This month we bring you news from injixo, Bright UK, Business Systems, Magnetic North and Interactive Intelligence.
Interactive Intelligence awards grants to young people
The Interactive Intelligence Foundation has awarded approximately £156,000 ($225,000) in grants for 2016.
The 12 recipients will use the money to assist at-risk youth, both locally and throughout the world. The grants will be used for a number of purposes, including summer STEM education programmes, summer camp funding for economically challenged and visually impaired youth, a mobile STEM classroom, weekend food supplies for in-need youth and other hands-on learning programmes.
“We received 149 deserving grant applications, and only wish we could have said yes to them all,” said Joe Adams, Foundation President and Senior Product Manager at Interactive Intelligence. “To our recipients, we are grateful to help such worthy and diverse organisations, and hope these grants will create added opportunities for disadvantaged youth.”
injixo integrates with 8×8
injixo has established an integration with 8×8’s cloud-based Virtual Contact Centre (VCC).
The first customer to benefit is Swale Heating. The heating supplier has boosted customer satisfaction and improved productivity as a result of using injixo and replacing its in-house PBX system with 8×8.
“The combination of injixo WFM and 8×8’s VCC is very attractive to us, since both are cloud-based and procured as a service. We needed something that would work across the entirety of the business,” said Jamie Monk, Contact Centre Operations Manager at Swale Heating. “Now that we have the technology in place, I’m excited to see the positive feedback from our customers and employees.”
