STL Communications has been named winner of the Best Enterprise Contact Centre Solution Award in the Comms National Awards, the UK’s flagship independent ICT industry awards programme judged by industry specialists
Witney based STL provides business telephone systems and hosted solutions along with broadband and mobiles to organisations across Oxfordshire, London and the UK. STL’s winning entry was based on the installation of a 200 live seat call centre telephone system for MCE in Northamptonshire. MCE installed a pure internet based solution with SIP trunks, a new Samsung IP phone handset for each agent with resiliency across their 2 sites.
Philip Donigan, STL’s Sales Director commented, “We were delighted to win this prestigious award which recognises the passion of the whole team here at STL, working together to both win and install this system. Although STL is not as large as some of the other providers we were up against, we can often be more flexible, more personal and more reactive and flexible which is reflected in the levels of service and support we offer.”
Philip adds, “The new phone system enables MCE’s agents to handle more calls and to do so more efficiently thanks to optimised call handling and routing. It also provides cost savings by transferring from ISDN to SIP trunks.”
STL received the award from TV presenter Gabby Logan at the Comms National Awards held at London’s Hilton on Park Lane Hotel. The 15th annual Comms National Awards was the most competitive in its history more than 190 entries.
