Government agencies like the New Mexico Workforce Management have unique challenges that need to be address in order to deliver the service and responsiveness that’s required to satisfy the people it was set up to serve.
Clear and frequent communications between staff members and with their clients is vital to efficiently assisting New Mexicans and others who work with New Mexico Workforce Management. Traditional telecommunication solutions simply can’t meet expectations and were unsatisfactory.
When PanTerra deployed the WorldSmart™ unified communications system to New Mexico Workforce Management, it enabled the agency to do more for less. With state government budgets being slashed all across the country, the deployment of WorldSmart was a smart fiscal move and would be for any government agency looking to save money while better serving its constituents and the taxpayers.
New Mexico Workforce Management (NMWM) is a progressive government agency located under the Eastern Area Workforce Development Board (EAWDB) formed in 2000 under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998. The EAWDB currently serves twelve counties on the East side of New Mexico.
NMWM is focused on delivering superior customer service to the state of New Mexico employees while providing fair guidelines for employers. This highly transactional team is at the forefront of setting the benchmark for service expectations for government agencies and the rest of the state’s municipal service organizations.
The New Mexico Workforce Management agency needed a new telecommunications system that was more effective and supported multiple modes of communication, but didn’t cost anymore than what they were currently paying. In addition to having multiple satellite offices around the state, NMWM had employees spread around the state working remotely.
In addition to standard office phone system features, NMWM needed a solution that supported the following features:
WorldSmart is the world’s first completely cloud-based unified communications service designed for mid-market enterprises (MMEs) consisting of geographically dispersed offices and or employees. The advantage of WorldSmart’s cloud-based delivery to NMWM was the addition of new modes of communication now available to staff, clients and new business prospects.
Since WorldSmart seamlessly includes numerous communication services such as business voice, multimedia conferencing, web collaboration, fax, instant messaging, email, desktop share, and presence from one web interface, it addresses all MMEs' communication needs and eliminates the fragmented use and limited mediums their previous solutions offered.
"PanTerra provided us with the perfect solution for our predicament. We need to cut back on our telecommunication costs, but at the same time we needed to better serve our clients, who want to engage with us on multiple modes. So we needed to handle email, text message, instant messages, and even faxes, on top of regular voice calls. The WorldSmart unified communications platform was the answer."
There are plans to roll WorldSmart to other New Mexico state government service providers.
