Designed to be reliable, secure, compliant, and scalable, the Five9 platform helps contact centers increase productivity, be agile, boost revenue, and create customer trust and loyalty.

When Five9 came to 5W, the team was tasked with building Five9's media presence, maintaining a majority share of voice amongst competitors and executing on brand awareness to solidify the company as the leading provider of cloud contact center software.



The goal throughout the campaign has been to position the company as the leading provider of cloud contact center software. In the initial phases of the campaign, 5W primarily focused on securing opportunities in trade publications in order to build a media footprint for Five9, and to make reporters aware of the company and its CEO. The 5W team also used the company's quarterly earnings reports as a way to give the CEO visibility and tell the Five9's corporate story. This helped increase Five9's brand recognition and overall media presence.

Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, 5W saw an opportunity to capitalize on the fact that many businesses were shifting to work from home, meaning that on premise call centers were becoming remote, and companies needed to have the right software to keep their operations running smoothly. The team was active in offering up different executives to discuss topics such as how virtual contact centers can help businesses thrive during and post-pandemic, communication strategies to delight customers and how intelligent virtual assistants can improve and automate customer service. Additionally, the shift to WFH lead to exponential company growth and revenues, leading to tier-1 coverage in key business and technology outlets, as well as broadcast opportunities around earnings periods.
