ISKI - Istanbul Water and Sewerage Administration

Four million households rely on the Istanbul Water and Sewerage Administration (ISKI)for water and sewerage services. With such a large customer base, the organization needed a more reliable way to handle complaints and requests than its existing branch-based operation was capable of delivering. ISKI used an Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise platform to develop its centralized contact center. The solution comprises Genesys contact center software working over a revamped Alcatel-Lucent Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) infrastructure. The result? Customers get through to the right person the first time, and agents resolve their queries more quickly.
