EDISON, NJ -- Handling customer calls is about to get easier and
more efficient for Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile,
the largest cellular carrier on
the East Coast, despite the fact that the number of calls will continue to increase as
Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile continues to grow its customer base. The company
plans to install an ACSS-Automated Customer Support System in the second quarter of 1996.
The system will help remove all the paper processes that are now on the desk of
a customer service specialist by providing immediate access to electronic
manuals and problem resolution software. The new system, developed by
Advantage kbs and
now being tested by Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile, includes their flagship
product IQSupport(TM) Pro which provides customer service specialists with
information and solutions quickly and accurately. In addition, it will help the
company keep pace with the demands of a rapidly growing customer base.
"Change is never easy," said Charles Hand, Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile's
customer service director. "The system will empower our customer service
specialists to resolve customer questions quickly and correctly by using an intelligent
on-line assistant for customer queries on billing, service offerings and
equipment. We believe our customer service specialists will provide the best
customer care possible, which is our business priority and market differentiator."
Bell Atlantic NYNEX Mobile's customer service specialists currently provide
telephone support to more than 3.5 million customers in six service regions.

Coast and the second largest provider in the United States. Headquartered in
