Start putting the connected customer first with an omnichannel approach.
More than 59 million people in the UK now use a smartphone, creating a landscape where fast, connected, and personalised service is no longer a nice-to-have – but a competitive essential. And yet, despite its size, the UK insurance Contact Centre is still playing catch up to meet customer expectations.
How we can help you to optimise your insurance Contact Centre
In an age where 76% of people don’t want to speak to an agent for simple service tasks – like signing up for a new insurer or checking their premium – an omnichannel approach is essential.
Inflexible legacy systems
Out-of-date systems can account for significant issues with agent productivity, customer experience and TCO. To make migrating to a new cloud system as frictionless and cost-effective as possible, we provide AI, automation and integration services.
Whether evolution or revolution is your strategy, we ensure end-of-life technologies are replaced with innovative and reliable solutions that deliver the features and benefits you need.
Empowering meaningful interactions
First contact resolution
Investment in FCR brings significant short- and long-term benefits. Anticipating needs and delivering customers to the most appropriate resource quickly pays dividends in increasing revenues and reducing customer churn.
Consumer-driven business strategies and staying ahead in a multi-channel world can make or break an insurance institution. We can help you take all the steps necessary to stay ahead of the competition and enable you to attract and retain customers.
The age of the connected customer
Security & compliance
Having a secure environment will mean you tick many of the compliance boxes, as well as creating a great service for your customers. Our intelligent security solutions are designed to simplify your compliance requirements.
Using AI to insure a great customer experience
Ageas decided to enhance its customer choice by introducing AI and voicebot options to support customers with straightforward queries, whilst maintaining the availability of Contact Centre agents for complex inquiries. The delivery saw an overall reduction of 40-45 seconds per fully-verified call.
