Corebridge solution refines OIL’s communication environment

Mardi 22 Décembre 2015

Corebridge is proud to announce Offshore Incorporations HK Limited (OIL), Asia’s leading offshore company formation specialist, as the newest member of the Corebridge family. With OIL’s rapidly growing business has come the need to improve control of their communication environment. Critical to their business is the ability to identify who is calling in (integrating with their in-house database), to track agent’s telephony statuses and call activities, and finally, during peak times, to use the real-time tracking tool to log who is in the call queue. OIL searched the market for a solution that addressed their requirements. Their search culminated in Corebridge being awarded the contract in December 2015. Corebridge in partnership with PCCW, Hong Kong’s dominant telecom company, delivered a turn key solution to OIL. The Corebridge proposal met OIL’s requirements head-on. Firstly, Corebridge’s proprietary synchronising agents allow OIL to integrate telephony with their existing database so that incoming calls are identified immediately. CoreTeam, a real-time telephony and computer status tracking tool, allows supervisors to track their agents’ productivity. “Before Corebridge, it was difficult to measure the efficiency of my in-house sales department to ensure that we provided the best service to our valued clients. We now have a real-time view of their telephony activity which allows me to manage my team more effectively,” says Suzanne Callister, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. The benefits of Corebridge were recognised by OIL within the first week of installation. We are happy to announce another satisfied Corebridge customer and look forward to building our relationship with OIL for many years to come.

View Corebridge's Desktop Launch Demo

Mercredi 24 Juin 2009

Forty-five minutes? Just seven years ago that seemed like an unrealistic claim. Now using Corebridge, thanks to its facility for integration with all manner of desktop applications, a launch can be facilitated the moment the phone rings. Our unified communications solutions are renowned for enabling organisations to leverage full value from their existing assets. So there may yet be a way found to maximise the nation's return on its investment in Trident. If the world's arsenals were hooked up to Corebridge, they could be launched quite securely on picking up a call or after hanging up, prompted by the hierarchies of rules that administrators set. So for a more efficient, more cost-effective, probably safer world, come to Corebridge.

Public-sector pitch levelled By Hugo Greenhalgh Published: April 18 2008 18:28 Small businesses pitching for public-sector contracts are now able to outsource elements to third parties under new initiatives introduced this month. Before April, any firm tendering for business faced a ban on the assignment of debt, preventing them from being able to subcontract portions of the deal to other companies. However, others were more cautious, citing the problems faced by SMEs when tendering for public sector contracts. The chief executive of Corebridge, a London-based telecoms software business, compared UK with US policy, which already ringfences 25 per cent of all contracts to SMEs. “In the UK, the system works against the SMEs and favours dealing with large enterprises,” he said.

Microsoft offers helping hand to UK start-ups

Mardi 2 Octobre 2007

By Colin Barker Published: Tuesday 2 October 2007 UK companies with "high potential" can now get a helping hand from Microsoft, the software giant has said, as it launched a new scheme to support start-ups. Announcing the Startup Accelerator Programme, Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer said the aim is to help those companies that show enormous potential but find it difficult to get started in the right way. A similar scheme has been running in the US since August. According to Ballmer: "Software offers huge opportunities for new UK businesses but even great ideas and ground-breaking innovation are sometimes not enough to bring long-term success." The programme is designed, said Ballmer, to "help fledgling businesses realise their potential and achieve success". It includes technical support and guidance on Microsoft technologies and platforms, including Silverlight - Microsoft's competitor to Adobe's Flash - and its Live offerings, which also received a shot in the arm with the announcement of new services. To help promote the businesses, Microsoft will be offering commercial help as well but first companies have to "be successful" in being considered suitable by Microsoft. Once accepted, qualifying start-ups will get access to tools and services to help "accelerate their businesses commercially", the company said in a statement. This will include "access to marketing and sales support, as well as business-development sessions hosted by Microsoft". The scheme was launched at a half-day conference in London. At least four companies - Corebridge, Miomni, ViaPost and Zebtab - have already successfully joined the scheme.

