For the Eduka Group, which runs four colleges in Puerto Rico and Florida, switching to Nexogy's cloud-based phone system in 2011 and later integrating their call center has enabled them to support 13,000 faculty and students, while also handling all the recruiting of new students in one phone system. The institutions served by Eduka Group are Instituto de Banca y Comercio (IBC), National University College (NUC), Ponce Paramedical College (POPAC) and Florida Technical College (FTC).
In 2015, Eduka plans to add 1,900 employees to communicate between locations in Puerto Rico and Florida. Expanding the number of phone lines in this way is easy to do with a cloud-based phone system, which allows unlimited expansion to unlimited locations.
Complex Systems at a Fraction of the CostA complex phone system is needed to serve thousands of people over multiple locations and handle several completely different functions. The cloud-based system Nexogy has implemented for the Eduka Group has the needed features to handle recruiting new students, support for the inter-college online program, and support for the student and faculty needs of four different post-secondary institutions, each in a different location with a different academic focus, and even with different primary languages.
Next step: Contact Nexogy today to find out how the many features of cloud-based phone systems can help your business accomplish its goals.
One System, Many BenefitsThe phone system used by Eduka Group has offered great benefits for the colleges that use it. Calls are automatically routed to the person most available to answer, reducing on-hold and wait times. Calls are recorded so that they can be retrieved later to comply with government regulations on quality assurance and legal protection. Recorded calls can also be used as training tools to identify best practices and train new employees.
Reporting features can identify such cost-cutting variables as forecasting volumes so that staff can be decreased during slower hours, and identifying agents' productivity in order to help increase productivity when necessary. These reports are web-based and can be used on any web browser for easy access and availability.
This phone system can work for companies with work-from-home staff as well as staff in many different locations. If call volume gets too high, Nexogy's smart rules will automatically send overflow calls to voicemail or other employees. Nexogy's system even allows companies to select customized music and create on-hold messages so that when calls do need to be put on hold or transferred to voicemail, there is still a personal touch.
Next step: Whether your company is just getting started or is large and complex, Nexogy has a phone system solution that will meet all your current and future needs. Contact them today to find out how to take your business to the next level.
Carlos Lahrssen is president of Nexogy.
