Cairn Housing Association chooses Netcall for complete customer engagement 
Not-for-profit Scottish organisation partners with technology provider Netcall
to improve service delivery, using social media analysis and engagement
capabilities for the first time 
Netcall plc (AIM: NET), a leading customer engagement software provider, is
pleased to announce that it has signed a five-year agreement with Cairn
Housing Association ("Cairn") to manage the organisation's entire end-to-end
customer engagement process through the Netcall Liberty platform, including
the recently integrated social media capabilities. Cairn will overhaul the way
it interacts with customers, using Netcall's customer engagement suite to
engage via email, SMS messaging, web chat and social media integrated with
Customer Relationship Management ("CRM") software all through a single
interface. Using these new channels, Cairn aims to be a leader in service
delivery in the sector. 
Partnering with Netcall, Cairn's primary goal is to ensure that customers are
able to speak to a member of its team quickly and that as many queries as
possible are dealt with at the point of contact by employing measurable First
Contact Resolution techniques. The Liberty platform will simplify the way
customer interactions are managed, making responses faster and more efficient.
It will also integrate intelligence about each customer, ensuring that anyone
dealing with an enquiry has all relevant information at their disposal. The
comprehensive functionality contained in the Netcall Liberty platform enables
the organisation to implement remote working, so people can work from the most
appropriate location and business continuity is maintained in the event of
severe weather or other unexpected events. When carrying out home visits,
representatives will be able to resolve customer queries via mobile devices
and use reminder technology to reduce the amount of missed appointments. 
Jason MacGilp, chief executive, Cairn Housing Association, commented:"Cairn is
on a journey towards Customer Service Excellence and our contact centre
solution is a key part of that journey.  We are very pleased to be working
with Netcall on this strategic project. Our clear aim is that customers can
contact us, with absolute confidence, in whatever way is most convenient to
them, and to have their enquiry or service request dealt with minimum effort
on their part. We're also really excited about the possibilities of mobile
working and self-service in the future. 
"We anticipate that our new contact centre and partnership with Netcall is
going to revolutionise Cairn's approach to customer service. This ambitious
approach to managing our relationships with customers will increase customer
satisfaction and our efficiency, which will allow frontline members of staff
more time to get out into the community delivering services." 
Henrik Bang, CEO of Netcall commented: "This is a great example of a customer
combining multiple elements of the Netcall engagement suite, including CRM and
social media, to ensure its customers have best-in-class service delivery,
thereby increasing customer satisfaction while also improving internal
efficiencies. Our Liberty platform enables our customers to implement an
integrated multichannel customer engagement environment which can be managed
seamlessly with cutting-edge software and linked to process management
capabilities. We are delighted to be working with Cairn Housing Association,
providing the tools it requires to meet the evolving needs of its customers."
