BASS Americas S.A., the Regional Shared Services Center of the British American Tobacco Group, leans on AVOXI’s global communications software for 10+ years to support their HR and Finance services with a dependable and easy-to-activate cloud platform. 

When the pandemic hit in 2020, BASS Americas found themselves struggling to support their new remote workforce with their existing on-premise PBX provider. With poor voice quality and VPN connection issues, the Company quickly realized the need for a cloud-based solution that would enable their team to continue making critical calls to keep their business running. 

As they were looking for the best available options, BASS immediately found compatibility with long-time vendor, AVOXI. Having relied on their international voice solutions for several years prior, BASS was familiar with their 24/7/365 support and reliability.

With AVOXI’s online call center system, easy setup, and 100% hardware-free platform, BASS Americas was able to modernize their communications, seamlessly transitioning their team from PBX to the cloud - all from home. 

The Crucial Time: At that moment, BASS Americas was in the middle of a new service launch, increasing its need for a global communications provider that could provide a fast yet reliable path to the cloud. Knowing their remote employees would require managing the installation themselves, BASS sought a robust platform that was easy to use and could support remote agents without any additional hardware.

  • Easy Setup for End Users. BASS Americas was focused on a quick deployment solution that was robust for a work-from-home environment and did not require additional hardware. An easy-to-use softphone and an intuitive user interface for agents were critical.

 

  • Fast-Activation on International Numbers. With new services rolling out, BASS Americas needed a global voice platform where they could provide quick, multiple international numbers for their call center agents working at home. AVOXI’s self-service portal made it easy to scale within its platform, so it could continue with its service rollout as scheduled. 

 

  • Exceptional Voice Quality. Without a VPN to connect to and from home, the BASS Americas team was facing unstable connectivity from its PBX. Their agents needed a cloud communications platform that was reliable and consistently delivered exceptional voice quality.

The AVOXI Solution: In order to keep its operations running smoothly, BASS Americas sought a system that could quickly support its remote team with easy-to-use technology and fast installation. For Erasmo Valladares, Local Information & Digital Technology Manager at BASS Americas, that called for a superior communications platform that could easily be installed from anywhere and handle their growing international calling needs.
