Video: Five9 sees fast time to value with Remedyforce

Tony Sorenson, Senior Director of IT for Five9, describes the early wins in their Remedyforce implementation and how it positions them for growth. (5:39)

Business Challenge

Five9 handles more than three billion customer interactions annually for the 1,000+ clients that use its call center software. When those customers call for support, rapid response is a top priority. In 2014, the company was grappling with customer issues that required escalation to level-2 and level-3 support. Getting the right data through the support chain was a manual effort involving too much duplicate data entry. A small team was dedicated to keeping data synchronized across three different tools.

BMC Solution

Five9 engaged BMC premier partner Cloudaction to replace its outdated ticketing system with Remedyforce (now known as BMC Helix Remedyforce) to provide real-time, cross-team collaboration that would improve the customer experience. Remedyforce captures, tracks, and reports on incidents and makes data available to all support teams, regardless of location, time zone, or language.

Business Impact

Cloudaction leveraged its actionHub™ integration accelerator to create an enterprise solution that facilitates real-time collaboration across the enterprise: among agents using Salesforce.com Service Cloud, operations, people using Remedyforce, and developers using Rally Software.

  • Single-click escalation to the next support tier eliminates duplicate effort, saving time, increasing accuracy, and reducing resolution times.
  • Automated data flow and status updates across Service Cloud, Remedyforce, and Rally improved operational level agreements (OLAs) by 70% and saved four full-time equivalents (FTEs).
  • The ability to assess “the temperature of the customer,” visibility into SLAs and OLAs.

“Because Remedyforce runs natively on Salesforce, we have single authentication and out-of-the-box integration of accounts, contacts, users, workflow, and security. The actionHub was an advantage that Cloudaction provided to speed the delivery of the project.”
