The engagement will see Graham Technology assist Friends Provident in delivering centralised customer service processes to all of the firm's customer groups, across all channels (contact centre and self-service), in all of its geographies. The project will support 2,000 concurrent internal users and unlimited external users.
"Friends Provident represents a phenomenal customer win for ciboodle and we are delighted to have secured another win in the financial services sector," said Murray Farquharson, Account Director at Graham Technology.
