Terry Gray Joins the Rostrvm Solutions Team

Rostrvm Solutions are delighted to welcome Terry Gray, who has joined the contact centre technology provider to help customers optimise their investment in rostrvm and achieve successful business outcomes.

Some of you may know Terry already and he certainly has the right experience to help.

He has worked in both the contact centre software sector and the broader telecommunications industry as it has transformed, driven by new technological advances.

Terry says: “I’ve worked for organisations with multichannel contact centres as part of their portfolio and, whenever I met a rostrvm customer, I knew that they couldn’t be persuaded to change supplier.

“The company and its solutions have a reputation for quality and reliability, so when the opportunity presented itself to work here, I jumped at the chance.”

Terry already knows about rostrvm as he used to be a call operator and trainer at BT when they used it to handle emergency calls. He has worked closely with NHS, Housing Association and Education clients.

A focus on end-users, customers and the right outcomes

Terry adds: “I think that, when discussing products and services with potential customers, too many business development executives focus on the features and benefits of their own proposition.”

“That’s important, but ultimately it’s about the people using the platform; they should be concentrating on delivering the outcomes needed to meet their business and customer requirements.”

In his global role, Armer is responsible for 8×8’s corporate-wide information security management activities, including compliance, strategic planning, governance, and controls.
