Nevada School District Contact Center Receives 25,000+ Calls To Support Remote Student Learning

Evolve IP® and Tech Impact Deploy Contact Center in 72 Hours To Connect Families In Need of Remote Learning Hardware and Connectivity with School Districts
WAYNE, Pa. - Sept. 29, 2020 - PRLog -- Evolve IP®, the world's leading provider of Work Anywhere™ solutions, and Tech Impact, a nonprofit that helps other not-for-profit organizations realize the potential of technology, today announced that their contact center solution has helped thousands of Nevada families connect with local school districts to coordinate the delivery of hardware and internet connectivity for remote learning. In just its first week, the center received over 25,000 calls which were handled by 150 school district employees, all working from home and acting as temporary call center agents to help out district families.

The solution, developed in partnership with Connecting Kids Nevada, was deployed in just 72 hours and involved a variety of integrated contact center, voice, and collaboration technologies. Leveraging Tech Impact's contact center architecture, Evolve IP provisioned new routing rules, phone lines, reporting dashboards, and mobile unified communications applications for school district contact center 'agents'. Additionally, the personnel were trained on the technology so they could start accepting calls, validate family identities, and coordinate deliveries for students.

"I admire the mission, vision and commitment of the leadership at Connecting Kids Nevada and I am grateful that Tech Impact is able to play an important role in their work to ensure that students around the state have the hardware and internet access they need for remote learning," said Patrick Callihan, Executive Director of Tech Impact. "I would like to thank the teachers, administrators and other volunteers that are answering phones and connecting families to their already busy school preparation schedules. And, my sincerest thanks to Evolve IP for enabling the technology so quickly, we could not have implemented this important community service without their orchestration."

"What Connecting Kids Nevada and Tech Impact have done is incredibly important on multiple levels and we're thrilled to be able to help," said Hank Stringer, SVP of White Label Services for Evolve IP. "First and foremost, it's critical that kids are able to learn effectively, whether that's from home during the pandemic or in the classroom after it's safe. Second, their parents need to work to keep their households stable and the economy moving. They cannot do that nearly as effectively if they are struggling with the education needs for their children. This is a wonderful program and we're so happy that it's been a great success."
