Many Irish businesses use Quvu to manage their contact centres. Quvu is being used to oversee teams of outbound sales’ agents that are calling potential customers across Ireland and internationally, and by inbound call centres handling large volumes of customer enquiries each day. Below are some examples of companies that are using to Quvu to simplify the management of their contact centres and maximise the success of their campaigns.
IDG Group is the world’s leading technology media, events and research company, with a worldwide audience of over 280 million buyers. IDG’s Irish contact centre, IDG Direct uses Quvu to oversee its activity. General manager John Moran talks about his experience:
“Having Quvu has fundamentally changed the way I manage my contact centre. At any one time I have 100 people on the phones to countries all over the world. Before I got Quvu, analysing staff statistics was a very labour intensive progress and could not be done in real-time. Also, if I wanted to listen to a call it had to be done manually. Now with Quvu I have instant access to real time data on all my staff, on the screen in front of me. It shows if they’re on a call, how long the call has been or how long since they’ve been off a call. I have access to their stats for the day, week, month or year, and by clicking on their icon I can instantly listen to their call.
Quvu is provided via an entirely cloud-based system, so there is no requirement for hardware servers on our site. The real icing on the Quvu cake is that all I need to use it is my tablet and Wi-Fi, so I can manage my team from anywhere, and I mean anywhere. Only last week I had a couple hours to kill in JFK Airport, so I went into a café and opened up Quvu so that I could see exactly what my team were doing that very minute on other side of the Atlantic. I was able to listen to their calls and let them know I was still keeping an eye on them even though I was over 3,000 miles away.”

Water – what would we do without it? Unfortunately, tap water contains chemicals and other impurities, while bottled water is expensive and can be bad for the environment. Why drink water that’s been shipped all way from Fiji in a plastic bottle when you can have clean filtered Irish water on tap at home or work? This exactly where Irish company Gulp.ie comes in. Their under-the-sink water-filtration-system removes impurities such as metals, chemicals, bacteria, oestrogen, nitrates, fluoride and chlorine – leaving only the good stuff. You can now choose the quality and purity of the water you drink, in the same way you select other healthy lifestyle options.
Such is the high demand for Gulp’s products that they have taken on Quvu to help them simplify the organisation of their contact centre and help them manage their calls efficiently.

PetInsure started trading in June 2008 and their goal is to bring superior pet insurance products and services to the Irish marketplace, and Operations Manager Ann Crawford spoke to us about why PetInsure chose Quvu and the benefits it brings to how they run their business:
“We recently expanded our operation and having reviewed the options available we decided Goldfish.ie and their Hosted PBX & Call Centre (Quvu.ie) offering would be an ideal fit for us. Within the click of a mouse we can manage our phone system and call centre operations from a web-based control panel. Call recording within the insurance industry is critical and has become another requirement for processing customers’ claims. Goldfish offer unlimited storage of all call recordings for up to six years. They are held in a secure online searchable database. One of the unique features that Quvu offer is “Call Pausing” – allowing us to pause the call while we take payment details over the phone. The extra level of security that it affords us, knowing our customers payment details are not retained, is invaluable.”
“Seán and his team made this transition as simple as possible with friendly, ongoing support available. Any request that we made was dealt with efficiently and expertly by the Quvu team. I would be happy to recommend Quvu by Goldfish.ie for business telecommunications.”
