CX customer wins and case studies

Google Enjoys First CCaaS Win at Fiber Network Firm Segra

Google has won the first commercial deployment of its contact center as a service (CCaaS) offering at Segra, the fiber network operator based in Charlotte, North Carolina, which is implementing Google Cloud Contact Center AI (CCAI) Platform to achieve a more modernized CX. The CCaaS product, first launched by Google in March this year, integrates AI and cloud scalability with customer relationship management (CRM) software to unify sales, marketing, and support teams.

Rose Chambers, Segra chief information officer, says the Google CCAI workspace increases agent productivity, while a straightforward agent-facing graphical user interface (GUI) and easily configurable setup enable speedy adaptation and implementation of the platform. The intelligent global and customized call routing feature is another plus, Chambers notes, maximizing efficiency in call management either individually or across all interactive voice response (IVR) systems.

Additional customer enhancements being planned by Google for the platform include an AI-powered IVR self-service virtual agent, multi-channel communications to include SMS and chat, and a screen pop with customer information.

Segra, one of the largest independent fiber network companies in the Eastern US, owns and operates more than 30,000 route-miles of advanced fiber infrastructure network throughout the mid-Atlantic and Southeastern US. Customers include healthcare and higher education organizations, as well as telecommunications carriers, enterprises, and governments.

Qualtrics is Chosen as Partner in Q3 by Several US Healthcare Organizations

Experience management platform provider Qualtrics was selected by dozens of leading healthcare organizations in the third quarter this year to deliver ease and empathy to patients and caregivers. Harnessing data to improve patient care has lasting implications for providers as well as patients, who are more likely to stay with and recommend a provider when they feel heard and are treated with empathy.  

Qualtrics patient experience (PX) solutions transform data into real-time insights, capturing patient feedback wherever it is being shared, and initiating action to improve experiences before ratings, brand perception, or customer trust is impacted. At the same time, Qualtrics employee experience (EX) solutions facilitate gathering, analyzing, and acting on staff feedback, enabling healthcare leaders to immediately recognize employees when they obtain positive patient feedback and to identify problems when they occur, to improve employee engagement and retention over time. Qualtrics CrossXM then unlocks the relationship and drivers between patient experience and employee experience, so that interventions can have the greatest impact on both. 

In the third quarter, the following healthcare organizations selected Qualtrics to create a more digitally and emotionally connected experience that drives value: 

Ascension, among the largest private healthcare systems in the US, selected Qualtrics to build a digitally connected healthcare system rooted in patient feedback and action that goes beyond regulatory reporting.

Covenant Physician Partners, Inc., headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, selected Qualtrics to help its national network of ambulatory surgery centers and physician practices deliver superior value to patients, physicians, associates, and communities through professional and innovative services. Qualtrics will also help Covenant improve the patient experience, especially as the organization continues to grow and scale.

Intermountain Healthcare, a Utah-based nonprofit system of 33 hospitals and a medical group with more than 3,800 physicians and advanced practice clinicians at 385 clinics, selected Qualtrics as its unified technology platform to listen, understand, and act on experience feedback received across all channels from patients, caregivers, and staff. With an intelligent system of action in place, Intermountain will focus on patient experience improvements and real-time service recovery, while also benchmarking experience measures against peers and across industries to stay competitive for talent and customer loyalty.

Shannon Medical Center, an independent regional hospital based in San Angelo, Texas, aiming to achieve a five-star rating and gain national recognition, will connect CX and EX together on the Qualtrics XM platform. Shannon hopes to improve patient outcomes and loyalty, reduce employee attrition rates, and increase overall revenue, starting with employee lifecycle and engagement pulses to begin connecting how EX impacts the patient experience.
