How CCI Is Poised To Continue Delivery Within The Sector

With a focus on coal-powered energy generation, South Africa’s Power utility authorities are facing a difficult time in meeting demand while balancing future growth with its current infrastructure. However, the country has set up a separate entity to repurpose decommissioned sites as well as establish a new Nuclear facility that will produce and additional 2,500 megawatts of power with the government looking at new ways to fill the energy gap and alleviate the national gap for future success. 

These plans, however, will take 3 to 5 years to produce tangible outputs and the country has begun to adapt to a new energy deficient normal. CCI as market leaders in SA, continuously monitor emerging market impacting trends and foreplan with purpose. CCI has, through the years, fortified its energy and  power provision capability to ensure optimal operating standards as necessitated by the nature of the operations.

CCI’s facilities are purpose built, meaning that even though the nation struggles, CCI’s business continuity planning, sustainability initiatives and investment in infrastructure has ensured that its operating environment continues regardless of the energy struggles currently faced by the market.

The CCI facilities are powered by both the national grid and by 24/7 generator coverage alongside uninterruptible power supply devices that provide seamless transition between the grid shutdowns and the CCI energy infrastructure with onsite fuel to power its generators for a 12-hour period in case of complete grid failure.

In addition, the floor and server room Universal Power Supply devices are installed at alternate locations to protect against power fluctuations and provide continuous supply in case of a complete power loss. All power systems run through weekly and monthly maintenance checks as well as asset component audits, with real-time tests and benchmarking against the utility needs of client campaigns within all CCI buildings.

In addition, CCI servers, systems and hardware structures are all housed on AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google infrastructure that are all held at the highest tier of reliability and 99.9% uptime with multiple suppliers to provide network redundancies.

It’s A Kind Of Magic

So, we had the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant report for BPO Contact Centres released a week or two ago.
