  • (1888PressRelease) October 11, 2013 - This is the second Lync 2013 Qualification that Geomant has announced, following successful testing of its Call Recorder solution for Lync in September.

    The Microsoft Lync ISV Qualification Program allows Independent Software Vendors to have their solutions independently tested against a rigorous test plan.

    "Organizations can really benefit from deploying solutions, such as Geomant's Contact Expert, that deliver the benefits of Lync in a contact center environment." said Jon Morrow, Senior Program Manager for Lync Partner Engineering at Microsoft. "Contact Expert was one of the initial contact center applications to be qualified for Lync, and we are delighted that Geomant has taken this solution through the current qualification program to demonstrate its interoperability now with Lync Server 2013."

    Wintec - one of New Zealand's largest Institutes of Technology/Polytechnics, and an early adopter of Lync 2013, has deployed Geomant Contact Expert for its Student Enrolment & Information Centre as well as its IT Services Desk. Nichola Haira is the ITS Service Manager. "Providing excellent Customer Services is very important to the organization" commented Haira, "so it was very important to be able to deliver that functionality on Lync. The Geomant solution has allowed us to do that and enabled our contact center agents to use Lync collaboration during calls, to deliver a better service to our students and other stakeholders".

    The Longhurst Group is a UK business delivering high quality housing and care solutions, with more than 17,900 homes across the Midlands and East of England. It has been using Microsoft Lync and Geomant's Contact Expert contact center solution since 2011. Iain Burnley, Head of Infrastructure at the Longhurst Group commented "We are pleased that Geomant continues to invest in Contact Expert, and in particular that it has demonstrated Lync 2013 compatibility, as this gives us confidence that the solution will meet our future requirements as we look to upgrade Lync and enhance the services we provide to our customers".

    Geomant's Contact Center solution, Contact Expert, delivers rich multi-media, inbound and outbound functionality that works seamlessly with Microsoft Lync. It is one of the most widely deployed Lync Contact Center solutions currently available.

    "We are proud to have been one of the first qualified Lync Contact Center solutions, and to have successfully deployed Lync Contact Centers to organizations across the globe" said Kevin Ross, Geomant's Product Director. "Microsoft Lync 2013 is being adopted as an enterprise communications platform by an increasing number of organizations, and they can achieve huge benefit in deploying complementary business applications, such as Contact Expert". "Our software embeds the collaboration and communication capabilities of Lync within the contact center, allowing organizations to radically improve their first-line resolution rates, and improve customer satisfaction".
