Delivering Purolator Customer Service through the Cloud

When Purolator, Canada’s largest courier company, needed to streamline its customer experience, it looked to emerging technologies and transformed its business with cloud computing. In partnership with its IT Service Provider, Innovapost, and salesforce.com, Purolator successfully deployed a customized, cloud-based call center application that services over 35,000 customer requests a day.

This presentation offers strategies and tactics for CIOs and Technology Directors interested in a large-scale deployment of cloud-based technologies and customer service solutions. Attendees will learn how the three companies overcame agile development and integration challenges to arrive at this industry-first customer care solution.
