Homework pays off for iinet

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 14 November 2012 Release date- 12112012 - iiNet, Australia's leading challenger in the telecommunications market, has continued to display its leadership credentials on customer service having achieved recognition on the world stage.

iiNet's 'Work from Home' program, which sees 15 per cent of customer service representatives work from the comfort of their homes, has followed up its first place in the Contact Centre Asia Pacific Awards, with an additional Bronze award at the Contact Centre World Awards in Los Vegas.

The 'Work from Home' program has demonstrated a very positive impact on customer service delivery and has also been a driver for increased staff satisfaction. The well-developed program is expected to grow by a further five per cent over the next three years.

Customer service staff working from home are able to work almost exactly as they would from the office - taking customer sales, support and billing queries and completing order processing work. They have the flexibility to work any shifts within a call centre's opening hours and as part of the program can fill in during high call demand periods.

The sophisticated systems used are also widely employed by non-contact centre staff for remote access to the business. As an on-line business, the 'Work from Home' program allows all staff to regularly work away from the corporate offices.

The award recognition comes as the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman reported a significant reduction in customer complaints as well as recent iiNet success in taking home a swag of awards at the Customer Service Institute of Australia, Service Excellence Awards.

iiNet's General Manager of Customer Service, Mat Conn, said that customers are the driver behind every decision made at the Internet Service Provider.

'Each and every staff member is focused on providing the best service they can on a daily basis, and we're proud of the programs we have in place to help make this happen,' Mr Conn said.

'We're confident that we provide industry leading customer service and we sincerely appreciate receiving the recognition from the industry both here in Australia and overseas. This proves to us that we are doing something right.' For more information on iiNet, visit www.iinet.net.au.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
