BT Includes Special Service Customers In The Move to all IP

BT Includes Special Service Customers In The Move to all IP
From September 2020, BT Consumer will gradually start including Special Service customers into their provision of Digital Voice, taking extra care to ensure Special Service users aren’t adversely affected by the move to all IP. Customers using Special Services continue to be identified through various means such as Alarm Receiving Centre calls and specific questions as part of the customer order journey. Where they identify Special Service customers, BT will advise them to inform their Special Service provider, be it telecare alarms, intruder alarms or other signalling equipment, to make them aware that their service is moving to Digital Voice. The Service Provider will need to decide what appropriate action is needed. Intruder alarm users or other special services equipment users will be advised to contact their service provider. Telecare users will be advised to speak with their provider by making an alarm call. The transition to all IP Voice services...

1st June 2020 - Yorcoms relaunch helps keep customers connected during lockdown

1st June 2020 - Yorcoms relaunch helps keep customers connected during lockdown
The impact of Covid-19 on housing, health, and care providers - and their residents, customers, and patients - has been unprecedented. Lockdown and the necessary limitations on social contact imposed by the Government have hugely increased the risk of loneliness, social isolation, and boredom for many vulnerable people.    At Yorcoms, we understand that keeping connected has never been as important as it is right now. Whether that is customers staying in touch with family, friends and loved ones, or shopping for groceries online, or providers trying to keep in contact with their residents, we believe that providing the infrastructure to make this ‘connectivity’ possible is one of our key responsibilities during this time. We also understand the issues faced by our customers and with these in mind we have worked to develop innovative solutions as part of our exciting relaunch.   Our ‘technology for good’ ethos drove us to ask how could we safely implement our technologies to help relieve feelings of isolation and boredom? How could we keep people connected whilst adhering to government guidelines? How could we support...
