SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- AltiGen Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN), the leading provider of integrated Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, today announced that Auxilion (www.auxilion.com) has deployed AltiGen's MaxACD contact center solution for Microsoft Lync. Auxilion is an innovative virtual support services provider that uses Microsoft cloud technology and a virtual workforce to deliver affordable, enterprise-quality business outsourcing solutions in the areas of IT support services, customer support and project support.
Auxilion recently replaced its aging Nortel Meridian phone system with Microsoft Lync, which provides a complete unified communications solution encompassing voice, video, IM, conferencing and desktop sharing. In addition, Auxilion needed a turn-key Microsoft certified contact center solution that included advanced call routing, agent monitoring/management, call recording and reporting for its virtual support services.
"As a global innovator in cloud-based IT support services built on Microsoft technology, the use of Microsoft Lync as our primary Unified Communications solution made absolute sense," said Graham Quinn, CTO at Auxilion. "In order for Auxilion to ensure the best level of service for our clients, we deployed AltiGen's state-of-the-art MaxACD contact center for Lync after evaluating a number of other contact center solutions. We needed a solution that was cost-effective, easy-to-use and manage, and future proof, allowing us to expand the system as needed according to our growth plans. AltiGen was the only solution that met all of our requirements."
Powered by AltiGen MaxACD, Auxilion's Virtual Service Desk is able to utilize advanced features like skills based routing and priority queuing to deliver best-in-class customer service and support. Skills-based routing allows callers to be identified and connected to the agent best qualified to provide support across Auxilion's virtual service center, and priority queuing allows Auxilion to offer different levels of support to different customer segments.
"Auxilion's Virtual Service Desk is innovative and unique," said Paul Fullman, AltiGen Vice President for EMEA. "We are delighted that MaxACD fits perfectly in Auxilion's Microsoft cloud architecture to allow the company to optimize its virtual workforce."
