The U.S. broadband and cloud services provider has selected Netcracker's customer management platform to personalize interactions and deliver proactive customer care.

Netcracker Technology announced that Schurz Communications, a U.S.-based broadband media group and cloud managed services provider, will upgrade to the Netcracker Digital BSS platform to enhance its customer service quality and deliver efficiencies to its contact center operations.

Schurz, which consists of a number of properties, including Antietam Broadband in Maryland, Burlington Telecom in Vermont, Hiawatha Broadband in Minnesota, Long Lines Broadband in Iowa and Orbitel Communications in Arizona, will benefit from the Agent Desktop feature of Netcracker Customer Management, part of the Netcracker Digital BSS platform.

The Agent Desktop solution will help Schurz achieve performance improvements in its contact center operations, including empowering agents to access a new user interface and helping to resolve customer issues quickly, which will have a significant impact as Schurz’s customer base continues to grow.

Schurz is also leveraging professional services from Netcracker, including hosted managed services, solution implementation and support.

Brian Lynch, SVP at Schurz Communications, commented:

“As we extend our broadband footprint across the U.S., we continue to focus on our customers first and foremost. Netcracker has been a valuable partner to us over the years, and being able to integrate an advanced customer care agent desktop into our operations will ensure that our customers receive only the best service no matter how they communicate with us.”

Rohit Aggarwal, GM at Netcracker, concluded:

“Being entrusted with something as important as helping Schurz create the best possible experience for its customers is an honor for us. We look forward to our continued collaboration as Schurz expands its business and delivers new services across the U.S.”