CLSA and Corebridge combine to deliver an award winning convergence solution

Mercredi 20 Décembre 2006

Using Corebridge technology in conjunction with Nortel hardware, CLSA the global investment bank has won a prestigious All Star award for this year from the Network Asia publication. Corebridge’s solution was adjudicated amongst the best in a competition that also included respected global brands such as Cable & Wireless, Cisco, HP, Oracle and Symantec and whose judges’ panel included HSBC’s Head of IT. CLSA had simple objectives. It wished to improve communications with its customers, reduce its operating costs and still maintain its high quality communications infrastructure. The All Star Award judges were impressed by the effectiveness and speed at which the bank had achieved these goals after Corebridge was commissioned to install its solution. Operating in conjunction with Nortel voice and data hardware, Corebridge eliminated the gap between CLSA’s voice and data towers that had meant that traders and analysts had to dial outgoing numbers manually and search records for customer information in the same way. Corebridge’s link of voice and data applications automated these processes easily and accessibly. A year on from the small-scale pilot programme tested in Hong Kong, CLSA has embedded Corebridge technology in its office systems throughout the world. The productivity gains wrought by converging voice and data applications have been startling. Ian Aniszewski, CLSA’s manager for infrastructure strategies comments, “This platform has reduced internal communications charges significantly and delivered business quality voice. Our productivity has gone up 15% and we saved about 80% in costs, equivalent to $US480,000. The Managing Director in the Asia Pacific region, is justifiably pleased by the benefits that CLSA has derived from installing the Corebridge Solution. “We are delighted that CLSA’s achievements in improving their productivity so markedly have been recognised by Network Asia,” says the Managing Director. “It proves the Corebridge Solution’s effectiveness and demonstrates the value that Corebridge’s non-intrusive technology can add to the infrastructure of any organisation in the financial sector, whatever its size.”

As an introduction to Corebridge’s productive potential, the next release of TFB’s P4W software will include Corebridge’s ”CoreClick” technology.

L'odyssée de Corebridge

Samedi 1 Janvier 2005

11 May 2009 The ChannelNews website in France interviews Raoul Mattei, Corebridge's General Manager for Continental Europe. A translation follows. For the original article about Corebridge please follow this link: L'odyssée de Corebridge, Channel News.fr website The Corebridge Odyssey 11.05.09 - Dirk Basyn Corebridge has signed a partnership agreement with Microsoft for its OCS Gateway Server solution. A deal for the Anglo-Saxon offshoot of a company that was born in the laboratory of France Telecom. No one is prophet in his own land. This old saying is especially appropriate in respect of Corebridge's odyssey. In the 'nineties, development agreements between IBM France and France Telecom gave birth to a gateway for hardware and software that enabled the remote monitoring of telephone calls. Becoming the property of both Bull and Integro, the product suffered as differences between the two companies emerged. So its creators went in search of capital investment, which they found in Britain, the Middle East and Hong Kong. The investors, asked the developers to release a 100% software solution. They did and on 1 January 2004, the Corebridge company was established in London with an office in Hong Kong and R & D based in France. In 2007, its commercial arm was reactivated in France. In the same year Corebridge was one of the first companies to be invited to join the Microsoft Accelerator Startup Program, which enables it to receive software and support from the software giant. This partnership has assisted the creation of Corebridge OCS Gateway Server (COGS), a software gateway that leverages the remote call control capabilities of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2. Red Herring Global 100 Award Very intrigued by this product, a Microsoft team from Seattle visited Corebridge in 2008. The Global 100 Award from Red Herring in January 2009 helped convince the Redmond publisher to sign a partnership agreement with Corebridge. The product is now ready to be distributed. The goal is to become a preferred solution. "All Microsoft partners can deploy our solution in the form of a COGS server. This is the equivalent of an Alcatel gateway, but as a modular software, it is irrelevant who made your PBX or what communications infrastructure you have. COGS can provide disparate telephone environments with different levels of technology. Not everyone is geared for IP," said Raoul Mattei, Corebridge's General Manager for Continental Europe. No initial investment software COGS requires no initial software investment. The customer need only pay an annual fee for support and maintenance. From their workstations, users then have access to all the benefits of unified communications (email, initiation of work flow activity triggered by call activity, conference call, voice mail, SMS ....). "Being deployed in France by Microsoft may allow us to invest in neighbouring countries such as Italy and Spain. We already have two clients in Switzerland," said Raoul Mattei, a former IBM sales manager. Corebridge in France is back to square one in some ways, but under much better auspices.

EV: As a publisher of software, how Corebridge integrate the phenomena of Saas and Cloud? RM: We are at heart, make sure that you understand us well, we do not take care of any communication tools, they exist or are provided by IT manufacturers and Telecom sector, however we enable our clients: • To negotiate a better rate contract of 13 000 calls per day, 400 simultaneously, 30 hours of video 1000 fax and 1000 sms per day and 150h mobile communications per day with suppliers. • To invoice each user in accordance with his profile: either calls or call duration per day in fixed and mobile telephony, the quantity of sms sent, quantity of faxes sent and the number of minutes used on video conferencing, the number of applications connectivity, with full accessibility and level of services.
