Dublin, OH (PRWEB) March 15, 2011
Influent Inc., a leading customer contact business in the Americas, has completed its brand integration with PCCW Teleservices, a premier provider of outsourcing solutions operating one of the most sophisticated contact center networks in Asia.
Following PCCW Teleservices’ acquisition of a majority stake in Influent in 2009, the two leading business process outsourcing companies began a process to merge their operations. The two businesses have been operating complementary networks and coordinating a broad range of business initiatives during business integration efforts over the past 18 months.
The integration is now complete and Influent will be rebranded as PCCW Teleservices. PCCW Teleservices will continue to operate its 24/7, multi-channel contact management centers via hubs in the United States, mainland China, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Panama.
Mr. Andrew Jacobs, PCCW Teleservices’ President of the United States and Latin America, said, “The unified branding is an important milestone for the business integration and the combination brings tremendous power and innovation to the marketplace. We have already seen immediate interest from companies wanting to learn more about the potential benefits from our combined operations.”
Mr. Eric Hallquist, Director of User Operations for Zoosk, one of the fastest growing social networking services and an Influent client, said, “We have experienced rapid growth in sales and memberships this year and are continuing to expand internationally. Influent has been a good partner in supporting our growth and their global integration with PCCW Teleservices has aided our expansion into new world markets."
Mr. Tony Bruno, Head of PCCW Teleservices worldwide, said, “The rebranding of Influent will expand PCCW Teleservices’ brand presence within the industry. The integrated business not only increases customer support and growth opportunities for clients, but also helps to encourage further innovation of industry best practices such as technological improvements and service refinement.”
