Talbots Chooses Cameo Global for Customer Care Needs

CINCINNATI – Sept. 30, 2014 – Cameo Global, a worldwide leader in innovative business collaboration solutions, proudly announces it has been selected by Talbots to deliver customer care services via an omni-channel, cloud-based solution.

Revolutionary CloudBlu™ will deliver best-in-class, cloud-based, omni-channel collaboration to customers

CloudBlu™, Cameo Global’s exclusive, cloud-based collaboration solution, will provide contact center, email, web chat, analytics and workforce management applications to the client. Cloud services will be delivered via Cameo Global’s dual data centers to Talbots’ primary customer care center in Tennessee.

“Customer service is an important cornerstone to our relationship with our customers,” said Wes Wilson, Vice President Technology Services at Talbots. “And with Cameo Global, we are able to deliver highly responsive customer support services.”

A sharp increase in online and catalogue order demand, especially during the holiday shopping seasons, put a strain on the retailer’s existing, premise-based ACD call center technology. In response, Talbots selected Cameo Global to deliver a cutting edge, cloud-based, multichannel platform. CloudBlu™, which is based on Cisco’s market-leading Contact Center Enterprise, will now enable the retailer to quickly leverage the industry’s leading customer service applications. Additionally, CloudBlu’s™ seasonal pricing model allowed the retailer to streamline their overall costs and eliminate unnecessary additional licensing expenses.

Along with the power of CloudBlu’s™ services, Cameo also leveraged their strategic partnership with ContactUS, a leader in contact center BPO and analytics, to duplicate the same functionality of people, process and technology at the ContactUS customer care locations. By integrating the systems, Talbots now has an increased opportunity to scale while leveraging consolidated reporting and analytic tools.

“Cameo Global has made a strategic investment in building and managing a cloud solution that meets our customer demands for service delivery via a hosted platform” said Mark Handermann, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Cameo Global. “We have built CloudBlu™ to be a user-friendly, omni-channel collaboration solution. This retailer is a visionary organization, and we are proud to have them as our client.”
