As a forward-thinking organisation, Futures Housing Group was keen to implement a new communications environment that would not just allow all staff to benefit from cutting edge mobility, collaboration and flexible working capabilities, but also extend multimedia functionality externally to enable better engagement with its customers and partners.
The chosen solution of Microsoft Skype for Business, with integrated Enghouse EICC contact centre enables communication and productivity improvements throughout the organisation via voice, email, instant messaging, video and desktop sharing/collaboration. Customers now have greater choices in how they communicate with Futures Housing, including telephone, e-mail, SMS, live webchat and via social media, supporting the Group’s vision to allow its customers to help shape and develop their products and services.
