I’ve often said that the only constant in business is change. Staying ahead of the competition, keeping pace with emerging technologies and meeting customers’ needs as they arise requires agility and the ability to evolve a company’s business needs and those of its customers in real time. But none of this is easy, and none of it happens by accident. It requires an openness to change and an ability to meet these changes head-on by transforming who you are and how you conduct business.

“I am amazed at the advancements we are seeing in AI, specifically Conversational AI,” said Bryan Stokes, who is the VP Product Management for Vonage. “Instead of the previous AI experience, which was more of a halting back and forth interaction, Conversational AI has evolved to become more of a natural 'discussion.’ It’s like going from the Walkie Talkie to the telephone. Today’s AI capabilities enable a continuous conversation. As someone who lives and breathes communications of all kinds, seeing the next generation of Google Assistant - where you can have continuous conversation and the assistant can take actions - comes so much closer to natural human interaction. Not only can this lead to more individual productivity, but it also provides real-time insights and the ability to take action during a conversation between two people. It is the latter that I think will be most beneficial -- taking away the menial tasks, like taking notes or scheduling a follow up meeting, so we can focus solely on what the other person is saying -- to make that human connection.”
HRO Today

By focusing on the overall experience—company culture, growth and opportunities, and rewards and recognition—organizations can turn employees into brand ambassadors. New talent will organically come forth, curious about how working at such a company can enrich their own lives. Most importantly, an organization that focuses on employee experience will reap the rewards of a happy and productive team, which will provide a powerful competitive advantage.
Human Resources Executive

HR itself can’t lose sight of the human touch, says Sue Quackenbush, CHRO of Vonage, a cloud communications provider. “Every individual is ultimately going to want to make a connection to the business they work for, and those connections are built via the human touch, not AI,” she says.

Tapping into its Nexmo API platform, Vonage has introduced a capability that adds programmability to any Vonage Business Cloud (VBC) phone number, giving users access to an array of functionality beyond the basic voice call. Number Programmability “will hopefully give everybody an idea of how much innovation is still to be had with as simple a thing as a phone number,” added Fois, who had been CEO of cloud contact center provider NewVoiceMedia, which Vonage acquired late last year. Separately at EC, Vonage launched a contact center solution that takes advantage of the NewVoiceMedia technology. The new single-stack offering, called CX Cloud Express, is built on the One Vonage platform and integrates with VBC, Fois said.

Experience, experience, experience – that was the theme at this year’s Enterprise Connect. Whether discussing the contact center, collaboration, or plain old unified communications, it was all about experience – including Customer Experience (CX), User Experience (UX), Employee Experience (EX), and Agent Experience (AX). Vonage made two key announcements at Enterprise Connect - CX Cloud Express and Number Programmability.

UC Today attended Enterprise Connect 2019, potentially the biggest unified communications and collaboration event on the planet, to bring you interviews with all the industry’s biggest names, including Alan Masarek who is the CEO of Vonage.

Alan tells Patrick that they have made two major announcements at Enterprise Connect 2019. Firstly they have developed number programmability for its business customers. Vonage acquired Nexmo, and now using APIs they can allow their enterprise customers to use any phone number and expand its capabilities, Alan explains how.

Secondly Alan reveals that Vonage have launched CX Cloud Express. After acquiring CCaaS platform provider NewVoiceMedia, last year, Vonage have now fully integrated the contact centre offering into Vonage Business Cloud. The offering is targeted at filling a gap in provision for medium size businesses.

CPaaS was a very present, yet sub-surface trend. The leading CPaaS providers, such as Twilio and Vonage Nexmo, are growing amazingly quickly and have hundreds of successful customer cases. Yet much of this success is embedded in business applications or workflows rather than marketed as product. Vendors collectively claim to have millions of developers signed up with their platforms, so the future of enterprise communications may be much more customized and differentiated and economical than may be imagined. CPaaS is not to be underestimated.

Fast-forward to today, and Vonage has announced the debut of its newest contact center solution, CX Cloud Express, an expansion of the Vonage Business Cloud.

It’s the first integrated offering of Vonage Business Cloud and the NewVoiceMedia contact center solution on a single stack, according to the company.

In coordination with this year’s Enterprise Connect, Vonage has announced a new feature that will significantly enhance the capabilities for its business services.

Customers who subscribe to the company’s Vonage Business Cloud (VBC) platform can look forward to the addition of “Number Programmability,” which taps into API-based features and enables a range of new capabilities that can automate and simplify various aspects of common business communications.
Channel Partners

Vonage got in the act at Enterprise Connect, debuting Number Programmability on its Vonage Business (VBC) Cloud platform, which combines UC and communications APIs to customize the business communications experience. The Number Programmability service enables any VBC phone number to be programmatically routed to a host of API-driven capabilities, allowing enterprises to customize their communications system to meet their own unique business needs – with just a few lines of code – and bringing increased capabilities to the newly launched CX Cloud Express contact-center package.

Today, Vonage is bringing its VBC service and Nexmo a bit closer with the launch of number programmability for its business customers.

What this means is that enterprises can now take any VBC number and extend it with the help of Nexmo’s APIs. To enable this, all they have to do is toggle a switch in their management console and then they’ll be able to programmatically route calls, create custom communications apps and workflows, and integrate third-party systems to build chatbots and other tools.

Vonage has a new channel chief leading the charge and he’s ready to bring the cloud communications provider’s VoIP and unified communications technology to the business masses. Mario DeRiggi, senior vice president of channel sales and business development for Vonage, joined the company in December. The Holmdel, NJ-based company offers consumer and business communication services, but Vonage has historically been a more visible communications provider in the consumer space. However, Vonage’s UC services are more than ready for business users and DeRiggi wants to harness the power of the channel to help Vonage actively pursue midmarket and large enterprise customers.

Although Twilio is a larger player in the CPaaS space, Vonage offers a more complete cloud communications offering, including Unified Communications and Contact Center applications. As these products become more integrated, customers will enjoy significant advantages not available from point providers. In addition, Vonage’s Nexmo offers a more complete solution for companies who have customers in all regions of the world, with more languages supported and a significant presence abroad.

Vonage is well positioned to succeed in a market in which collaboration in the context of customer engagement is increasingly a core focus area among those with active digital transformation and digital customer engagement strategies.
