Symitar Teams with Adapt, Brings All-in-One Contact Center and IP PBX Platform to Credit Unions

Symitar®, a Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. ®, company (NASDAQ:JKHY), and Adapt Telephony Services, LLC, an Interactive Intelligence Platinum Elite Partner, today announced a strategic partnership that positions Adapt as Symitar’s unified contact center partner serving credit unions.

Brett Zbikowski, Adapt co-founder and chief strategy officer, says Adapt “has built highly compelling unified contact center solutions for the credit union marketplace, thus complementing the all-in-one IP communications software suite created by Interactive Intelligence. We have developed a growing portfolio of credit union member-centric applications enabling institutions to provide a unified member experience - and the highest levels of service – regardless of how any member wishes to communicate.”

Among terms of the partnership, Symitar representatives will market and reference Adapt’s expertise in contact center automation. Adapt will concentrate on building tighter integrations between member information at credit unions served by Symitar and how the members served choose to communicate. The partnership will capitalize on the trend to offer advanced communication tools and choices to enhance the member service experience and thus provide a competitive advantage.

Symitar and Adapt currently share credit union clients across North America. Adapt clients range in size from $100 million to $9 billion in assets. Adapt has deployed the Interactive Intelligence Customer Interaction Center® (CIC) all-in-one IP communications software suite at nearly 100 U.S. credit unions. Zbikowski adds “CIC’s real-time integration capabilities and its ability to be delivered through a single, simple user interface have led to the choice of CIC and Adapt at a number of Symitar credit union customers in recent years.”

CIC is built on standards-based, single-platform architecture running a wide range of contact center and enterprise applications, and offering extensive interoperability with existing systems. It handles all forms of member communications, such as calls, faxes, email, web chat, SMS, video, social media, mobile, workflow and online forms in the same manner. Deploying CIC requires minimal hardware, provides 100 percent redundancy across all applications, reduces IT administrative time and costs, and lowers energy use. Scalable, all-software architecture eliminates the need for multiple solutions, partners and integration points, thus reducing multiple points of failure. CIC’s all-in-one design provides credit unions with an economical way to deploy applications incrementally, enabling them to deploy applications as needed and lower their total cost of ownership as more functionality is added. A credit union can deploy CIC’s contact center, unified communications, and business process automation functionality to support its entire organization, including branch, remote and mobile employees.

According to Scott Burwell, Jack Henry market research, Adapt’s selection “is based on its long record of serving Symitar users with quality products and services. We are very excited about the potential of this partnership.”

New competitors, disruptive technologies, and growing expectations are pushing every business to both adopt and deliver new digital services. This ‘Digital Transformation’ demands rapid delivery and continuous iteration of new competitive services via multiple channels, which in turn demands new service delivery techniques – including DevOps.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

He discussed the evaluation of communication standards and IoT messaging protocols, data analytics considerations, edge-to-cloud tec...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
