Psytechnics Experience Manager Solution Hits Milestone of Managing Additional One Million IP Telephony Business Users in 2008

Press release from: Psytechnics

/ PR Agency: March Communications
London, January 13, 2009—Psytechnics, a leader in voice performance management solutions for operations and service management teams in service providers and enterprises, today announces that the company’s flagship product, Experience Manager, has driven better voice call quality for an additional one million IP Telephony (IPT) business users through 2008. With multiple recent contract wins and deployments across service providers in the UK and the Netherlands this is a significant milestone for Psytechnics. This success clearly demonstrates that Psytechnics’ unique ability to measure and resolve voice call quality issues is recognised as an essential component in the business of delivering IP Telephony based services. It also underlines the fact that service providers are increasingly recognising that existing VoIP tools from IPT and NMS vendors do not address the issues of identifying, resolving or preventing poor quality IP telephony calls and in fact recognises these as ‘reactive tools’ for network engineers that do not address the business goals of reducing costs, maintaining customer satisfaction and delivering operational efficiency.

Call quality problems rapidly become service affecting as they have a significant impact on customer satisfaction, potentially a financial impact on service level agreements, and they also increase operating costs due to the increased troubleshooting time and resources needed. Psytechnics has demonstrated that there is strong demand for a more advanced operational solution that gives real time visibility to call quality performance. Should quality thresholds be breached, Experience Manager helps to pinpoint the specific issue and identify and locate the root cause within the network. This proactive approach contrasts to manual troubleshooting of call quality issues in a reactive, fire fighting approach that uses expensive network and engineering resources.

Kelly Westerfield, Director of Network Delivery, IBM Network Services comments, “We had to find a more efficient way to manage IP Telephony call quality. We had to automate what was becoming a very manual, reactive, time consuming and costly process. We had to address this so that we could provide a higher level of voice service to our customers and manage our costs.”

Westerfield continues, “Psytechnics gives us the ability to understand poor voice call quality in real time and then helps us understand what is causing the problem and where. In most cases call quality issues are identified and resolved before the user is aware of it. Without Psytechnics we would only be aware of some types of voice quality issues only when the user reported it.”

Psytechnics European VP Sales, Ravi Pather comments, “The operational and business issues associated with maintaining acceptable call quality for IP Telephony based services are not going away. They remain because users are still complaining of poor quality calls, and current tools do not help operations and support correctly identify and resolve the problems quickly enough. Call quality issues are not being addressed with the current tools from the IPT or the network management software vendors. They have simply not understood the complexities and priorities of real time voice operations and as such their tools do not address this. The fact that many of these vendors typically rely on a simple MOS (Mean Opinion Score) measurement that has little to do with the actual user experience is a great place to start asking some hard questions.”

Pather continues, “Service Providers clearly have to address call quality and customer satisfaction issues, but the operational cost is also now a significant driver. Business driven initiatives such as ‘Right First Time ‘, ‘Customer Experience Management’ and ‘Reduced Time to Repair’ give strong insights into the renewed business priorities and the appetite to address them”. “With Psytechnics’ solutions, call quality issues can typically be diagnosed in 10 percent of the time compared to using existing tools from IPT and NMS vendors”.

The Psytechnics Experience Manager solution, recently named 2008 Product of the Year by Internet Telephony Magazine, provides a solid foundation to speed up the ‘find and fix’ process by providing an integrated solution for the monitoring, alerting, troubleshooting and reporting of voice quality, reducing costs and mean time to repair (MTTR) by pinpointing the nature and source of the problem and directing the correct operational teams to solve the issues quickly and efficiently.
