Teledata ICT, in collaboration with Collab Portugal, has introduced an IP-based software solution that offers full multimedia contact management across voice; video and instant messaging to the financial sector in Ghana.
It’s believed that the new solution, OneContact, will go a long way to enhance customer relations. Engineered using the SIP standard, it offers cutting edge contact center functionality without the hardware and software costs and implementation time frames associated with traditional PBX based proprietary solutions, says Teledata.
Speaking at a banking conference held in Accra, Carlos Vasconcelos from Collab Portugal noted that Ghana is the seventh country in Africa using this type of software.
He said the country’s financial sector is now positioned to competitive effectively with their counterparts in Europe, who are using the same software. He said the software gives customers the options as to who they want to talk to when they place a call.
“Customers usually call their banks to ask for some information or help with their accounts through traditional means such as e: mail and the telephone, which calls sometimes, have to pass through the receptionists and so on.”
But OneContact goes a step further to provide multiple multimedia cannels to reach the bank or your supplier without any intermediary and third party involvement.
The Managing Director of Teledata ICT, Gregory Eid, appealed to the banking sector to apply emerging technologies and practices that enhanced customer relations and guarantees utmost satisfaction.
According to him, Africa's banking industry is becoming increasingly competitive, therefore banks in the country needed to explore the available practices and technologies to better service their clients and swiftly attend to their concerns in a way that ensures maximum customer satisfaction.
