Edify Signs 45,000-User Deal in Europe

CX company Edify recently completed a substantive call center and unified communications (UC) deal in which its new customer, a European telecom provider, will begin implementing the Edify platform for 45,000 call center agents.

Information on both the size of the deal and the identity of the European provider was not disclosed, but Cameron Weeks, co-founder and CEO of Edify, says the company was selected because its platform lives actively in multiple public clouds simultaneously while also offering a unique user experience (UX). That experience puts the interaction channel between call center agents and customers in one window alongside built-in artificial intelligence (AI), no-code workflows, coaching, recording, reporting, and UC capabilities—all functionality united within a single, cloud-native software solution.

Blair Pleasant, president and principal analyst at  COMMFusion, an independent consulting firm, says she has watched Edify closely from the beginning as it introduced a new approach to business communication with a single platform for contact center and UC, priced in a way that makes it easier for enterprises to manage. “This deal signifies that even the largest, most mission-critical environments are ready to evolve the way they interact with customers and with each other internally. It also validates Edify’s strategy of delivering a cloud-native global platform at significant scale.”

mParticle to Deploy CDP for Canada’s Recipe Unlimited

mParticle, the New York City-based customer data platform (CDP) company, is providing the cross-channel foundation for the digital transformation strategy of Recipe Unlimited, Canada’s largest full-service restaurant company.

For its part, mParticle will provide Recipe with the data infrastructure to manage customer databases, including issues related to privacy and security.

Freshworks Empowers Databricks to Deliver Enhanced EX

Employee experience (EX) and CX software provider Freshworks is helping fast-growth data and AI startup Databricks to support the tripling of its IT workforce, aimed at servicing more than 4,000 Databricks employees. Freshservice, the IT platform of Freshworks, plays a critical role in the new-hire onboarding and ongoing employee engagement support of Databricks, helping employees make the most of their work software.

Databricks deployed Freshservice in 2021 for the IT team to manage internal ticketing and employee IT requests. Freshservice automates responses for common inquiries so that IT professionals can shift their focus towards scaling their service management. Following a successful team-up, Databricks expanded its Freshservice deployment to provide enterprise service management (ESM) support within HR, legal, security, and other departments, enabling more efficient processes across departments within the company.

For companies with ambitious hiring plans, utilizing intuitive and easy-to-use software is imperative to recruiting and keeping employees happy, according to Freshworks. The recent findings from State of Workplace Technology, a Freshworks report, underscore deep employee frustration with workplace software, highlighting even more the need for simple, intuitive software to engage employees and IT professionals alike while also achieving fast time-to-value.
