A smart, scalable technology solution like this helps United Way improve the financial stability of low to moderate income families."
An increasing number of American’s are using MyFreeTaxes.com to file their tax returns. United Way was looking for a robust contact center solution to help address heavy call volumes during peak tax preparation and filing time. Additionally, United Way will use inContact's management dashboard to gain real-time access to call data, and to make necessary adjustments to servicing needs which will help in improving customer quality assurance.

By providing our cloud solution to United Way Worldwide, we're pleased to have a part in helping serve the needs of the public during the very busy and stressful tax season,” said Paul Jarman, inContact CEO.
The decision to opt for inContact’s services support was also driven by the proven success of a number of 2-1-1 call centers that use inContact for delivering support to community-based, volunteer-assisted free tax preparation services. inContact’s support will help United Way scale up quickly while providing support during the tax season.
