Challenge

Contact Solutions, Inc. is an interactive voice response (IVR) services provider that trims operational costs for contact center clients. As the company's toll-free usage reached 360 million minutes a year, managers looked for a provider who could deliver both volume discounts and stellar service.

Solution

Executives chose the CenturyLink Domestic Toll Free Service. Technicians implemented a DS-3 circuit at each of three sites to support 30 million minutes of inbound 800 call traffic per month. Administrators use CenturyLink Control Center to manage thousands of dialed number identification services (DNISes) in real-time.
