Tata Communications launches InstaCC Global™, a cloud-based Contact Centre as a Service (CCaaS) on Cisco’s Hosted Collaboration Solution framework

Cloud contact centre as a service provides up to an estimated 30% TCO* savings for global businesses

Orlando – March 16, 2015
Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of CommunicationsTM, today announces the launch of InstaCC GlobalTM, a true cloud platform for multi-channel contact centre services, powered by Cisco® Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS).

One of the first deployments of its kind, the InstaCC GlobalTM solution enables businesses and outsourced service providers to manage contact centre requirements worldwide, across multiple delivery centres, with consistent customer experience and complete control. Delivering a cloud service based on Cisco® HCS from multiple data centres on Tata Communication’s tier 1 network, InstaCC Global allows contact centre businesses to achieve the  uptime, performance, scalability, and resiliency needed for business critical applications with minimal up-front investment, and the flexibility to ramp costs with usage.

InstaCC GlobalTM is a complete solution for global contact centre requirements. It delivers the full functionality of Cisco’s HCS solution, enabling a multi-channel contact centre experience on cloud-based Voice Portal. Customer administrators enjoy unprecedented levels of visibility and control through unified reporting and unified management portals. Because the solution operates as a single global service, delivered from multiple locations worldwide, customers can flexibly manage workloads across multiple in-house and out-sourced delivery centres with no disruption to operations or to their customers. Integration to the customer’s preferred CRM, recording and WFO platforms can also be maintained, even as delivery centres change.

Anthony Bartolo, President, Unified Communications and Mobility, Tata Communications, says, “Tata Communications’ global connectivity and network services are a huge advantage in bringing cloud contact centre solutions spanning emerging markets across Asia, and the developed US and European markets. Our platform uniquely positions us to manage capacity depending on need and cater real-time to changing business demands – providing a compelling alternative to the traditional, on premise contact centre model.”

InstaCC GlobalTM is built on Tata Communications’ global tier-1 IP network spanning 190+ countries. The company owns and operates the largest wholly-owned subsea cable network in the world, with services carrying over 50 B minutes of voice traffic annually and over 24% of the world’s Internet routes. With this as a foundation, and the HCS platform operating from 4 of Tata communications’ globally distributed data centres, InstaCC Global delivers un-rivalled service levels for uptime and performance. Now organisations can achieve global reach and carrier-grade scalability and resiliency for their contact centre operations without major capital investment. InstaCC’s subscription-based, per agent model lets operational costs scale up or down with demand, enabling organisations to realise TCO savings up to 30%.

Chris Botting, General Manager of Collaboration Business Applications Business Unit, at Cisco says, “Cisco is pleased that Tata Communications Limited has based their InstaCC GlobalTM on Cisco HCS. Tata Communications’ world-wide delivery capability enables them to target many previously unserved and underserved markets.”

Tata Communications will be showcasing InstaCCTM together with its next generation Unified Communications portfolio at Enterprise Connect 2015 [Booth: 1621: March 16th – 18th, Orlando]
