““IPI have been one of our longest-standing technology partners, and over the past ten years, their support, knowledge and expertise have been invaluable. Not only has the team been able to comprehensively manage over 2,000 PBXs across a highly complex estate while maintaining a high level of engagement with us, but just as importantly, IPI’s integrity and values are aligned to our business success which goes a long way to strengthening our partnership.” ”Paul Kenyon, Connect Services Manager (Data & Voice)
““IPI has demonstrated to us once again why it leads the charge for both service and technology. When we needed to enable homeworking quickly, their team recommended and transitioned our agents from Avaya to Genesys Cloud within days, enabling us to continue servicing our customers without any business interruption. The solution has proven to be agile and intuitive and a massive success with our agents. The messaging capability enables them to support each other and help with customer queries while working remotely. The partnership between IPI and Genesys is an exciting one, and we look forward to driving increased benefit from the end to end solutions they offer.””Andy Cole, General Manager
“We offer a key service to the public in debt advice which can be extremely sensitive and with the impending impact of Covid19 we needed to protect our workforce and still provide this essential service to the public. We also needed to ensure our call routing IVR system was still utilised. IPI were excellent in understanding our priorities and very quickly worked in partnership with my team to deliver and configure an AVAYA remote working solution within 48 hours. The extra effort and attention from IPI to insure we were able to continue providing our service from 173 advisers all working remotely and no disruption or changes to our IVR call flow gave us comfort and allowed us to focus on the other priorities in our business.”Martin Nall – Head of IT, Money Advice Trust
“Out of all the technology partners in the market it was IPI that impressed us the most with their extensive knowledge of Avaya, highly responsive support services and guidance around deploying the latest digital technologies. IPI’s innate understanding of what makes a contact centre tick and how to optimise operations to obtain the best business benefits have been fundamental to our long-lasting partnership.”Martin Nall – Head of IT
““We have real confidence in IPI’s ability to deliver on their solutions, they really make an effort to understand our goals and objectives so we know we are in safe hands. IPI has continually impressed with their teamwork, communication and co-operative approach, not to mention top-class, innovative solutions. IPI’s longstanding partnership with Avaya together with their insights and expertise have been invaluable to our business and we look forward to working together to deliver excellence for our employees and patients, and building a long and trusted relationship with IPI.””Charlie Barrett, Telecoms & Infrastructure Manager

“At Hodge Bank, we were in the early stages of procuring a new Contact Centre solution that would meet our requirements, which included the ability for agents to work remotely. However, we needed to expedite that process once the UK Government had issued the lockdown instruction to ensure that we could continue to deliver excellent service to our customers, as the legacy Contact Centre solution we had deployed had very limited features for Remote Agent working. IPI were able to rapidly showcase the full benefits that a Genesys Cloud solution could deliver which provided increased functionality and flexibility, while providing confidence in terms of delivery timelines and ease of implementation. The initial engagement to solution deployment lasted 2 weeks in total and we are delighted with both the deployed solution and, importantly, the strategic partnership that has been built between our respective organisations.”Jonathan Evans, Technology Transformation Manager
“We continue to be very excited with the IP Integration partnership as they work closely with our Genesys teams delivering on our collective mission of delivering exceptional customer contact through the Genesys Cloud solution.

“We thought this type of speech analytics exercise was not going to meet our expectations because we’d been let down by previous attempts. But this was so much more than speech analytics. It went above and beyond by analysing the full contact between the agent and customer, uncovering more than just speech, and providing insight for us to unlock and understand – and take action upon.”Anglian Water
