AccountNow Answers the Prepaid Debit Card Call with VoltDelta's OnDemand Customer Care Platform

NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

AccountNow, Inc., one of the nation's largestĀ prepaid debit card companies, has upgraded its customer care platform with VoltDelta (News - Alert) to more quickly and effectively engage with their customers.

AccountNow has been able to deliver an enhanced customer experience with voice self-service and agent support since the VoltDelta deployment eighteen months ago. Over 90 percent of calls are successfully resolved in the automated system without requiring live agent interaction, allowing AccountNow agents to focus on customers in need of more specialized agent assistance.

"We selected VoltDelta over many others we considered because they can provide the infrastructure stability and massive scalability we need to support our customers," said Jenn Cordeiro, Director of Operations at AccountNow. "We needed a more robust infrastructure with the scalability to handle sudden and massive spikes in volume. The phone is sometimes the only way we can communicate with our customers, so the stability of that platform is crucial."

VoltDelta's scalable agent and automation hosted infrastructure was a key driver inAccountNow's customer care upgrade decision due to the ability to manage call fluctuations that occur in the prepaid industry as well as seasonal spikes in volume. Automation and agent integration inherent within the VoltDelta platform enhances AccountNow agent support with hosted intelligent call routing and queue management features.

A unique combination of IVR technology, voice user interface design expertise and virtual contact center infrastructure supporting massive call volume works "behind the scenes" to allow AccountNow to more effectively engage with their customers especially during heavy call volume days.

"AccountNow is a great example of how a company can leverage our cloud based customer experience platform to rapidly scale up to manage an ever increasing number of calls, including unexpected spikes," said Terry Saeger, SVP and GM of VoltDelta. "Over 2.4 billion calls per year are processed by VoltDelta's customer experience platform in North America alone, enabling AccountNow to take advantage of an established infrastructure proven capable of supporting their massive call volume requirements."
