Five9, a leading provider of the intelligent cloud contact centre, has formed a new strategic partnership with Mitel, a global leader in business communications. Mitel will now feature the Five9 Intelligent Cloud Contact Centre as its exclusive contact centre as a service (CCaaS) partner for its worldwide client base.
“Organisations across various industries and geographies rely on Mitel for their communication and collaboration needs and, for many of them, contact centre plays a critical role in the overall communications experience,” said Graham Bevington, Executive Vice President, Transformation Office at Mitel. “Five9’s intelligent cloud contact centre suite, strength in the enterprise market, and customer-centric values are a perfect complement to Mitel’s contact centre offering. We look forward to working closely with the Five9 team to help customers differentiate themselves through more human, empathetic customer engagement experiences, which are vital to building loyalty, trust and, ultimately, business success.”
Together, Five9 and Mitel will provide a holistic offering for organisations that value an integrated Contact Centre and Unified Communications solution as part of their overall collaboration and total experience strategy. Mitel’s global customer base and vast channel partner ecosystem will now have access to the full breadth of the Five9 product portfolio – including the core Five9 Platform, Workforce Optimisation (WFO), Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA), Agent Assist, and Workflow Automation (WFA).
“Changing customer expectations require organisations to find better ways to improve the customer experience, and a tightly integrated UCaaS and CCaas solution helps contact centre agents and subject matter experts throughout the organisation join forces to resolve customer requests quickly and efficiently,” said Blair Pleasant, President and Principal Analyst of COMMfusion LLC. “Integrating Five9’s best of breed CCaaS solution with Mitel’s cloud and on-premises communications solutions will benefit both channel partners and customers, improving the way employees communicate and collaborate without compromising the personalised, frictionless experience expected by consumers.”
The Five9 Intelligent Cloud Contact Centre enables organisations to engage with their customers across channels from digital to voice. It empowers agents and supervisors with AI and automation, helps close the loop with customers for more proactive customer experiences and enables the contact centre to be connected to the broader business and vice versa via an extensive network of integrations. These capabilities ensure that Five9 customers can continuously improve on, or in some cases completely reimagine, their customer experience. In all cases, customers are able to achieve tangible business results. The Five9 platform creates a distinct value proposition for Mitel enterprise customers and partners who want to increase agent productivity, be agile, boost revenue, and create customer trust and loyalty.
“As Five9 continues to accelerate our international business, aligning ourselves with partners proven to be leaders in their field and dedicated to innovation is crucial for mutual success,” said Dan Burkland, President, Five9. “We are excited to announce our partnership with Mitel as their exclusive cloud contact centre partner offering. Our integration is live today and customers are already experiencing the joint value of our combined solution.”
Mitel and Five9 were quickly able to go-live with a joint offering based on prior successes between the two companies. This was further supported by the Five9 partner program, which has developed over the past several years to include a robust rapid onboarding and expansion plan for new and existing partners. Overall, this partnership is another example of the continued investment in the North America and international partner ecosystem for Five9.
