Britannic Streamline Breast Cancer Now’s Telephony

When Breast Cancer Care merged with Breast Cancer Now they selected Britannic to merge the two telephony systems together to streamline calls and operations.

Coincidentally Breast Cancer Care already used Mitel IP telephony, so it simplified the merging of the telephony somewhat.

Romeena Kazi, IT Support Manager at Breast Cancer Now comments, “We had multiples of everything, two reception numbers, numerous fundraising numbers, two help service desk numbers so we had to merge and port numbers into a single telephone system to simplify our telephony for employees and customers.”

Merging the telephony systems for the two businesses was no mean feat; Breast Cancer Care had 4 sites across the UK which had to be merged with the site for Breast Cancer Now.

“Working with Britannic at this challenging time was really interesting. I found their account management and technical skills outstanding, and their consultative approach was vital to me at this time.

We had many external ring groups to set up with lots of configurations and porting, our customers are women diagnosed with Cancer where we provide help and support so it was of paramount importance that customers could get through first time and our telephony was robust and reliable with good connectivity,” commented Romeena.

Romeena and her team rolled out Mitel MiCollab, a conferencing and collaboration solution across the business which enabled employees to use a soft phone providing then with the freedom to work from anywhere and access it on any device. This has proven very useful for hybrid working.

“We are delighted to be working with Breast Cancer Now who are such an important charity and assisting them on their digital transformation. Where they can continually evolve and improve their communications and discover new innovative ways of working to enhance customer care and do more with less which is critical for them,” comments Jonathan Sharp, CEO, Britannic.
