Who can log-in when, and how can your finance department accurately predict usage?

Highly Configurable Communications Platform Reaches Beyond Channels and Across Teams, Elevating and Streamlining the User and Customer Experience
 
March 18, 2019—Enterprise Connect, Orlando—Today, Edify Labs ( edify.cx) reveals its global business communications platform, Edify, which redefines the way businesses manage customer experience (CX) and internal cross-team collaboration. Edify Labs is showcasing its product for the first time at Enterprise Connect 2019, Booth #1327.
 
Edify is a cloud-based business communications tool that combines the core functionality of Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS), Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), and Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)/PBX platforms with customer success tools. It is the first and only platform to offer complete Business Communications as a Service (BCaaS) functionality in a single tool with a single dashboard from a single vendor.
 
“As customer service, proactive customer engagement, and back-office needs converge, Edify has created a new way for organizations to ensure customers get what they need across all channels in the sales and service cycle—powered by a single workflow,” said Blair Pleasant, co-founder of BCStrategies and founder and analyst at COMMfusion. “The Edify platform unifies entire workforces on a common platform, and enables users to transition seamlessly between communication touch points, mediums, and methods, giving customers more control and continuity.”
 
“For years, businesses have been forced into a corner—paying millions of dollars a year to maintain legacy on-premise solutions which lack key functionality and the holistic perspective today’s marketplace demands. That’s why we created Edify,” said Edify co-founder, Cameron Weeks. “Before now, there was an enormous capability gap between new solutions designed for small businesses and legacy industry solutions designed to support the enterprise. Edify is an innovative, flexible and reliable proprietary communication platform that can revolutionize business communications - both customer-facing conversational CX as well as what goes on behind the scenes.”
 
The Edify global Business Communications as a Service (BCaaS) platform combines internal collaboration, contact center and UC functionality with customer success tools and modern machine learning enhancements to give users the unprecedented flexibility to stretch communications from the C-Suite to marketing executives to developers, all inside the same ecosystem. This leads to higher productivity, lower technology and staffing costs, and greater overall efficiency without sacrificing quality.

This is why we’re offering customers their first five users for FREE—forever. Once people get their hands on it, there will be no turning back.”
