Success Story: National Energy Foundation (NEF)


The National Energy Foundation (NEF) is an independent charity working to improve energy use in buildings – helping to reduce fuel poverty and cut household carbon emissions.

When the pandemic forced the charity to switch to remote working, it needed to find a replacement for its desktop phone system so it could maintain the effectiveness of its services. NEF chose cloud telephony solution GoTo Connect for its user-friendliness and well-structured implementation process.

Camille Ruddle, Business Support Manager at NEF, says: “Ease-of-use was the biggest benefit for us. Switching to a completely new telephone system for a remote workforce could have been problematic. But using GoTo Connect made it very straightforward.”

As the cost of living and fuel crises increased demand for NEF services, particularly for its Better Housing Better Health helpline, the charity had to almost triple its workforce and enhance its telephony systems. It chose GoTo Contact Center to provide the enhanced call management required to deliver a professional helpline service, and to provide the performance analytics required by funders.
