Read about innovative approaches by some of Contact Canvas’s global customers.
Canon Financial Services, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc. founded in 1979 to support the sale of Canon products by providing lease financing solutions to Canon customers.
Canon Financial Services was in need of a system to give their agents truly blended capabilities and to replace their legacy system in order to handle case management and email routing. Integrating Salesforce and Avaya using Contact Canvas allowed contact center managers to better manage agent channel assignments based on contact center volume. “The omni-channel integration from a feature stand point and the single user interface for all channels were the biggest differentiators because none of the other products had that. AMC stuck with us – they over delivered,” said Michael Kea, IT Senior Manager for Canon Financial Services. The organization showed the largest benefits in their increase in agent efficiency, decreased average call handling and call disposition times, as well as training time needed for agents.

Additionally, sales managers have more real-time and accurate call data, offering opportunities to impact today’s performance. It has been an effective tool to optimize agent and lead performance,” stated Colleen Oliverio, Director of Strategic Alliances for Carnival.

Gill Katz, CIO of Colombil Corp stated, “Increased call center agent utilization, increased accuracy both in incoming call handling process and caller data updating. Those two effects increased caller satisfaction and reduced call center agents stress and attrition.” The solution has kept agents focused and working within the CRM instead of bouncing between applications.

CPS Energy, a long time AMC Technology customer since 2001, did not have to worry about seeking another integration product to connect their telephony platform with SAP.

Product Manager of Novo Nordisk.
