Dubai-based Focus Point Selects Smartworld Cloud Customer Engagement Solutions
Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE); May 18th; 2015 – Altitude Software, a global provider of omnichannel solutions to deliver great customer experiences, today announced that Smartworld, has selected Altitude uCI solutions to launch the first Cloud Customer Engagement Solutions in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Smartworld is a joint venture between Etisalat and Dubai World Central. The company is one of the emerging technology companies with an impeccable track record of developing and delivering cutting-edge digital solutions in the region.
Enabling UAE companies to focus on customer service while reducing costs
The new Smartworld Cloud Customer Engagement solutions bring to market a high value-added offering, enabling companies in the UAE to focus on customer service while reducing costs and optimizing resources. Hosted within Smartworld data center at Dubai World Central, these are completely customizable solutions that can be up and running within a matter of hours with little to no capital investment. Contact Centers operations are able to scale up or down based on demand, while optimizing resources and saving time and money. Free from IT and communications operational tasks, contact centers can focus on their core business relationships to become more productive and competitive.
"Nowadays in the UAE, a vast majority of contact centers are internal. There are large numbers of companies who are unwilling to outsource all or part of their customer relationships and want to keep control of their customer relationships while not wanting to manage a call center's administrative and technological constraints. It is this type of organizations that we target through this cloud-based solution, offering the same quality of service and the same performance, while allowing companies to retain control of their customer relationships. Our expertise both in IT and CRM, combined with our Data Centre expertise allows us to master all the components of this offer," says Mohammed Fouz, CEO of SMARTWORLD.
CRM Outsourcer Selects Smartworld Cloud Customer Engagement Solutions
One key contract won by Smartworld is with Focus Point, the first and only UAE-owned contact center outsourcing services provider with a strong specialization in live telephone interviewing and feedback management services.
‘’Our goal is to provide our customers with the highest quality interviewing and feedback management services, at the most cost effective rates in UAE,’’ commented Youssef Ben Beshoosh, Focus Point President & Co-Founder. "Selecting Smartworld Cloud Customer Engagement Solutions as a key component of our contact center operations reaffirms our commitment to incorporating the best technology available to service our customers and, ultimately, drive our contact center outsourcing business to new heights," added Beshoosh.
