In Part 2 of Client Instant Access’s thought leadership series on how firms can elevate multi-channel customer engagement, we examine how to optimize workflows, even amidst unpredictable circumstances like the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

As firms across financial services, healthcare, education, and other industries continue to work remotely – and with many already considering implementing work from home policies longer-term – multi-faceted and secure resources like webinars, blast voicemail, conference calling, integrated dialer and SMS capabilities, provide the efficiency and peace of mind in what has quickly become a heavily-saturated and hectic communications environment.

Communication Remains Critical in Crisis 

Business Continuity will cease to exist for most firms if they do not have the platforms, tools, and systems in place to combat workplace inefficiencies. With a solution like Omnigage, designed with a secure and compliant infrastructure, the tools you need can be integrated within your CRM and deployed overnight so your firm can remain in touch and productive through any crisis.

While blasts are excellent for keeping teams up to speed and distributing service updates to customers, direct communication is equally as important. Omnigage can dial any number in the world while protecting employees’ personal numbers and tracking communication without the use of a PBX. This can be a particularly valuable tool in the banking sector, where analysts can record messages and share with their sales team, who then have the option to leave a personalized message from the analyst when calling client lists.

Due to the accelerated communication contingency issues that arose during the COVID-19 outbreak, Client Instant Access experienced a 75% increase in business in March alone. This not only demonstrates the increased demand for multi-channel communication solutions during a crisis but also Client Instant Access’s ability to rapidly deploy these tools anywhere in the world, at any time. With our state-of-the-art Omnigage platform, remote work has never been easier.

Never Lose Momentum

Working from home is the perfect opportunity to use new communication platforms and connect with co-workers in different ways. Multi-channel communications systems can keep you as engaged and involved as you would be in the office. With all meetings and events now happening in a virtual environment, Client Instant Access has provided a polished and secure atmosphere for thousands of board meetings, Q&A sessions, and business pitches for professionals that would normally occur in-person.

Even communication among team members has become more valuable than ever before. Tools like a built-in team inboxes empower remote workers to collaborate over email and SMS about customer conversations with team members.

For the financial sector specifically, Client Instant Access has helped ensure business continuity for the corporate access sector, allowing leading banks to connect investors with management teams virtually since roadshows and in-person conferences are no longer an option. Whether you’re using conference calling and webinar services, blast voicemail, email, or SMS to connect with clients and co-workers, Omnigage ensures workplace productivity and business continuity.

A loss in productivity means a loss in business momentum. The struggle to rejuvenate workforce efficiency can be an arduous journey but with a secure and proven communication foundation in place, not only are relationships elevated but the confidence in the tools provided is unmatched.

With employees away from their desks, traditional telephony has become upended. Using a modern cloud solution for calling is the solution.

By employing a platform that optimizes workflows, keeps your data secure, and ensures that your firm is ahead of the compliance curve, you are adding a layer of efficiency to what may be a challenging time for many.
