Delivering Performance with Best In-Class Technology

Dialog and KBSL Partner to Upgrade NDB Contact Center

Dialog Enterprise and Dialog Finance have come together with KBSL Information Technologies to
upgrade the contact center of one of Sri Lanka’s leading banks – NDB Bank (National Development Bank
PLC). The collaboration brings together Dialog’s expertise in business telephony and financial solutions,
along with KBSL’s systems integration capabilities to optimize NDB’s current operational practices.

NDB and KBSL have had a longstanding partnership for over 7 years, and are now focusing on elevating
their unified communication and contact center platform. The solution is front ended by Dialog
Enterprise Solutions (DES) and Dialog Finance to enable the enhancement of NDB’s existing capabilities
and improve the business/operational expansions. The platform upgrade solution delivered by KBSL is
powered by cutting edge Avaya technology that consists of inbound and outbound capabilities along
with reporting and compliance recording, advanced routing strategies and self-service automations.

Navin Pieris, the Vice President of Enterprise Business & Large Enterprise Sales at Dialog Axiata PLC said,
“In today’s challenging environment, it is important that we help enable businesses to provide their best
service delivery to customers. For this project, we understood that in the current climate with the
pandemic, businesses would rather utilise an OPEX or service-oriented XaaS (Anything as a Service)
model rather than a one-off CAPEX, so we stepped in along with KBSL to ensure the transformation of
NDB’s contact centre is as efficient and seamless as possible.”

The new solution offered to NDB not only strengthens their automation journey, it also creates an open
architecture to integrate business processes to enhance customer experience. Some of the technological
enhancements include, IVR automation, outbound automations, and multichannel enablement which
support an open architecture system to facilitate the bank’s future requirements as well.

“It has been our absolute pleasure to partner with Dialog to bring these technical solutions to NDB. We
know the importance of being future-proof and are honored to aid NDB in their journey to serve
customers at the highest possible standard,” said Ruwan Fernando, Chief Operations Officer – KBSL.

NDB Bank, named the “Bank of the Year Sri Lanka 2020” by the Banker Magazine UK, is the 4th largest
listed bank in Sri Lanka and the parent company of the NDB Group. The only financial services
conglomerate in Sri Lanka, NDB Group is uniquely positioned towards assisting the growth and
development of the Sri Lankan capital market to provide its customers seamless access to the product
and service offerings of all its group companies.
