Helping Southwark Council own the customer journey

Sabio has worked with Southwark Council to design and implement a powerful new Avaya-based multi-channel contact centre technology infrastructure to power the Council’s new in-house customer service centre.

Since its successful launch, the new in-house operation has unlocked major operational savings for the Council, while also enabling significant customer service improvements.

Operational Challenge

As part of its mission to improve customer service levels, the council commissioned a new contact centre in Peckham, recruited 40 additional customer services staff, and also invested in the latest contact centre technology.

Sabio Solution

Southwark Council selected Sabio to design and implement a comprehensive new contact centre and telephony infrastructure for its new customer service centre based on the latest Avaya Aura™ Contact Centre technology.
