NewVoiceMedia, the leading provider of true cloud contact centre and voice solutions, today announced a total annualised order intake of $1.6m for the first quarter of 2012, in comparison with $0.4m for the same period of 2011. This four fold increase from 2011 to 2012 is due to a large rise in customer numbers as well as technological development and the strengthening of NewVoiceMedia’s team, following investment from Notion Capital and Eden Ventures.
Customers in total have increased by 40 per cent, with big name brands such as Cunningham Lindsay, one of the largest loss adjusting and claim management companies in the world, and Lumesse, a global leader in integrated talent management solutions, all taking advantage of NewVoiceMedia’s ContactWorld service. This surge in new customer wins is a direct result of the company’s investment into providing technology that revolutionises the customer experience throughout sales, marketing and customer service functions.
In the last year, NewVoiceMedia has launched 60 new features to its service. One such release was a PCI DSS accredited mid-call IVR service that enables agents to take card payments securely from customers by transferring them to an agent free IVR service. The company has also been pioneering ground-breaking patents, one of which allows calls to be routed to the most appropriate agent based on data held in company owned cloud CRM systems and data from public sources.
Jonathan Gale, CEO of NewVoiceMedia added, “NewVoiceMedia continues to go from strength to strength using our resources to leverage our unique position as the only true cloud contact centre solution. We’ve clearly identified an issue in the customer experience market that we’re fulfilling for customers across the globe. Voice is still the preferred channel for over 80% of communication between businesses and their customers yet its development has seriously lagged behind other channels such as the web. We intend to revolutionise how businesses interact with their customers over the phone, from the moment a sales call comes in through to aftercare and customer support.
“It’s great to see that it’s not just our own growth that proves we’ve been penetrating the customer experience market. Our commitment to innovation has been recognised in prestigious industry awards, such as Red Herring, where we were named one of the top 100 technology innovators in Europe. We’re already aiming to improve on this growth and recognition and our first quarter has set us up perfectly for an outstanding year.”
Following the recent £2.5 million investment from Notion Capital and Eden Ventures, NewVoiceMedia has continued to demonstrate its commitment to both development and security during the quarter by obtaining ISO27001 certification as well as gaining PCI DSS Level 1 accreditation, which enables secure payments to be made during a phone transaction.
NewVoiceMedia’s cloud security and compliance innovations are working towards creating an improved trust with customers, which is essential for a true cloud vendor. These innovations, coupled with NewVoiceMedia’s commitment to trust and excellence, showcased in its live Trust Centre, is leading the way amongst its competitors.
