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.”
