Videos of Some 2016 Award Winners

We call them the trailblazers of CX. Take a look at these videos of 2016 winners. See what they accomplished despite major challenges by using the Genesys Customer Experience Platform:

Vodafone, one of the largest telcos in Germany, unified its communications channels and took CX to new levels by differentiating its service through digital, mobile, and social channels. Vodafone now serves customers 30 seconds faster, with one department handling 18 million monthly cross-channel contacts. In addition, Vodafone saw a turnaround in Net Promoter Scores.

Red Hat, global provider of open source software solutions, struggled with disconnected contact centers that couldn’t support rapid growth. First, they created a global voice queue, and as a result the whole company functions as one virtual team. This let them easily manage all voice interactions in a consistent, seamless manner across the world. This improved workflow management and cut customer handling time by 10%.

Canadian telco company TELUS lacked visibility into its customers’ end-to-end journeys when it turned to Genesys to help. Now, customers connect seamlessly from digital or mobile channels to higher levels of support. TELUS improved CSAT and Net Promoter Scores and increased average spend, while churn plummeted and employee engagement skyrocketed.
