Commenting on the contract win, George Mair, Journeycall’s Group IT Manager, said: “At Journeycall we’re committed to improving the service we offer to our customers, which means continually investing in our business infrastructure to deliver best practice services for our customers. Having researched a range of different hosted contact centre solutions, it was clear that Sabio is the best option for our business. With On Demand Sabio not only exceeded our technology requirements, but the company’s services will also ensure that our core customer experience platform keeps Journeycall at the forefront of customer engagement innovation. Sabio’s On Demand solution for Journeycall combines a comprehensive voice capability for the company’s 150 contact centre agents, as well as full webchat and email support. Sabio is also providing automated IVR (Interactive Voice Response) and speech-enabled IVR functionality, as well as Semafone’s certified PCI-DSS solution to enable secure credit and debit card payments over the phone.

“Journeycall works with major transport operators and cities to design and deliver service propositions that exceed customer expectations at every interaction, so it was imperative for us to select a supplier that could work alongside the Journeycall team as a long-term technology partner,” continued George.

Paul Brassington, Sabio’s Principal Solutions Manager said: “With Sabio On Demand Journeycall has an agile and scalable customer experience platform in place that can evolve to support the company’s changing client requirements.”
