    To ensure DIRECTV customers receive top-quality service, the customer service organization
    works closely with outsourcing partner Convergys Corporation. Between the two operations,
    nearly 10,000 agents spread across 14 sites handle approximately 75 million contacts annually
    that support the DIRECTV customer service organization. Both DIRECTV and Convergys have
                                                                                                       ™

    standardized on the IEX TotalView Workforce Management system and a NICE SmartCenter
    solution, for staff planning and management. Under the previous system, all 90,000 exception
    codes were entered manually by Convergys and uploaded to DIRECTV through a team at
    another site. As a result, there was a two to four hour lag time between when the exceptions
    were entered and when DIRECTV could view them. Also, neither Convergys supervisors nor
    agents assigned to the DIRECTV account could be assured they had the most up-to-date
    information without WebStation.

    To overcome these challenges and bridge the reporting gap, DIRECTV and Convergys
    partnered with an implementation of TotalView SmartSync Suite, which is designed to facilitate a
    seamless data exchange between systems. “SmartSync has helped us streamline the reporting
    functions between the two organizations,” said Andressa Marlan, senior analyst from DIRECTV.
    “Now we’re able to quickly react to changing conditions in real time.” By using Smart Sync
    Suite, Convergys is able to use an automated system connected to their IEX TotalView server to
    send exception code updates to DIRECTV’s IEX TotalView server in 15-minute intervals. Instead
    of having the Convergys team logon to the DIRECTV server remotely, Convergys staff now
    enters agent data, creates schedules and inputs changes to those schedules into its own server
    and imports the data to DIRECTV. Convergys builds its schedules based on forecast information
    supplied by DIRECTV. The information is exchanged between the two organizations via
    SmartSync. With SmartSync, Convergys is able to relay schedules to DIRECTV two weeks in
    advance, send any updates three days prior to the actual plan and import intraday changes at
    30-minute intervals throughout the day.

    DIRECTV has been working with IVR developer West Corporation for almost 12 years. With
    1,500 television channels and endless combinations of packages to choose from, DIRECTV’s
    touch-tone IVR was getting maze-like. It was time to begin the conversion to a natural language
    speech-enabled system. DIRECTV’s upfront routing is done by West’s natural language speech
    system, and the sports package ordering system is undergoing a conversion. Movie ordering by
    phone is a simple directed-dialogue speech system and the rest of the system is touch-tone.

    DIRECTV’s call center technology manager Mike Uhlenkamp in 2006 describes the nature and
    the history of DIRECTV’s close business partnership with West Corporation. “Our direction
    going forward is to utilize the right technology for the right purposes,” said IT director Jeffrey
    Knight in 2006. “In some cases that may be natural language, in others a directed dialogue
    speech application and in others, DTMF (touch-tone). Customers will definitely see continued
    growth in our use of natural language and other speech products, but it won’t mean the
    elimination of DTMF.”

    of-the-art NV9640/41 Router Control Panels that include up to 30 re-legendable LCD buttons

    factor in our selection of NVISION routers for the DIRECTV backbone signal transmission,” said
    Hanno Basse, vice president, Engineering, DIRECTV, Inc. “For DIRECTV this means confidence

    DIRECTV is using Antenna Software’s Antenna Mobility Platform (AMP) and client software to
    provide CRM data to its 60-strong sales force, which supports about 7,000 nationwide dealers
    selling subscriptions to the company’s satellite services. When visiting a dealer, sales reps need
    up-to-date information from reports such as sales metrics, activation metrics, trending and
    availability of support tools and promotions, explains Erik Walters, project manager, sales
    operations, at DIRECTV. The company has been using Oracle’s Siebel CRM On Demand
    hosted service, which allows access to this information from any Web connection. However, the
    service by itself is PC-centric, attempting to jam a whole PC screen onto the sales forces’
    Research In Motion BlackBerry 8700 devices, which proved too complex to use. The Antenna
    Software client software rolled out as a small-device complement to Siebel CRM On Demand at

    use. “HP has been a strategic partner for DIRECTV since we were a start-up company,” said

    highly specialized auxiliary staff, has consistently identified business and operational initiatives to
