers’ rapidly changing needs and escalating expectations,” said Tiago Paiva, CEO of Talkdesk. “The cloud allows enterprises to offer the flexible customer service solutions needed to forge a stronger bond with their customers and generate long-term brand loyalty through a customized, intelligent and thoughtful approach to meeting their most critical help desk needs.”

Frustrated by long wait-times involved with making simple changes, Talkdesk’s latest enterprise customer will utilize the “clicks, not code” approach to adjust and fine-tune help desk operations to better serve their customers. Self-service administration of Talkdesk makes platform administration easy to manage and execute through Studio, with adjustments taking effect in minutes rather than weeks. The company will also look to the broad business intelligence available through real-time Reporting and Analytics to monitor the pulse of their contact center and improve its performance through comprehensive data.

A final differentiator for Talkdesk was its unmatched reliability, performance and dedication to ensuring customer success. The company recently announced in November to the contact center industry’s first 100% uptime service level agreement (SLA), setting a new industry standard for platform reliability.
