TERACAI Partners with Generations Bank to Develop Smart Office

May 27, 2015 –

Video technologies enhance organizational efficiencies and customer experiences

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – TERACAI has partnered with Generations Bank to develop a smart office at its newest location in Farmington. The smart office, powered by Cisco TelePresence video technologies, enables Generations Bank to increase organizational efficiencies and enhance customer experiences.

The smart office allows customers who visit the rural Farmington office to immediately connect with specialists at other locations, providing unified, high-quality service.

“We can connect our customers with somebody who can help them right away,” said Menzo Case, president and CEO of Generations Bank. “That makes better use of our customers’ time and better use of our time, so it’s a win-win for both of us. It also shows our commitment to technology.”

Through its partnership with TERACAI, Generations Bank has achieved the following outcomes:

  • Enhanced customer experiences through Cisco TelePresence solution at new Farmington smart office
  • Improved organizational efficiencies and reduced travel costs by connecting team members at multiple locations through videoconferencing
  • Enriched communications between employees and clients enabled by upgraded Cisco voice infrastructure

“Video has the power to connect organizations and people in incredible ways, and we enjoyed working with Generations Bank to help bring the vision for this smart office to life,” said Peter Belyea, president of TERACAI. “As a technology partner, we believe it’s essential to understand the business needs first, and then determine the most effective way to create a solution with the technology.”
