LinkLive, a leading cloud-based Contact Center-as-a-Service (CCaaS) provider, has partnered with the United Way of Pennsylvania to deliver the new Pennsylvania 211 (PA 211) Network hotline to more Pennsylvanians.

The PA 211 Network is a free and confidential service, available by phone, text message, live chat or self-service on its website, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to connect Pennsylvanians with health and human services.

Kristen Rotz, president and PA 211 executive director at United Way of Pennsylvania, noted:

PA 211 is committed to continuing to grow our capacity to help community members in search of support.

Comprehensive support

Through secure, multi-channel communication, LinkLive powers PA 211's options, allowing any resident and agent to connect via live chat with real-time translation, allowing the caller and agent to converse in the former's native language.

LinkLive also uses third-party data regarding location, need, and eligibility to expedite referrals to community resources. This reduces agent handling time and allows for a better customer experience.

Future enhancements to PA 211 will include LinkLive AI, which recognizes keywords and guides an agent to minimize time spent reviewing program eligibility for residents.

“Our new contact center solution allows our call center agents to quickly and confidently assist residents through any communication channel, in any language. LinkLive will make our agents more efficient and improve the customer experience,” added Rotz.
