IPI becomes the UK’s first client-facing Avaya partner to receive accreditation, which will help more organisations migrate their contact centre operations to the cloud

21 February 2024, LondonIPI, the Contact Centre specialist and solutions provider, today announced that it has been accredited with the new Avaya Experience Platform cloud specialisation. As the first client-facing Avaya partner to receive this accreditation in the UK, IPI is in the ideal position to help organisations migrate their contact centre operations to Avaya’s feature-rich, cloud-based platform.

Avaya Experience Platform empowers organisations to access omnichannel voice and digital channels – as well as AI and other cloud-based capabilities – while leveraging their existing on-premises infrastructure for voice routing, call handling, and more.

This cloud specialisation reflects IPI’s ability to sell, design, deploy and manage the Avaya Experience Platform, while it also recognises its developer capabilities. An Avaya Diamond Partner, IPI is Avaya’s longest serving top tier partner in the UK, with a relationship than spans more than 20 years.

Further strengthening this partnership, IPI has also announced that its SIP trunking service, IPI SIP Connect, has been integrated into the Avaya Experience Platform and is now available to all platform users. IPI SIP Connect provides Avaya cloud users with a flexible way to extend and manage their voice networks, efficiently connecting customers as well as remote and office-based agents to the platform, to ensure the best possible customer and employee experience. Leveraging multiple upstream carriers and including disaster recovery and network call control capabilities, this highly-resilient service has been designed to minimise downtime and prioritise voice quality.

“IPI has deep experience of Avaya contact centre environments together with a tremendous track record of steering companies through complex digital transformation programmes,” said Alison Hastings, Senior Director and Channel Leader for Avaya UK and Ireland. “This latest partner accreditation and voice service integration reflect IPI’s position at the very forefront of the UK contact centre industry and we are excited to see how this latest chapter in our relationship progresses.”
