Leicester, England Colleagues Gather to Show Support for the Three Lions in the World Cup

While England’s loss to Croatia in a semifinal match that went into extra time was indeed heartbreaking, all of England can take solace that the Three Lions advanced all the way to the semifinal of the World Cup – a feat they have not accomplished since 1990. And while as yet an unsubstantiated rumor, many people believe that the barbeque held by the Leicester office had something to do with their great showing.

Pictured here, Technical Consultant Mark Ainge proudly wears the colors while taking a break from the food and football-related festivities. Here’s hoping for better luck in 2022!

Team Convergys Takes First Live Support Call

We were excited to announce that yesterday morning , our Convergys colleagues took their first Direct-to-Store (level 1) call from one of our customer’s stores!

That important first call marks our soft go-live with Convergys providing this important front line service to our customers, keeping their stores operational and ringing sales. The project is still in full swing and slated to continue throughout the summer, with much hard work still ahead of us, but the team wanted to take a moment to celebrate this milestone.

Congratulations to all on a job very well done!
