Singapore – April 24, 2019 –Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA) is partnering with Standard Chartered to deliver a multi-year client experience transformation project that will enable the Bank to more fully align its services with clients’ fast-paced, digitally connected lives. The Avaya OneCloud Private solution enables organisations such as Standard Chartered to hit the ground running with unified communications and contact centre solutions delivered on their own private cloud.
Avaya offers standard reference architectures—or customers can team up with Avaya global experts to design a custom solution. The Standard Chartered Avaya implementation is designed to enable the Bank to effectively service its clients, while building a foundation that anticipates contact centre channels that have not yet emerged.
As Standard Chartered continues to invest in its digital capabilities, the global banking group is experiencing an increase in digital adoption, with 49% of clients now actively using online or mobile banking compared to 45% in 2017. The Bank is committed to delivering an easy, convenient and secure digital banking experience across multiple channels, while still offering the human touch through its client contact centres.
