Veridian Solutions Expands Verint Workforce Optimization and Speech Analytics in the Cloud in Australia
SYDNEY and MELVILLE, N.Y., September 14, 2015 — Veridian Solutions, an Australian business solutions provider with deep integration capabilities specializing in contact center solutions, today announced that it is offering the Verint® Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNT) suite of workforce optimization and speech analytics solutions in the cloud for customers in Australia.
Veridian Solutions is a long-standing software development partner for Verint in Australia with a track record of successful deployments in private, public and third sector organizations. In providing further support in the cloud, the company will now host its Verint cloud solutions within Fujitsu data centers based in Sydney and Melbourne. These provide world-class facilities and offer carrier independent, high-bandwidth access within secure and resilient environments.
Veridian Solutions’ workforce optimization suite powered by Verint includes applications such as quality management and call recording, workforce management, performance management, desktop and process analytics, coaching and elearning, as well as speech analytics.
Veridian has expertise in offering in-depth cloud solutions with more than a decade of experience in providing managed services for contact center infrastructure customers. Of particular benefit to users today is Veridian’s technical experience in integrating complementary solutions with Verint and in driving operational-level business value in business process optimization and interaction management optimization.
“We are now able to take Verint’s market-leading, tier one workforce optimization solutions and offer integration advantages for a new market of companies that aspire to have these technologies but could not necessarily have afforded them in the past. In particular, Veridian Cloud Workforce Management powered by Verint simplifies the complex task of forecasting and scheduling, provides performance management and elearning capabilities, and eliminates the expense and administrative burden of thick-client solutions. In addition, we’ll be offering speech analytics as a service, enabling organizations to seamlessly record their data and act on the findings for real-time decision making,” says Jason Hewett, general manager, Veridian Solutions.
The Frost & Sullivan Australian Unified Communications (UC) Market 2014 forecasts that by 2020, revenue contribution from hosted and cloud-based solutions will be close to that of on-premise solutions. Notes Audrey William, head of research, ICT Practice, Australia & New Zealand, Frost & Sullivan, “The hosted and cloud-based models allow vendors and channel partners to address the market directly by provisioning UC solutions from their own data centers.”
Adds Michael Stelzer, vice president, Australia and New Zealand for Verint Enterprise Intelligence Solutions™, “We’re pleased not only to be working with Veridian’s highly-skilled team but also to have the opportunity to work with an organization with a strong DNA in the contact center space. It has a refreshing and dynamic approach in customizing solutions to meet the individual needs of clients, making it a well-suited partner to help meet customer requirements and further the availability of our cloud-based contact center solutions in the market.”
Veridian Solutions’ customers that leverage Verint technology include such leading public and private sector organizations as the Australian Red Cross Blood Service, MYOB and the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria.
