CBC’s digital transformation journey was powered by Cloudwave's implementation of Twilio Flex, a modern cloud-based contact centre platform.
CBC’s Digital Transformation with CloudWave and Twilio Flex
CBC is a leading provider of facilities, asset management, and construction services that caters to a diverse range of industries within the public and private sectors, including healthcare, housing, retail, transport, and infrastructure. With a Help Desk operating 24/7, CBC is committed to delivering exceptional customer experiences and operational excellence.
CBC has embarked on a business-wide digital transformation journey, transitioning from on-premise legacy equipment to modern cloud-based infrastructure.
One crucial tenet of this transformation was the evolution of their Help Desk operations to better support the evolving needs of their large network of customers, Prior to partnering with CloudWave, CBC’s Help Desk relied on an on-premise PABX system that lacked advanced routing, reporting capabilities, and intelligent functionalities.
This setup presented limitations in terms of customer engagement, service levels, and tracking key performance indicators (KPIs). The absence of remote access capabilities also posed challenges, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The existing setup had limited functionality and lacked critical features and intelligent routing capabilities.
”We struggled with a lack of visibility, as we had no analytics or ability to monitor customer interactions for training and development.” Melissa Hitchcock, CBC Help Desk Manager.
The inflexibility of the legacy system was another hurdle, making it difficult to adapt to evolving business needs. The absence of insights due to the lack of call recording and reporting capabilities hampered CBC's ability to evaluate and enhance agent performance effectively.
The impact of COVID-19 further exacerbated their difficulties, as the absence of remote work capabilities meant that the CBC Help Desk team had to work exclusively from the office -posing additional operational challenges amid and beyond the pandemic.
Helping CBC deliver exceptional customer experiences and operational excellence.
The CloudWave Solution
CBC’s digital transformation journey was powered by CloudWave's implementation of Twilio Flex, a modern cloud-based contact centre platform.

A key differentiator that set Twilio apart from other vendors was the ability to use the power of the Twilio Super Network.
Twilio Super Network is a network of Tier 1 providers all over the world to make up their Carrier Partner Network. Instead of dealing with the outages and service disruptions common in today's telecom world, companies can depend on the Twilio Carrier Partner Network, which provides higher quality and reliability than a single provider network allows for. Weaving together these different networks within the Twilio Super Network means businesses have a global reach over any channel through just one provider.
CBC digitally transformed their Help Desk operations, achieved enhanced customer experiences, and realised operational efficiency gains.
