IDEAS is an independent information service for people with disabilities, carers, and service providers. They use a variety of online platforms and channels to service their clients including website, web chat, SMS and call centre.

Their systems are integrated which allows information to seamlessly flow from their website to the CRM and to other parts of the business easily. This has increased their productivity, their ability to deal with more enquiries and allow clients access to resources quicker than before.

The move to the cloud-based telephony has removed the hardware dependency and has allowed IDEAS to answer landline calls from any device, anywhere. The solution also allows for access to real time data and analytics from incoming enquiries, which:
