<p>Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), a global leader in relationship management, announced the appointment of Max Tennant as senior account executive. Underpinning the overall success and continued growth of Convergys’ business in Australia and New Zealand, Tennant will focus on enhancing support for the telecommunications, financial services, travel and tourism and other vertical sectors through Convergys’ outsourcing, consulting and billing &amp; CRM solutions.</p>
<p>“Customer service management is high on the agenda for businesses across all industries and maximising customer lifetime value is a key driver for growth,” said Max Tennant. “At Convergys, we approach this from all angles including customer satisfaction, customer retention, increased usage of existing services and take up of new services.”</p>
<p>“To help our customers drive long-term revenue growth, Convergys continuously addresses the market needs with edge-leading solutions in relationship management and customer management. Following our recent announcement of the Convergys Multichannel Automation Solutions, a new version of the Convergys Customer Service Management solution will roll out in the next few months to help local businesses enhance the customer experience and customer lifetime value.”</p>
<p>According to Tennant, offshore contact centre services will remain the company’s key business focus in Australia and New Zealand. “Contact centres will always play a major role in services based organisations. The need will increase as services such as telephone banking and home shopping become further adopted in Australia,” he continued.</p>
