Adapt Deploying All-in-One Unified Communications Software at Redstone Federal Credit Union; Signs Alliance Agreement with Consulting Subsidiary
|By Business Wire
|January 28, 2014 03:00 PM EST
Redstone Federal Credit Union (RFCU) has selected Adapt Telephony
Services, LLC, to configure, install and provide technical support for
the Interactive Intelligence Group Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ININ) contact center
and enterprise IP telephony software suite, Customer Interaction
Center® (CIC). The all-in-one unified communication platform will be
deployed by Adapt throughout RFCU’s organization.
RFCU has more than 350,000 members, 800 employees, 24 branch locations
across Alabama and assets of more than $3.5 billion. CIC’s capabilities
will upgrade the RFCU member services center by replacing an aging
Nortel enterprise telephony system with a single platform. RFCU no
longer will need to manage multiple standalone systems loosely
integrated from multiple vendors.
The selection of Adapt and its Interactive Intelligence solution over
alternative platforms was based upon the simplistic yet scalable
architecture found in CIC, says Harry Gunsallus, Redstone’s EVP/CIO and
President of Redstone Consulting Group. “CIC integrates in real time to
Redstone’s Open Solutions (now FiSERV) core Banking System,” he notes.
“We will be using multimedia queuing, recording, workforce management,
disaster recovery and the new Interaction Analyzer™ speech
analytics product to spot keywords and phrases spoken by our members,
score our agents and help them improve their everyday performance.
Beyond today, CIC’s flexibility will enable us to develop and deploy our
own applications and then sell those solutions through our consulting
Adapt has an extensive focus in the financial industry with more than 90
financial clients across 27 states. These institutions range in size
from $100 million in assets to over $8 billion.
Adapt, Redstone Consulting Group Sign Alliance Agreement
Additionally, Adapt and Redstone Consulting Group (RCG), a credit union
service organization (CUSO) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of RFCU, have
entered into a three-year joint venture. As part of the agreement, RCG
will introduce Adapt, the CIC solution from Interactive Intelligence and
Adapt custom applications to other financial institutions. Adapt’s
trained, certified sales engineering, implementation and project
management teams will be tapped for their expertise in improving the
user experience through all-in-one multi-channel communication. Adapt
will reciprocate where appropriate with prospective users with
recommendations involving products developed by Redstone Consulting

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives.
Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
