The award was presented to the DXI and Sky teams at the SDI gala dinner hosted at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 22 April. The award was for the successful implementation of DXI’s EasyContactNow™ at Sky’s IT Service Desk. Part of Sky’s ‘Believe in Better’ philosophy, the deployment demonstrated within a very short period of time improved productivity, increased analyst efficiency and interoperability capabilities with existing systems . The intuitive EasyContactNow solution, which was introduced as a replacement for an on premise system, has enabled the service desk team of 30 to handle over 10,000 calls per month more efficiently, and deliver the high standard of support needed to meet the daily IT requirements of Sky’s 30,000 employees worldwide. Luca Pepere, DXI CEO commented; “We are thrilled to have won this prestigious award. We have worked very hard in partnership with the Sky team to ensure that we provide a flexible and adaptable solution that meets their business requirements. Since the implementation on the service desk, Sky has deployed EasyContactNow in a number of departments with diverse requirements.” Ian McKenzie, Sky IT Service Desk Manager , said; “We are delighted to see our hard work recognised with this SDI award. The decision to implement a new contact centre solution for the Service Desk was taken with some trepidation, however, it has paid dividends in terms of reducing our call response times and improving customer satisfaction.” Sharon Maslyn, DXI Sales Director added; “This is a prime example of how customer facing departments within large organisations can benefit from the versatility of an integrated cloud contact solution. By harnessing EasyContactNow and ContactAPI, service desks can boost productivity and deliver a seamless customer experience with an integrated solution leveraging all the business systems and assets.” EasyContactNow enables service departments of all shapes and sizes to provide a dynamic, reactive environment that responds to the ever changing needs of the business. -ends- NOTES TO EDITORS About SDI SDI is the leading professional body for everyone working in the IT service and support industry.
