Groupon Italy had a basic telecom system and the Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) system it was using was limited and unreliable. They needed a system that was going to support growth and they needed to be able to administer it internally without difficulty. Any new service had to integrate all calls into Salesforce, maximise call efficiency and increase productivity. It also needed to generate business intelligence from voice communications for improved reporting. Overall Groupon wanted to ensure the productivity gains of any service outweighed its costs.
Groupon Italy implemented the Natterbox Voice Anywhere hosted PBX product and provided each user with Salesforce integration and a Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) component. The service runs over a logical internal network and the call policy design is handled by a cloud PBX service which is easily customised and updated.The Natterbox solution is tailored to Groupon’s exact needs and is able to meet all the requirements of a rapidly expanding company.
