Press Release— Intelligent Contacts Named Top Company for 2021 by The Technology Era Magazine
Magazine cites the flexibility and speed of its contact center telephony platform to quickly transition business communication from onsite to remote during the early stages of 2020’s pandemic.
Intelligent Contacts, which provides omnichannel communications and revenue cycle management tools for some of the largest accounts receivables organizations and hospital systems in the US, has been named Company of the Year by The Technology Era.
The magazine looked at how culture, adaptability, and customer satisfaction drive innovations in technology and influence greater creativity and purpose in the marketplace.
Innovative Technology Adapts and Responds to Unforeseen Obstacles
“The pandemic had an economic impact in almost every industry and our clients were no exception,” said Jeff Mains, CEO of Intelligent Contacts. “A few of our clients saw drops in business and still haven’t fully recovered, but others adapted and rebounded quickly. Most of our clients faced the immediate challenge of transitioning 100s of employees from the office to home. We were able to make that transition quick and painless.”
Intelligent Contacts’ contact center software is cloud-based, and they already supported multiple clients deploying a remote, work-from-anywhere environment. Additionally, the bulk of those work-from-anywhere businesses were in the financial services industry, and required the highest level of data security.
“Our software can be accessed securely from anywhere and consumer data is always protected. It’s designed to give leadership complete and full visibility across their contact center—regardless of where employees are working,” said Jeff Mains.
“A business wants technology that multiplies their time and productivity while being easy to use and manage. Consumers want business interactions to be personalized, convenient, and on their terms. IC constantly asks its clients, ‘How can the company make this experience better?'”
The Technology Era
The highest level of innovation is software that solves incredibly complex problems through a simple user interface
Companies choose Intelligent Contacts because they want to increase productivity and performance while removing operational complexity. Businesses today are looking for technology that doesn’t require dedicated IT staff to support or manage. Companies want technology that works, doesn’t come with a 200-page manual, and can be configured by the same people who use it every day.
“We don’t even have a manual for our products,” said Mains. “If we design a solution that requires a product manual, we’ve built it wrong. We’ve stayed ahead of the curve by building products that can be configured and managed by our clients’ existing operations team.”
Communication and payment solutions that learn from the consumer
As big data and machine learning become more critical to improving business-to-consumer interactions, Intelligent Contacts’ has become a true pioneer in using AI, automation, and real-time performance dashboards to help clients leverage their own data to drive actionable results.
“Within the billions of customer interactions taking place within our communication and payment tools there’s an amazing opportunity to get exponentially better through machine learning,” said Mains. “What might have taken a business 20 years to understand can be captured in days through machine learning. AI can’t replace the need for human interaction. But it can help smooth out some of the rough edges.”
“Our software can be accessed securely from anywhere and consumer data is always protected. It’s designed to give leadership complete and full visibility across their contact center—regardless of where employees are working.”

In the age of big data, security is the king
Providing communication and payment solutions for some of the most heavily-regulated industries—including healthcare, financial services, EBOs, and government—also requires adhering to the highest security and compliance standards.
“We’ve designed our technology to not only be consumer-focused and non-techie, but it also must meet the full spectrum of compliance standards,” said Mains.
Those standards include complying to TCPA and FDCPA regulations, as well as the latest rules handed down by the CFPB.
As a PCI-DSS Level 1 Service Provider, Intelligent Contacts maintains the highest levels of data security certifications required to handle high volumes of sensitive consumer information and credit card data.
As big data continues to be a powerful tool in helping businesses become more effective and efficient, Intelligent Contacts is at the forefront of delivering innovative features and solutions that make each of those consumer interactions more engaging, meaningful, personalized, and profitable.
