PensionBee Selects Vonage to Transform Contact Centre Into a Hive of Innovation

January 23, 2020 GMT

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 23, 2020--

Vonage (Nasdaq:VG), a global business cloud communications leader, today announced that PensionBee is implementing its award-winning contact centre solution. PensionBee, which aims to take the sting out of pension management, will be able to better serve its growing customer base by delivering exceptional experiences.

PensionBee is a leading online pension provider, revolutionising the traditional pensions industry with a modern, mobile-based experience that enables customers to combine old pension pots into a single online plan – a BeeHive. Using the PensionBee app, which is built on Salesforce, customers can easily check their pot size, projected retirement income, and set up contributions in a few clicks.

With company values centered around ‘doing the right thing for customers’, PensionBee wanted to deliver the best possible experience to its 60,000+ active UK customers. Following an RFP process, the company selected Vonage’s cloud contact centre solution for its Salesforce integration, complete WebRTC, dynamic routing and reporting capabilities, together with its flexibility and scalability. Vonage also offers Conversation Analyzer, a powerful, integrated speech analytics technology, which can be added to the core solution.

Tess Nicholson, VP of Operations at PensionBee, comments, “We’re extremely pleased to be bringing the incredible combination of Salesforce and Vonage to PensionBee. Following a quick implementation, we now have a single, scalable cloud contact centre solution across our business, which will enable our teams to improve every interaction they have with customers.”

Built from a true cloud environment, Vonage’s contact centre solution integrates all communications channels without expensive, disruptive hardware changes and plugs straight into a business’s CRM platform. Salesforce integration is central to the solution, enabling businesses like PensionBee to create customer experiences that help them serve their customers better.

PensionBee’s customer service managers, known as BeeKeepers, and pension administration assistants (Nectar Collectors), will now benefit from immediate access to a customer’s entire history of interactions, and with Vonage’s dynamic routing capabilities, PensionBee can optimise performance by identifying callers who have previously made enquiries and routing them directly to the most appropriate BeeKeeper or assigning them higher priority in the queue – further improving handling time and customer satisfaction.

Jeremy Straker, SVP International Sales at Vonage, adds, “We’re delighted to have been chosen as an important partner of PensionBee, and helping the company deliver on its commitment to providing a unique and personalised customer service, while benefiting from complete flexibility and scalability as it continues its rapid growth. We look forward to seeing PensionBee enhance its customer satisfaction with our contact centre solution, as its BeeKeepers have great conversations through every interaction.”
